Last Friday, the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror in Disney’s California Adventure completed its transformation into the new Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout! And it looks awesome! Though I do have mixed feelings.
On the one hand, this attraction sadly replaces an already iconic Disney attraction; on the other hand, the former DCA Tower of Terror was reportedly not as good as the Disney Hollywood Studios version in Florida.
On the one hand, we finally have a Marvel attraction in an American Disney park (with Hong Kong Disneyland having recently opened the Iron Man Experience); on the other hand, this attraction is only in California with no chance of it or any other Marvel attraction ever coming to Florida. (Damn you, Universal! Why you still holding onto those theme park rights?!?)
Judging from the footage of the ride and show building, the attraction looks just as awesome as the GOTG movies, and it probably feels just as awesome as well. Too bad I will never have the chance to actually ride it. (Again, Universal, why for you cling to dem theme park rights? I want Marvel at Disney World, damn it! I don’t want to pay to get into Universal just to get my Marvel fix.)
Anyway, for those of you who can’t make it to California (or for those who can but can’t afford to), here’s some footage of the ride and everything it has to offer—including an animatronic Rocket Raccoon. (Damn it! I wanna see an animatronic Rocket in person! Universal, hand over dem rights! They should belong to Disney!)
