Halloween is just around the corner and for Marvel fans lucky enough to go to Disney California Adventure this fall, they will get to experience a spooky version of the theme park's Guardians of the Galaxy -- Mission BREAKOUT attraction.
By day the ride will operate normally, with guests arriving at the attraction's museum-like area that is actually Taneleer Tivan's collection of objects from around the universe. Among those objects? The Guardians of the Galaxy. Tivan, perhaps better known as The Collector, has collected the Guardians team and, guided by Rocket, visitors have to help break them out with signature Guardians chaos ensuing in the process.
But in the special Halloween edition of the ride, visitors to the attraction after sunset find themselves on a frightening second mission. In Guardians of the Galaxy – Monsters After Dark, guests have to rescue the left-behind Groot, who is stuck inside The Collector's Fortress with all the creatures released in the process of the Guardians escape and, as seen in the video above, there are lots of frightening creatures to deal with. It doesn’t matter what The Collector’s assistant, Apheta, says. This is more than just a "minor power outage."
While none of the creatures are directly seen in the short clip above, they can definitely be heard and it appears there are many of them on the loose. Several people with various tools to capture the creatures can be seen sneaking through corridors hoping to get to the creatures before the creatures get them in this clever Halloween twist.
Giving Guardians of the Galaxy -- Mission: BREAKOUT a Halloween twist is fitting considering that the ride, which opened on May 27 as part of the "Summer of Heroes" celebration, was built on the site of the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror. However, fans wanting to check out the spooky bonus attraction will need to act fast. Guardians of the Galaxy -- Monsters After Dark will only be available at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California through October 31st.
