Guardians of the Galaxy Ride

There are only a few more days until Disneyland opens the doors to its first Marvel attraction. Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! is in the same location as the theme park’s beloved Tower of Terror ride, and it’s been completely revamped from the inside out to look like a fortress that belongs to The Collector, the eccentric character played by Benicio Del Toro in the Marvel Studios films. You can learn all about the attraction right here, but a new video interview with Del Toro has surfaced that gives us our first look inside the attraction…and this thing is practically overflowing with cool props and easter eggs.

Disneyland is getting ready to open their first Marvel attraction next month. As you know, Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! is a retrofit of Twilight Zone’s Tower of Terror in Disney California Adventure park. Yesterday, Walt Disney Imagineering gave a hardhat tour of the ride to a bunch of journalists.

We have compiled together the more interesting information revealed during the tour. Hit the jump to learn more about the Guardians of the Galaxy ride.
