One of Marvel’s most interesting announcements at its San Diego Comic-Con panel wasn’t actually a movie — instead, it was about a new Disney park experience focused on Guardians of the Galaxy.

Marvel announced Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout at its San Diego Comic-Con panel in Hall H, set to open the summer of 2017 at Disney California Adventure park. Mission Outbreak is described as an immersive experience designed to throw fans into the world of Guardians of the Galaxy.

Here’s Marvel’s official description for the exhibit:

Debuting in summer 2017, Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! will take Disney California Adventure park guests through the fortress-like museum of the mysterious Collector, who is keeping his newest acquisitions, the Guardians of the Galaxy, as prisoners. Guests will board a gantry lift which launches them into a daring adventure as they join Rocket Raccoon in an attempt to set free his fellow Guardians. The new attraction will transform the structure currently housing The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror™ into an epic new adventure, enhancing the breathtaking free fall sensation with new visual and audio effects to create a variety of ride experiences. Guests will experience multiple, random and unique ride profiles in which the rise and fall of the gantry lift rocks to the beat of music inspired by the film’s popular soundtrack.
