Disney's 'Guardians of the Galaxy' Ride Attracted Some Huge Crowds
Disneyland Resort
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 spent its first two weekends at the top of the box office, so it's no surprise that the new ride at Disney's California Adventure, Guardians of the Galaxy - Mission: Breakout! also brought in some big numbers.

Having just opened this weekend, the ride set out to recreate the sci-fi/comedy/70's music showcase in real life, on the site of the former Twilight Zone Tower of Terror:



The Saturday opening was large enough that lines apparently snaked around the entire park, as numerous people posted wait times and lines all over social media. Nobody really seemed upset about it, because they were still about to ride a brand new GotG attraction. But there's some dedication required for anyone willing to wait over five hours, on the other side of California Adventure.





The ride is set inside The Collector's fortress, if you remember Benico del Toro's flamboyant villain from the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie. In a story that's not technically canon with the MCU, the Collector has captured all the Guardians (Chris Pratt and the gang all reprise their roles), and you, the intrepid young theme park attendee, have to help Rocket (Bradley Cooper) break them all out, all while music like Pat Benatar's "Hit Me With Your Best Shot" or "Give Up The Funk" by Parliament blares in the background - there are several songs on rotation. 

But since The Collector is the main villain, the building is full of glass cases containing Marvel easter eggs he's gathered up, including a large photo of the himself with Jeff Goldblum's Grandmaster, who debuts in Thor: Ragarok later this year. 





Since the only Mission Breakout is currently in Disneyland Resorts in California, it might be difficult to get there unless you were planning a Disneyland trip anyways. But if you can't make it, you could always go see Vol. 2 again, or just be content with this footage of a reporter freaking out during the ride.
