One of the most popular attractions at Disney California Adventure Park is about to undergo a major makeover to incorporate Disney’s stockpile of superhero characters.

Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, an elevator-drop ride based on the old “Twilight Zone” television show, will close for good in January to be remade as an attraction based on Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” superheros.

Walt Disney Co. bought Marvel Entertainment Inc. in 2009 for $4 billion but had yet to inject many of the Marvel characters into the Anaheim theme parks. The ride will reopen next summer.

The move to re-create the Tower of Terror into a Guardians of the Galaxy attraction has been rumored on Disney fan blog sites for months but the Burbank-based entertainment giant has refused to comment on the speculation.
