Even in Disneyland, some theme park rides can just scare the crap out of people, no matter how matter how many Disney paraphernalia surrounds them. Guardians of the Galaxy - Mission: BREAKOUT! is the newest attraction at Disney's California Adventure Park, and recently opened its doors to the masses. While the ride is filled to the brim with delicious eastereggs, that doesn't make the ride part of it any less frightening, as one reporter learned for himself. Immediately brighten your day by watching this simple news piece in which a reporter loses it on camera.
KTLA 5 was just one of the lucky news organizations who got to try out the latest ride from Disneyland: Guardians of the Galaxy - Mission: BREAKOUT! The outlet sent two of their own to try out the ride and, of course, film their reaction on the ride itself. One of these men, Sam Rubin, is clearly not a ride guy, as he quickly grasps his colleague in terror the second the ride drops and continues to do so until it's all finally over. It seems a little weird that the Imagineers didn't provide anything to clutch with your hands, but all the more reason to raise them in the air! Everything about this is pretty great, from Sam never quite opening his eyes, to his fellow reporters laughing their asses off back at the anchor desk.
Also not having a great time: that kid right behind Sam Rubin. My dude is not enjoying the freefall part as much as some of the other patrons.
For those who may not be up on their Disneyland theme park news, what was formerly the Tower of Terror has been transformed into a Guardians of the Galaxy ride -- which by all accounts sounds extremely fun. Chris Pratt, Bradley Cooper, Zoe Saldana and the rest of the cast of the MCU movie reprise their roles for the ride, which follows the story of Rocket needing your help to free the rest of the Guardians from The Collector's twisted collection. The whole attraction is a Marvel fanboys dream, with tons of easter eggs to find while you wait in line. The actual ride is essentially a huge elevator that takes you up and then drops you down repeatedly. Not of the easiest of rides for some, surely, but the six different rock songs and footage variations can help you get through it.
Perhaps Sam Rubin would better enjoy Guardians of the Galaxy when he has both feet planted firmly on the ground. The sequel, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, is currently in theaters right now and we promise there are no big drops at all in the film.
