Disney’s California Adventure will be ready to host fans of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 this May with the brand new ride, Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! The film opens on May 5 with the ride following on May 27. The opening of the new GotG ride will kick off Disney’s “Summer of Heroes” at California Adventure, which will run through September 10.

This new adventure blasts you straight into the Guardians of the Galaxy story for the first time ever, alongside characters from the blockbuster films and comics. As you help Rocket bust his pals out of the Collector’s Fortress, you will experience randomized ride experiences complete with all-new visual and audio effects and music inspired by the popular film soundtracks. You never know which adventure you will get!

Like Star Tours over in Disneyland’s Tomorrowland, this is an attraction that fans will want to ride several times to try and experience each adventure. It’s great to see that characters from the comics will be present along with the obvious inclusion of the film characters. That should set each experience up with its own set of Easter eggs for eagle-eyed fans to spot.

For more on the “Summer of Heroes,” see the announcement below.

There will be even more ways to step into Super Hero stories with Summer of Heroes, May 27 through September 10. Answer the call for this limited-time celebration as you join the Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy for all-new epic experiences.

Summer of Heroes will launch these new, year-round experiences:

  • 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. Gamora may prefer to stand back and observe, but everyone else is bound to get in the groove and show off their moves during this awesome rock ‘n’ roll bash!
  • Super Hero Encounters – For the first time, citizens of Earth will come face-to-face with Groot, one of the Guardians of the Galaxy! You can also step up to meet the First Avenger, Captain America, along with everyone’s favorite web slinger, your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.

And for a limited time, step up to the challenge with new adventures during Summer of Heroes:

  • Avengers Training Initiative – Black Widow and Hawkeye assemble young recruits for a series of tests to see if they have what it takes to join the ranks of the Avengers.
  • Heroic Encounter: Black Widow – Black Widow will arrive on the scene several times throughout the day in an armored Avengers vehicle for her heroic encounter with park guests.
  • Grab a Piece (or Bite) of the Action – All that heroism making you hungry? Want a token as proof of your adventures when you get home? Special themed merchandise and food will be available throughout Hollywood Land.
