Avengers, assemble!

Have you ever dreamed of stepping into the star-spangled suits of your favorite superheroes? Disney is letting fans all over the globe experience the Marvel Universe firsthand with its upcoming Avengers Campus. This Marvel-inspired theme park, announced during D23 Expo last August 2019, will have rides and attractions featuring all your favorite heroes.

This amusement park won’t be like any other. The Avengers Campus is coming to three different Disney Parks all over the world: in California, Paris, and Hong Kong. These locations will follow one big story to connect them all: the Avengers are looking for new recruits. They are setting up their new headquarters and they are looking for fresh troops willing to step up and become something more. 

Are you ready to join Earth’s mightiest heroes?

World of tech wonders 

In Disney California Adventure Park and Disney Paris, visitors can check out Worldwide Engineering Brigade, a.k.a. WEB. Since Tony Stark can’t just make suits of armor for all recruits himself, he’s inspiring aspiring inventors to create their own. WEB highlights different tech from Pym Technologies, Stark Industries, and even Wakanda.

Hop into WEB’s latest invention, the Web Slinger. As you ride the attraction, you will sling webs just like Spidey to help him collect the Spider-Bots that have ran loose in the facility.

Also in the California campus is the Pym Test Kitchen where Pym Technologies is working out how to grow and shrink food with Pym Particles.

In the Marvel-themed land, visitors can pose with their favorite heroes such as Black Widow, Ant-Man and The Wasp, Doctor Strange, the Guardians of the Galaxy, Black Panther, and more. Follow them back to the iconic Avengers Headquarters where you can climb aboard a Quinjet. Buckle up because the heroes are taking you to the battlefield where they must face one of the most sinister of villains.

The new attractions add to California Adventure Park’s first Marvel ride starring the Guardians of the Galaxy.

I love you, 3000

Let’s travel across the seas to the Avengers Campus in Disneyland Paris. This campus in France will take you on a lap of luxury. Instead of the usual theme park rides, the Paris campus will offer a (renovated) Hotel New York – The Art of Marvel.

Here, guests can view historic Marvel artworks from over 50 artists from both Marvel Comics and Marvel Studios. It’s the ultimate destination for geeks who love looking at original sketches, illustrations, storyboards, comic book covers, and more.

Who’s up for living like a genius, billionaire philanthropist? The hotel offers New York-style cafes, restaurants, and bars for eats. There’s also Empire State Club rooms covered with Iron Man motifs that guests can lounge in.

Iron Man’s influence reaches all the way to Hong Kong Disneyland. Its Avengers Campus will feature an Iron Man Experience, a 3D motion attraction, and Stark Expo. 

Earlier in 2019, Disney expanded its Marvel rides with the Ant-man and The Wasp: Nano Battle in the Science and Technology Pavilion. In Nano Battle, guests give Ant-Man and The Wasp a hand in fighting off against Hydra swarm-bots.
