Goodbye Twilight Zone, hello Guardians of the Galaxy.

At Comic-Con in San Diego, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige announced Disney is revamping its popular California Adventure elevator drop ride, The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror. The ride, which sends thrill seekers plummeting down several stories, will close in January and reopen in the summer of 2017 with a new theme: Guardians of the Galaxy. Disney bought Marvel Entertainment in 2009 for $4 billion, and fans have predicted that the attraction will be part of a new Marvel land at the Anaheim theme park, the Los Angeles Times reports.
Fans of the ride in its original form are not happy with the plan, and have let Disney know about their anger on Twitter and by launching a Change.org petition. One person even offered up another tower to be sacrificed instead:
