Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout isn’t actually opening in Disneyland until May 27th, but Disney is in full on hype mode for the ride, and has released the soundtrack for the ride and even has a tie in comic out this week.
The ride (briefly mentioned way back in 2016, October, and March) will have six songs accompanying six different ride scenarios, giving riders a unique and different ride experience each time. Looking at the soundtrack below I think it looks like a good mix of music from the 60’s through to the 80’s:
- 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)
The ride will still be a drop ride such as the former Tower of Terror, so you’ll still get a beautiful view of Disney’s California Adventure. The picture above and the one below are from the experience. They were quite recently dropped, and frankly I’m excited to see the final product in person, I’ve also dragged out preview images of the comic, too, after this picture.
Here’s the preview pages from Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout #1 by Christopher Hastings, Edgar Salazar, Allen Martinez, Andrew Crossley, and VC’s Clayton Cowles with covers by Ron Lim & Israel Silva, plus Bobby Rubio. The comic is out this week on general release and digital to coincide with the ride’s opening at the end of the month.
