If you paid attention to #DisneyTwitter yesterday you would have noticed a very strange rumor going around. One that uses the impending renewal for the "Twilight Zone" rights and makes a really crazy idea, even by Disney standards.
That rumor was a Guardians of the Galaxy makeover for Tower of Terror.
While we aren't exactly opposed to a Guardians of the Galaxy ride, and we aren't really even opposed to using an existing ride to pull it off, there are a LOT of better choices than Tower of Terror. It would take the best ride at Walt Disney World (in Gregg's opinion) and make it into one of the worst.
So we figured, why not have some fun with this rumor and point out a few existing rides that would be a MUCH better fit for the Guardians of the Galaxy theme.
Some of them obviously took a bit more thought than others, some of the photoshop work below isn't exactly the best, but hey, we're just having fun here anyway.
#6 - Guardians of the Galaxy Track: Create your own spaceship and zoom it around "Knowhere" all while avoiding The Collector.
#5 - Guardians of the Galaxy: The Ride: Using the existing Mission Space ride fly an emergency mission to Xandar to rescue the Nova Corp.
#4 - Guardians Mountain: The first Space Mountain Layover at the Magic Kingdom using all new technology to fly through space with the Guardians of the Galaxy
#3 - Guardians of the Galaxy Coaster starring Blue Swede: A perfect mix of Guardians of the Galaxy and the awesome soundtrack as you fly through space with Star Lord and his Awesome Mix. We bet you get "hooked on a feeling".
#2 - The Land with Groot: Learn about science and nature with everybody's favorite walking, talking tree. You've never learned more in 3 words as you will on these adventures.
#1 - Rocket's Great Escape: Break out of the Kyln with Rocket at the lead. Be sure you have your extra leg.
So what do you think? Would you ride any (or all) of these over a Tower of Terror re-do?
If you have any other ideas be sure to post them below.
