It was the last chance to drop for the Tower of Terror before it disappeared forever into the Twilight Zone of yesterland and many fans dropped in at Disney California Adventure on Monday to take a final ride. Caitlyn McNulty drove in from Las Vegas for the last day. “I wouldn’t miss the funeral of my favorite ride,” she said.
The ride is getting a makeover to a more sci/fi fantasy theme. When it reopens this summer, it will be called “Guardians of the Galaxy - Mission Breakout!” It will feature characters from the Marvel movie series and a whole new look. The makeover was announced last summer by Marvel’s producer Kevin Feige at the San Diego Comic-Con, and is the first ride at the Disneyland Resort based on a movie from the Marvel Comics universe. It will retain the elevator-drop that has been a key part of Tower of Terror.
