New warning signage has been installed at the load area for Guardians of the Galaxy — Mission: BREAKOUT! at Disney California Adventure to combat a new TikTok trend which flouts safety rules in favor of extra thrill.
The new signage was installed today, and is prompted by a recent TikTok trend encouraging riders to improperly secure their seatbelts, according to the Orange County Register.
A diagram of the seatbelt sits at the center of the sign, which reads “Keep seat belt securely fastened and tight against the waist. Failure to follow instructions may result in being asked to leave the park.”
It’s extremely dangerous to not secure your restraint on any attraction, and it puts both your life and those of your fellow riders at risk, particularly on thrill rides like this. Always follow the instructions of Cast Members and warning signage at attractions.
This of course isn’t the first incidents we’ve seen as a result of the popular short-form video app. Earlier this month we spotted guests chowing down on bread bowls on Incredicoaster and drinking Splash Mountain water, last month a guest on TikTok snuck a firework into Disneyland for her birthday, and even at Walt Disney World a woman was spotted flashing her breasts at guests on the Disney Skyliner for TikTok.
Guardians of the Galaxy — Mission: BREAKOUT! opened in 2017 as an overhaul of The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror drop tower attraction, based on the popular Marvel franchise. Guests fall more than thirteen stories and experience moments of weightlessness while trying to break the Guardians of the Galaxy out of an eccentric collector’s museum/prison to the tune of classic ’70s and ’80s hits.
