Following Rocket into a tummy-knotting adventure, the sort that potentially involves The Collector's fortress? Total intensity, for you know the quippy, take-no-guff "Guardians of the Galaxy" raccoon won't lead you into some humdrum, yawn-inducing happening.
Rather, Rocket is serving as a snappy guide at an attraction that'll soon make its debut at Disney California Adventure. Called Guardians of the Galaxy — Mission: BREAKOUT!, the attraction, which was built inside the former Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, involves rescuing the Guardians of the Galaxy, "the newest acquisitions" in Taneleer Tivan's collection.
The "Rockin' Free-Fall Adventure" will open on Saturday, May 27. The tall building definitely boasts some drops, and some unusual floral specimens, too, (think "Gardens of the Galaxy"), and the retro-fied feel-good music found in the films.
What to do, where to go and what to see
Will the ride be part of the FastPass program? It will be, yes.
Will there be other superheroic goings-on around Disney California Adventure? In fact, May 27 is the launch of Summer of Heroes, a summer-long extravaganza incorporating a number of different events, meet-and-greets, and fun times.
Look for the Avengers Training Initiative, a "Guardians of the Galaxy" Awesome Dance Off, a Heroic Encounter with Black Widow, a chance to say hello to varous super heroes in Hollywood Land, and more.
Summer of Heroes also opens on May 27, like Guardians of the Galaxy — Mission: BREAKOUT!, but note its end date: Sunday, Sept. 10.
