Disneyland Just Announced the Opening Date for the Guardians of the Galaxy Ride, and It’s Surprisingly Soon

We are Groot

Hailing all space bandits. Disneyland announced today that the park’s latest attraction, Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT, is set to open at Disney’s California Adventure on May 27.

The new attraction replaces the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror—which closed for the remodel in January—and will have you blasting into an adventure with Rocket (the ill-tempered, genetically-altered raccoon voiced by Bradley Cooper) to save the captive Guardians from the fortress of Taneleer Tivan (aka The Collector aka Benecio Del Toro). The whole experience will be set to the film’s rollicking ’70s rock soundtrack. You may have to ride this thing more than once as, apparently, the experiences differ each go-round.

The grand-opening of the ride kicks off the “Summer of Heroes” at the park (May 27—September 10) that will include appearances by other Marvel heroes like Captain America, Spider-Man, Hawkeye, and Black Widow. The best part? Disney is promising a Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Dance Off!, so you’d better start practicing your moves now…
