OC THEME PARKS BRING IN SUMMER FUN

May 27 will be a good day for theme park lovers as they’ll have their chance to mingle with Marvel superheroes and characters from the Wild West.

New attraction Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT!, including multiple ride experiences and music inspired by the movies’ soundtracks, opens that day at Disney California Adventure Park. Also starting May 27, guests will get the chance to mingle with superheroes from the “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “The Avengers” movies as part of Summer of Heroes.

When you’re finished rubbing shoulders with Marvel characters, head over to Knott’s Berry Farm’s Ghost Town Alive! experience, which returns to the park starting May 27 and runs through Sept. 4. With new storylines, characters and activities, guests can immerse themselves as part of the Wild West action set in the town of Calico.

“Ghost Town Alive! has taken Knott’s summer entertainment and the idea of ‘playing in a theme park’ to a whole new level,” said Knott’s Berry Farm General Manager Jon Storbeck in a press release. “Guests of all ages will have the opportunity to not just interact with the citizens of Calico, but will have the ability to influence how the story takes shape.”
