Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! is an accelerated drop tower dark ride attraction at Disney California Adventure that is opened on May 27, 2017.[1][2] The attraction is a retheme of The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, using the same infrastructure and ride system, but will instead be based on Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy film series, and included the characters Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Groot, and Rocket Raccoon, as well as The Collector.[1][3] The attraction opened 22 days after the release of the film Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. It is the second Disney attraction to be based on a Marvel property, following Iron Man Experience which opened at Hong Kong Disneyland in January 2017.


Announced at the 2016 San Diego Comic-Con, the attraction replaced The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, which closed on January 3, 2017.[1][4][5][6] It will be the first Disney attraction based on Marvel Comics characters in the United States, and may be followed by other Marvel-themed rides at Disney California Adventure.[7][8][9] Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Benicio del Toro, and Bradley Cooper will reprise their roles as Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, The Collector, and the voice of Rocket, respectively.[10][11] Due to Marvel's 1994 contract with Universal Parks & Resorts (pre-dating Disney's 2009 purchase of Marvel Entertainment), the Marvel name is not allowed to be used as part of the ride's title or advertising.[12] James Gunn directed all of the scenes involving the cast.

Tyler Bates, composer of the Guardians of the Galaxy films, wrote the incidental music for the attraction's queue.[13] The attraction also features six songs for the ride's six drop profiles, some of which were suggested by Gunn.[14][15]



The attraction will be based in the Collector's fortress-esque collection called the Tivan Collection, as seen in the film Guardians of the Galaxy. The Collector (Taneleer Tivan) will be showing off his latest acquisitions, the Guardians of the Galaxy (team), in customized display cases. However, Rocket Raccoon has secretly escaped his case and asks the guests for help. Guests will then board a gantry lift, where they help Rocket try to free the other Guardians.[1]


On April 6, 2017, a construction worker suffered a minor knee injury while working on the attraction. The worker was lowered down by a harness and rescued by firefighters.[17]


  • One of Ultron's Bodies can be seen, as part of the Collector's Collection, in the queue of this attraction.
  • Stan Lee made a cameo in the introduction by The Collector as one of the collections.
  • Figment ,Harold the Yeti from the Matterhorn Bobsleds and Delores the octopus from the Country Bear Vacation Hoedown can be seen, as part of the Collector's Collection
