Recently, Walt Disney Imagineering and the creative team at Marvel Studios, are teaming up to produce a new themed attraction at Disney California Adventure, featuring the casts of Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy." However, in order to create this immersive experience, one must come with a price. And that price is removing one of Disney's most iconic attractions: The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror.
"Tower of Terror", for short, is a vertical-drop dark attraction, inspired by the classic 1959 series with the same name, which is produced under CBS and created by legendary storyteller Rod Serling. The original Tower of Terror opened in 1994 at Walt Disney World in Florida and its second incarnation at Disneyland Resort in 2004. While rumors has spread about the possible future for the Tower, people are still enjoying the iconic attraction without any indication of age, nor boredom. Having to replace an iconic attraction such as "The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror" with a Marvel-themed attraction, would be blasphemous against Disney fans, historians, Marvel fanatics and, most importantly, fans of Rod Serling and the original Twilight Zone TV series. While this doesn't applied to Florida's TOT, yet, fans of California's version wouldn't be able to spend enough money to travel all the way to Florida, just to witness one of the only incarnations of the iconic attractions in America, still sitting in existence.
Please, DO NOT let the Imagineers continue their actions into removing a beloved attraction that won the hearts of millions since 2004.

People are angered and will receive immediate actions if you replace the iconic attraction, The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror for "Guardians of the Galaxy- Mission: Breakout." As of now, several dislikes are taking place in the GotG ride announcement on YouTube, and several people are spreading the word of hate and petition through Facebook, YouTube and Twitter. Not everyone can go to Florida, if you continue to progress your plans into removing the iconic attraction. To avoid extensive controversy, I implore you to listen to the customers, this time. Thank You. #SaveTheTower
