California Adventure gets more super with Guardians of the Galaxy

Disneyland announced today that the park's latest attraction, Guardians of the Galaxy - Mission: BREAKOUT, is set to open at Disney's California Adventure on May 27.

Guardians of the Galaxy - Mission: BREAKOUT! will feature characters from the movie based on a Marvel comic book series.

According to Disney, the ride centers on Rocket Raccoon, as you help him and his pals break out of the Collector's Fortress. "You can celebrate the arrival of Guardians of the Galaxy-Mission BREAKOUT! and join forces with legendary Super Heroes", Disney creative entertainment director David Duffy said in a statement.

Also, guests will be able to interact with many of their favorite Marvel characters, including Groot, Captain America, Spider-Man and many more.

The following activities will be available for a limited time, as part of the "Summer of Heroes". The best part? Disney is promising a Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Dance Off! - Don't be surprised if you run into the Guardians of the Galaxy on their way to the Milano, with Star-Lord firing up his old-school boom box to get the party started. Everyone is bound to get in the groove and show off their moves during this awesome rock "n" roll bash! Star-Lord and his buddies are taking over at Disneyland/California Adventure.

The changes come just weeks after the opening of the new Disney film "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" on May 5.

During those months, guests can be trained by the Avengers, witness Black Widow save the park and find special super hero-themed merchandise throughout the park.

The summer brings more excitement at Disneyland Park, too, with the return of the Disneyland Railroad and Rivers of America attractions, including the "Fantasmic!" nighttime spectacular returning later this summer.
