If you have wondering why Star Wars has gotten an attraction before Marvel’s Avengers which Disney has owned for much longer, well, wonder no more because, your favorite superheroes-themed attractions are already in the pipeline. Announced at the D23 Expo over the weekend, the first on the table is the Avengers Campus set to open its doors in 2020 at Disney California Adventure Park.
The key address at Avengers Campus is set at the Worldwide Engineering Brigade, AKA WEB, which is also where the new Spider-Man experience, a ride-through attraction, will be located. Over at WEB, guests will get to sling webs like the superhero web slinger on “Web Slinger” vehicle and along the way, help Spidey collect “Spider-Bots that have run amok.”
There is also a Pym-themed eatery, aptly named Pym Test Kitchen. Speaking of Pym, expect to bumped into Ant-Man and The Wasp and other superheroes like Black Widow, Doctor Strange, the Guardians of the Galaxy, plus characters from Wakanda, Asgard and Iron Man. A replica of the Avengers HQ rooftop, which will open in phase two, is also in the mix.
“This building, which will open in phase two, will become the future entrance to a brand-new E-Ticket attraction where you will step on board a Quinjet and fly alongside the Avengers in an epic adventure to Wakanda and beyond! You will team up alongside the Avengers in a battle to save our world against one of the most powerful villains they have ever faced. Imagineers are hard at work conceiving an all-new innovative ride system to put you in the middle of this action.”
Meanwhile, over at the Walt Disney World Resort’s World Discovery neighborhood in Epcot, there will be a Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind ride. It will be the first reverse launch “into space” and features a “never-before-seen” storytelling thrill ride that rotates to focus on the action.
Finally, in Paris next Summer, you will find Disney’s Hotel New York – The Art of Marvel. It is a hotel that celebrates 80 years of Marvel art and artists, featuring over 300 curated works of art on display. Expect rooms to include one-of-a-kind themed suites, showcasing iconic superheroes like Spider-Man and more.
