A short time ago in a galaxy not so far away ...
A fierce challenge, known as MiceChat's Gumball Rally, loomed upon Disneyland in the year 2012. Hundreds of Disneyland enthusiast swarmed to Anaheim's beloved theme park to compete in this exalted competition, threatening the very fabric of Disneyland's normal operating hours.
Recognizing this threat, four UC Irvine graduates formed a superhero team to compete in the Gumball Rally in order to return normalcy to the Disneyland park. By combining the first letters of each of their names, this heroic team became known as ATAK!
. Team ATAK!
recognized the danger that threatened the Disneyland park and came up with a plan to conquer and win in the Gumball Rally -- by 'attacking' every attraction in the most effective and efficient way.
fought fiercely and valiantly in MiceChat's Gumball Rally but the loss was not without its consequences. In Adventureland, the heroic team entered the Temple of the Forbidden Eye with the intention to face the great Mara. Unbeknownst to them, Mara set an elaborate, rolling boulder trap for those foolish enough to enter the temple. Team ATAK!
mistakenly gazed into the eyes of the idol as they entered the Chamber of Destiny and tripped Mara's trap. Recognizing the immediate danger of elimination from the competition, team ATAK!
decided to flee the temple in order to avoid being forever entombed inside. Their action caused an almost full day closure for the attraction. Humiliated for causing the closure, team ATAK!
began feeling angry and hate towards the Indiana Jones Adventure attraction which quickly led the superhero team to the dark side. Fueled by their quest for vengeance, team ATAK!
began dabbling in the dark side of the force in order to craft a better, and more destructive plan.
Once again, the Gumball Rally has returned to the Disneyland Resort. Because of ATAK!
's failure to return normalcy to Disneyland, the Gumball Rally now threatens both Disneyland AND Disney California Adventure Park this year. Will team ATAK!
's fall to the dark side give them the edge against the competition? Will team ATAK!
's new plan cause chaos and utter destruction in the Disney Parks? Will team ATAK!
be successful in their ultimate quest for vengeance?
