The new Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout! is a MUST do the next time you visit Disney’s California Adventure park!
I know we are all still licking our wounds at the closing of Tower of Terror earlier this year…..so the question is, does Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout! live up to the classic scary ride??
Well the answer is ABSOLUTELY!
Disney did not complicate things….they knew that what we, the fans, LOVED about TOT was the perfect sequence of drops and the intense way of not knowing exactly when they would come. So the smart thing to do was keep that a part of this new ride. They did not change the mechanics whatsoever….if anything, they enhanced it! It is longer and there are more drops than before!
The theme was not hard to figure out. It takes place inside the Collector’s fortress and shows all of the items that he has gained over time. Disney magic even gave us super fans a hidden object to freak out about…..the old Matterhorn Mountain Yeti has been collected and is on display inside the ride queue in all his glory! Disney never disappoints I tell ya….not when it comes to the details.
The difference with GOTG is the dark, scary, suspense that is the Twilight Zone is not present here. We follow Rocket on his quest to save all of his Guardian friends. But what kicks it up a notch is the MUSIC! That soundtrack that we came to know and love about the movie, is the shining light of this new ride. Plus they change up the song on each new ride. It is like a big dance party!
I know it’s going to take some getting used to….I miss Tower of Terror! Always will! But when Disney changes things up, they don’t mess around! This ride is so much fun and is a new favorite in our family! Even my 6 year old LOVED it….and she was terrified at first.
Bottom Line….The new Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout! is a MUST do the next time you visit Disney’s California Adventure park!
