Disney makeover for Tower of Terror causes fan freak-out on social media

Disney makeover for Tower of Terror causes fan freak-out on social media

Tower of Terror, the beloved vertiginous elevator drop at Disney’s California Adventure, will cease to terrify thrill seekers in early January so that it can become a new “Guardians of the Galaxy” attraction that is set to open in summer 2017. But some Disney fans have expressed outrage after Saturday’s announcement, suggesting that the decision to overhaul and rebrand the popular ride is tantamount to sacrilege.

The new ride will mark the first time that Disney has incorporated characters from its Marvel superhero universe at the theme park. Disney said that “Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: Breakout!” will open at the Anaheim park but didn’t say what would happen to the Tower of Terror at its Hollywood Studios park in Orlando.
