The evolution of the Tower of Terror into Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! is well underway at Disney California Adventure and today Disney/Marvel have offered the first official look at the work that will be transforming the attraction’s facade.
Imagineer John Mauro talked to the new exterior which will feature comic-reminiscent colors and also feature reflective gold/silver accents and details inspired by oil refineries.
Featuring characters from the blockbuster films, Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! is an epic new adventure combining the familiar, breathtaking free-fall sensation with all-new visual and audio effects, including music inspired by the popular Guardians of the Galaxy film soundtrack.The attraction will feature a variety of randomized ride experiences, so you never know which exact adventure you will get!
Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! opens summer 2017.
I can’t believe they used the term “beautiful” and “oil refinery” in the same descriptive sentence with a straight face.
That ain’t chocolate frosting on your cupcake folks.
Looks like they found a use for all of the leftover paint from Tomorrowland 98, and maybe even some of the decorations from around there.
I really am hoping that this project turns out great; however, I’m currently not impressed with what they are going to do to the exterior (based off these pictures). Logically, I understand that the ride experience isn’t going anywhere, so we must keep that in mind.. I am excited about how the music will be incorporated into the ride; music is really important for people (adds a new level to the attraction). Maybe, if this was a new attraction built from scratch the exterior would be more acceptable, but this is not the case here. I feel that it is going to be hard for our eyes to digest this new image because our minds eye will constantly attempt to make this new version look like the old version (for those of us that are familiar with this building). So with that said, if they are going for a junk yard look then they are on the right track…….. Just saying…..
