Disney theme parks have a big summer ahead: new attractions including The Guardians of the Galaxy ride in California and the Avatar world of Pandora in Florida are making their debut.
Beginning May 27, Disney will unveil the "Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT!" ride where the former "The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror" stands at the Orange County park.
The ride promises a breath-taking free-fall accompanied by Star Lord's "awesome mix tape," as well as new audio and visual effects.
