Disney Unveils First Guardians of the Galaxy Ride Exterior Photos
Disney has unveiled the first official photos of its brand new Guardians of the Galaxy Ride at Disney California Adventure. The ride, which has replaced the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, has gone up with remarkable speed, and the rumour mill expects this attraction to anchor a Marvel overhaul of the Hollywood area of the Park.
The new exterior is a departure from its previous iteration, and is meant to represent the Collector’s Fortress from the franchise. The ride will feature 6 different ride modes, giving a different ride each time. Disney has also announced that each will contain a different song, from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s:
- “Hit Me With Your Best Shot” by Pat Benatar (1980)
- “Give Up The Funk” by Parliament (1975)
- “Born To Be Wild” by Steppenwolf (1968)
- “I Want You Back” by The Jackson 5 (1969)
- “Free Ride” by The Edgar Winter Group (1973)
- “Burning Love” by Elvis Presley (1972)
“A strong identifiable rhythm and a memorable hook were key points,” said John Dennis, Executive Creative Director, Walt Disney Imagineering on the Disney Parks Blog. “…The rock ‘n’ roll music playing on board the ride is just plain fun. The songs, each paired with its own ride profile, give us six unique experiences.”
The ride, officially ‘Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT!’, officially opens at the Park on May 27th, with Cast Member and Annual Passholder previews being held before this date.
