ANAHEIM, CALIF. - The latest attraction at Disneyland Resort has a big connection to the Pacific Northwest: Lake Stevens native Chris Pratt.
The star of Marvel’s "Guardians of the Galaxy" franchise is front and center in Guardians of the Galaxy - Mission: BREAKOUT!, a drop tower attraction in Disney California Adventure Park. It took the place of the Tower of Terror.
Guests enter the colorful fortress and learn it belongs to The Collector, who's captured the Guardians of the Galaxy. Rocket the Raccoon is breaking them out, and it’s a wild ride.
The film's entire cast shot scenes for the ride with director James Gunn. There are six ride profiles, with different music, scenarios, and harrowing drops.
"It definitely has all the music, the humor, the irreverence that you would expect from 'Guardians of the Galaxy' as a film,” said Brian Crosby with Marvel Themed Entertainment. “Fans who come from the comic books or animation are going to find little Easter eggs here and there that we've thrown in as well."
Watch to see how Jim Dever and Kim Holcomb reacted when they were two of the first people in the world to experience the attraction.
