Featuring characters from the blockbuster films, Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! offers a new epic new adventure combining the familiar, breathtaking free-fall sensation with all-new visual and audio effects, including music inspired by the popular Guardians of the Galaxy film soundtrack. Guests will experience a variety of randomized ride experiences, so you never know which adventure you will get!
Each time guests board a gantry lift to rescue the Guardians from The Collector’s Fortress, they will experience one of the six randomized scenarios created for the attraction and one of the following songs:
“Hit Me With Your Best Shot” by Pat Benatar (1980)
“Give Up The Funk” by Parliament (1975)
“Born To Be Wild” by Steppenwolf (1968)
“I Want You Back” by The Jackson 5 (1969)
“Free Ride” by The Edgar Winters Group (1973)
“Burning Love” by Elvis Presley (1972)
“A strong identifiable rhythm and a memorable hook were key points,” says John Dennis, Executive Creative Director, Walt Disney Imagineering. “For example, ‘Free Ride’ has an iconic guitar hook, a killer bass line in the verse and, in the chorus, the backing vocals have a great ascending line. The rock n roll music playing on board the ride is just plain fun. The songs, each paired with its own ride profile, give us six unique experiences.”
The attraction will also feature new music from film composer Tyler Bates.
