Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! to Feature Rockin’ Soundtrack


Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! will debut at Disney California Adventure Park this summer complete with a rocking soundtrack.  In addition to experiencing one of six randomized ascend-and drop scenarios, guests will also hear an awesome playlist of vintage songs from the 60s, 70s, and 80s.

From Disney:

Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! launches guests into a chaotic and hilarious adventure filled with exhilarating visual and sound effects. They will assist Rocket, one of the most unusual heroes, as he leads the escape mission. An “awesome mix” of songs, inspired by the films’ soundtracks, adds to the epic action.

  • “Hit Me With Your Best Shot” by Pat Benatar (1980)
  • “Give Up The Funk” by Parliament (1975)
  • “Born To Be Wild” by Steppenwolf (1968)
  • “I Want You Back” by The Jackson 5 (1969)
  • “Free Ride” by The Edgar Winters Group (1973)
  • “Burning Love” by Elvis Presley (1972)

Each song accompanies a different version of the escape scenario, with a corresponding ride profile and visuals.

Each of these songs was hand picked by the Walt Disney Imagineering team from a list of over 100 high-energy tunes.

“A strong identifiable back beat and a memorable hook were key points,” said John Dennis, executive creative director of music with Walt Disney Imagineering. “For example, ‘Free Ride’ has an iconic guitar hook to open the song, a killer bass line in the verse and, in the chorus, the backing vocals have this great ascending line. The rock ‘n’ roll music playing on board the ride is just plain fun. The songs, each paired with its own ride profile, give us six unique experiences.”

Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! officially opens May 27, 2017 at Disney California Adventure at Disneyland Resort.
