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.

The Collector's Fortress model
A massive transformation is now underway now at Disney California Adventure park, as the Hollywood Tower Hotel (the building that houses Twilight Zone’s Tower Of Terror) is being remodeled into The Collector’s Fortress.
