In a couple of weeks, the Guardians of the Galaxy will make a return to theaters, but that is not the only place the team will be popping up. Over at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, the park’s California Adventure area will see the ragtag space heroes appear in a brand-new ride. Guardians of the Galaxy - Mission: Breakout will have its grand opening soon enough, and details about the thrilling ride are just starting to trickle out ahead of the attraction’s late-May opening. According to reports, fans can expect plenty of thrills when they strap in for the ride, but adrenaline junkies will want to try out the attraction more than once. After all, it does have more than one turnout.
Recently, IGN was able to do a walkthrough of the ride, and the site learned more about the story which accompanies the attraction. The ride will begin as an elevator car moves upwards while Rocket disables the generator supplying the Collector’s museum. The location will be thrown into chaos afterwards, but fans have a chance to experience different routes from that point on.
The Guardians ride has a total of six experiences available for riders to sample. The routes do not require any different movements from the elevator, but riders will be met with different members of the superhero team with each story. You can check out the possibilities below:
- Drax vs. Beast
Quill vs. Orloni
The six routes will also be timed with different songs. Fans will know that the Guardians films are known for its eclectic soundtracks, and the folks at Disney were keen on making their ride as musical as possible. A full-list of tracks can be read below:
- "I Want You Back" – The Jackson 5
"Hit Me With Your Best Shot" - Pat Benatar
"Give Up The Funk" - Parliament
"Born To Be Wild" - Steppenwolf
"Burning Love" - Elvis Presley
"Free Ride" - Edgar Winter Group
