When it comes to Disney, they’ve always leaned on the side of family friendliness when it comes to the thrill level of their various rides and attractions. They tried something a tad different when they refurbished Disneyland’s Tower of Terror a few months ago and turned it into a Guardians of the Galaxy ride. Called Guardians of the Galaxy — Mission: BREAKOUT!, this ride has sought a new level of scariness without veering into excessive territory.
That new level of extremity will only intensify this fall when the ride gets a makeover for the park’s Halloween festivities. Once the sun goes down, the scariness will rise, and the ride will be called Guardians of the Galaxy — Monsters After Dark.
The ride won’t just receive some spooky decor, though (although its queue line will contain some scary upgrades), it’ll feature an entirely new ending that guests who ride it during the day won’t be able to experience. Once the Guardians have escaped and saved the day, the ride will launch into its new and frightening climax where the group will have to rescue baby Groot in the Collector’s fortress of terrifying creatures and monsters.
Guests will be used as bait to lure out these menacing creatures in an attempt to subdue them, and the face-to-face encounter that ensues is purely chaotic. Unlike normal ride experience where guests drop a few levels at a time, this Monsters After Dark experience will take you to the top level and drop you all the way down!
Still not convinced this ride will spike your blood pressure? The ride’s funky tunes straight from Quill’s mixtape will be replaced by original punk rock tracks made specially for the ride, and its sound effects track will also be replaced with noises that resemble something from a slasher horror flick.
If you are planning on experiencing Disney’s most experimental attraction re-design yet, don’t wait too long….Guardians of the Galaxy — Monsters After Dark is only scheduled to be around until October 31.
