The elevators may be staying down for good for The Tower of Terror at Disney California Adventure.
Rumors have been swirling that The Tower of Terror ride will be closing down and reopening as Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy ride — and it looks like it’s actually going to happen!
Tower of Terror opened in Disney California Adventure in May 2004, and has been a park-goer favorite over the last ten years.
Now, with the success of Guardians of the Galaxy, Disney — who also owns Marvel — wants to re-theme The Tower of Terror from The Twilight Zone to the galactic misfit group who protects the universe.
According to the reliable Disney fan-site MiceChat the rumor is true.
Along with the Guardians of the Galaxy, the theme will also surround the Collector character from the movie and comic books.
The site also reports the ride will be closing down this Fall in order to have it up and running Guardians style by May 2017.
