Disneyland Resort in California has announced confirmed the opening plans for its new attraction. Avengers Campus, the new Marvel-themed land inside of Disney California Adventure park, will be opening on June 4.
Disneyland itself re-opens on April 30 so this will allow visitor numbers to climb before the new attraction is unveiled to the public.
The first main area inside Avengers Campus is the Worldwide Engineering Brigade – known as WEB. The clue is in the title here, as this will be where Web Slingers: A Spider-Man Adventure will be. Tom Holland reprises his role as Spider-Man and according to the blurb the ride:
“…invites you to put your web-slinging skills to the test and experience what it’s like to have powers alongside Spider-Man – a feat accomplished with innovative technology adapted specifically for this attraction.”
Also in the same area is Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! This is the rethemed Twilight Zone Tower Of Terror drop ride that has been open since 2017. In this ride, you work with Rocket Racoon as he fights to free the rest of the Guardians Of The Galaxy from the Collector’s clutches.
As usual for Disney, food and merchandise will also feature with the Ant-Man and the Wasp-inspired Pym Test Kitchen, where Pym Particles are used to create giant portions. For grownups, there is also a bar – quite a rare thing in Disney parks, the Pym Tasting Lab. Here you can sample experimental cocktail experiments and oversized beers. So a bit like last Saturday then?
There will be a sizable retail outlet, which to much disappointment cannot be confirmed as being based on a Wakandan bazaar. Live characters appearing in the area will include Iron Man, Captain Marvel, Black Panther, the Dora Milaje, Black Widow, Ant-Man and The Wasp, the Guardians of the Galaxy, Thor, and Loki. There are rumors that stunt performers and acrobats will be putting in occasional appearances in the skies above Avengers Campus as Spider-Man.
This will not be coming to Walt Disney World in Florida, unfortunately. East of the Mississippi the theme park rights to the Marvel characters sits with Universal, who have Marvel Island at Universal Islands of Adventure at the Universal Resort in Orlando.
