The scaffolding around most of Guardians of the Galaxy Mission: BREAKOUT has finally been torn down giving guests a look at the upcoming revamp of the classic Tower of Terror attraction.
And, oh boy, Disney Twitter is having losing their collective mind with hot-take anger right now. At least this is something to pull the vitriolic attention away from Pandora for once?
Regardless, the Mission: BREAKOUT (okay, enough with the caps from here on out) tower decorations are now on full display in California and very easy to see from both parks. The striking color scheme and overly-busy pipework on the exterior of the tower certainly catch your eye and provide a completely different view than the Hollywood Tower Hotel ever did. Of course, any change for Disney Twitter is a bad thing and the Guardian’s Tower is being hailed as basically worse than Hitler. Because of course. Take a look below and let me know what you think.

Truthfully, I don’t think it looks that awful. Sure, it’s gaudy as hell and looks extremely out of place in the Hollywood section of the park, but it’s themed to The Collector and he’s just a bit gaudy. Plus, as the first part of the rumored “Marvel Land” expansion, eventually I’m sure this won’t look any more out of place than The Matterhorn on the edge of Tomorrowland.
As always, the outcry seems to come from a self-obsessed idea of entitlement mixed with a toxic level of nostalgia all before the actual thing the anger is directed towards is experienced, let alone actually complete. I, for one, am not a huge fan of the Guardians franchise and am loathe to lose a Tower of Terror, but I’m giving this a fair shot.
I mean, it can’t be worse than a ride based on Jimmy Fallon, right?
Now, go have a day!
