In what seems to have caused a massive rift between Disney and Marvel fans over the weekend, the confirmation of the rumor (heard from Walt Disney World News Today ‘WDWNT’) regarding the retheming of Disneyland’s Twilight Zone Tower of Terror was announced at San Diego Comic Con Marvel Studios Panel. It appears that Orlando’s Tower is safe, for now.
Personally, I have always been a fan of the Twilight Zone, and the theming of the Tower is fun and very Hollywood. For Orlando, this attraction fits at Studios. As for Disneyland fans, I send my deepest condolences, as I am sure you have a certain soft spot for it. But, Disneyland fans, you DO have Mr. Toad and Snow White.
What do you think?
Here is the official press release:
Debuting in summer 2017, Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! will take Disney California Adventure park guests through the fortress-like museum of the mysterious Collector, who is keeping his newest acquisitions, the Guardians of the Galaxy, as prisoners. Guests will board a gantry lift which launches them into a daring adventure as they join Rocket Raccoon in an attempt to set free his fellow Guardians. The new attraction will transform the structure currently housing The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror™ into an epic new adventure, enhancing the breathtaking free fall sensation with new visual and audio effects to create a variety of ride experiences. Guests will experience multiple, random and unique ride profiles in which the rise and fall of the gantry lift rocks to the beat of music inspired by the film’s popular soundtrack.
