Rumors are swirling that Disney is planning to overhaul The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror at Disneyland Resort’s California Adventure park into a Guardians of the Galaxy ride.
MiceAge , a source of insider theme park information, is reporting that Disney will do away with the Twilight Zone connection and storyline and give the attraction a Guardians of the Galaxy makeover, focusing on The Collector from the Marvel film.
Allegedly, the plan is to change the entire interior and exterior of the ride into a story about the Guardians and the Collector, with an aim to open it in May 2017 along with the release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
Until Disney confirms this, though, nothing is definite. However, it makes sense. Disney has owned Marvel for years now and the generation of Twilight Zone fans has gotten older, so the younger generation could begin to lose appeal for the ride without an upgraded theme.
Odds are the entertainment giant wouldn’t completely do away with the tower’s theme, but what do you think?
