Disneyland’s Tower of Terror making way for ‘Guardians’ ride

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Disney’s decision to remake the popular “Twilight Zone Tower of Terror” ride at Disneyland’s California Adventure into a “Guardians of the Galaxy” themed attraction isn’t sitting well with fans.

The plan was greeted with boos as soon as it was announced to fans at Comic-Con in San Diego in July, and the outrage has been simmering since. Negative votes are outpacing positive ones by a 3-to-1 margin on a YouTube video describing the project. A Slate article on the plan to close the ride in January described it as “a national tragedy.”

The ride opened in 2004 and treats thrill-seekers to a freefall plunge down a mock hotel’s elevator shaft.

Disney hasn’t announced any changes to a sister attraction at Walt Disney World in Florida.
