Deadpool Creator Rob Liefeld Would Love More X-Men Theme Park Attractions

Rob Liefeld RideThe new Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: Breakout! attraction at Disney California Adventure Park in Anaheim, CA just opened last weekend and has already amassed lines lasting 5 hours on average. The success of this new attraction has sparked excitement from  Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld – who wants to see some theme park attractions based on the X-Men characters.

On his official Twitter account, Liefeld expressed his happiness that Marvel’s mainstream appeal has expanded from the big screen to Disney theme parks:

Liefeld also discussed that he would love to see some theme park attraction featuring the X-Men. But given the fact that FOX has the rights to those characters for both film and television, creating attractions featuring the mutants may be difficult:

Interestingly enough, there is an X-Men attraction at Universal’s Islands of Adventure Park in Orlando, FL. The attraction is Storm Force Accelatron – which is a tea cup-style spinner attraction. Unfortunately, that’s as far as it goes for mutant-based theme park rides.

If you were to ask me, the ideal Deadpool attraction would be similar to The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man, which is also located at Universal’s Islands of Adventure Park. The Spider-Man attraction has been widely-regarded as one of the most impressive theme park attractions in the world due to the technological innovations as well as the incredible use of Spidey and his rogue’s gallery of villains.

Imagine a Deadpool attraction with similar sensibilities. I can already envision seeing him engage with guests as they embark on an adventure with him that eventually goes horribly wrong but would you like to see more theme park attractions featuring X-Men characters? If so, what kinds of attractions would you like to see? Sound off in the comments below.

Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: Breakout! is now open at Disney California Adventure Park.
