Friends, countrymen, reporters from all news stations, lend me your screams! Disney's newest ride, Guardians of the Galaxy- Mission: BREAKOUT! will surely make you laugh, cry, and still wish you had your own Baby Groot. One news reporter for ABC claimed the ride would be "no big deal," but the news station's bloopers tell a different story.
Set in the former Hollywood Tower of Terror, the ride begins with Rocket the Raccoon's sillouhette running up to the double doors and pulling some wires apart. The entire space turns red before the ride car begins its swift series of drops.
If you remember anything about the Hollywood Tower of Terror, it may be the slightly terrifying pit-of-your-stomach-flipping drop that takes you from the top of the Tower to the bottom. You'll get to see Peter and Gamora having an argument before going off to fight a tentacled alien, a hungry toothy space monster, and Baby Groot high fiving the team on a job well done (just imagine you're tanding there with him).
Another ABC Action News reporter had a difficult time with the drops and had to put his head between his knees at one point. To quote Chicken Run, it's time to "kiss your bums good-bye" folks.
Guardians of the Galaxy- Mission: BREAKOUT! officially opened to the public Memorial Day weekend. Cast members Zoe Saldana (Gamora), Michael Rooker (Yondu), Pom Klementieff (Mantis), and Benicio Del Toro (Taneleer Tivan/ The Collector) joined director James Gunn and Marvel president Kevin Feige for the opening event.
“It’s a complete new story for ‘Guardians’ but playing into the movie mythology,” Walt Disney and Resorts chairman Bob Chapek told Variety. “James Gunn kept us true to the characters and the mythology of ‘Guardians of the Galaxy.'”
“Our fans range from super die-hard Marvel fans all the way to casual fans. Everybody can relate to the core story: we have a hero trying to save his buddies, but done in a very adrenaline pumping way.”
Guardians of the Galaxy: Volume 2 is now in theaters. It made $732.6 million in the United States and $783 million worldwide. The first movie only made $773 million worldwide during its release in 2014.
