This weekend, Guardians of the Galaxy – Monsters After Dark returned at Disney California Adventure. The ride is a Halloween holiday overlay of Mission Breakout, which opened at the resort in 2017 and is still available to guests during the day. Starting at 5pm, guests can experience this new ride instead, a sequel to the daytime version.

Overall, Monsters After Dark is a really fun overlay that basically gives you a seventh (yeah, seventh) ride profile for the attraction. The completely unique pre-shows and lighting make this more special and the fact that it is a seamless sequel to the daytime version is sheer brilliance. The song during the ride is a little silly as it feels pretty basic and just had the lyrics “Monsters After Dark” over and over again, but this overlay will undoubtedly be enjoyed just as much as the daytime version.

Guardians of the Galaxy – Monsters After Dark is now open from 5pm to park close nightly during HalloweenTime at the Disneyland Resort.

  • It is not a seventh ride profile at all. Monsters After Dark uses the identical drop sequence from “Born to be Wild.”

      • Hi Tom,

        You absolutely do go to the power control room. The doors simply do not open. The drop profile, including the floors it travels to do not change in any way. I can share a YouTube link that proves this without a doubt if comments allow links here.
