Disney's California Adventure theme park announced they'll be kicking off a "Summer of Heroes" with the opening of the Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout! ride on May 27.
The revamped tower will blast visitors into the "Guardians of the Galaxy" story alongside characters from the films and comics beginning May 27. While no one's necessarily been harping on it yet, one of the biggest mistakes that Marvel executives will admit to with their first go around of Guardians of the Galaxy is not foreseeing the appeal of Baby Groot.
