Exclusive Inside Look into Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT!

We visited as a guest of Disney

One of the best things about bringing your children to the Disneyland Resort and experiencing the different theme park attractions is that every attraction tells a story. Children become immersed into a magical world of storytelling around every corner while visiting the Disneyland Resort. One of the newest attractions coming to Disney California Adventure Park is Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! The theme park attraction is thrilling and rich with storytelling. While on a recent behind-the-scenes tour of the new ride, I was given an exclusive inside look into the story of Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT!

The story is about Taneleer Tivan also known as The Collector. He goes around collecting floral, fauna and many great items of value from all over the universe. He has some of those items on display at Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! Once the doors open on opening day, he will invite everyone to be his VIP guests to see his new pièce de résistance and his newesest addition to his collection – The Guardians of the Galaxy. He has finally been able to add them to his collection.

Once you approach the building, a sense that something is not right will come over you. At the marque, there will be spray paint across it, paw prints everywhere, and you’ll get that note that something has gone very wrong here. Once you go inside, you’ll realize that Rocket has already broken free, and he recruits you to help him break out The Guardians.

The building embodies the spirit of The Collector. It’s weird; it’s bold, it’s grandiose. There is a lot of gold and color. It’s also very arrogant looking just like The Collector. It’s unlike anything you’ve ever seen, is a little disruptive, and that’s the point of it. It is something at the edge of Disney California Adventure Park, where The Collector wants to lure tourists.

On the building is the logo of The Tivan Group that was featured in the first Guardians film. It’s a down arrow symbolizing The Collectors mining colony on the planet Knowhere. Knowhere is a Celestial head where they are mining precious fluids and organic matter. They use that to sell on the black market so The Collector can afford his amazing collection.

There are pipes all over the building that symbolize that the building has a lot of power going through it. The same organic matter that they mine on Planet Knowhere flows through the pipes and powers the giant generator that keeps every cage locked and secured. If the generator ever goes out – it would be utter chaos. At night the building will pulsate and glow.

While waiting outside the building, you’ll see a couple of his collections. The first is his amazing plant collection (known as Tivan’s Oasis or The Gardens of the Galaxy). There are over 30 different specimens in the garden. Outside is also a fun audio collection. Tivan has collected audio from all over the galaxy, and those are the sounds you’ll hear while waiting in line (keep your eyes and ears open for some Easter eggs).

The lobby is where the newest of Tivan’s collection is located. Once you walk in the door, the first thing you’ll see is a beautiful gold statue in the center of the room, and you’ll get a magnificent view of the collection. Things are overhead, all around you, and at the front of the lobby is a large screen where The Collectors promo video plays. The Collector is an extreme character, and this is the place where he puts some of his key artifacts that he’s collected from all over the galaxy on display. Some of the artifacts have been created just for this story, some are from films you’ve seen before, and some are from the comic books. You’ll recognize some items from Marvel’s Agents of Shield, Dr. Strange, Avengers: Age of Ultron and more. There are over 2,200 props in the attraction, and the items in the lobby wil change from time to time.

While exploring the lobby, you’ll will watch the video from The Collector giving a personalized welcome and to explain that he has captured The Guardians of the Galaxy.

Next you’ll will walk into Tivan’s private office where you’ll see how his daily operations work. This area has more of his personal items stored.

Then you’ll enter the maintenance bay before boarding the gantry lift to find The Guardians of the Galaxy. The maintenance bay is a creepy place. You’ll have an overall feeling that he is a villain while in this space.

Once on the ride, we have been recruited by Rocket to help break out The Guardians. You’ll board the lift and will launch straight up at the beginning of the ride. Your first stop with Rocket will be to blast the generator, the power will go out, and you’re going to fall. Then everything will go haywire.

You’ll experience a different adventure each time. There are six different songs and experiences. The attraction will be high energy, fast and chaotic. While exiting the ride, you’ll hear some of the music from the soundtrack in The Guardians of the Galaxy, and you’ll also hear the sounds of some creatures running through the building.

Finally, you will enter the warehouse after you’ve let The Guardians and the creatures lose. Everything is in chaos. The Collector has his cast members selling all of the collectibles. Everything must go! The Collector is preoccupied with everything on the lose, and you’ll hear him saying things like, “Where are my collectibles?” In the warehouse, you can purchase things like awesome mix tape shirts, and amazing Mission Breakout merchandise.

Take your children to see the new film “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” in theaters on May 5th, and then bring them to ride the new attraction Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! at Disney California Adventure Park when it opens on May 27th!!
