It’s confirmed! The highly anticipated Avengers Campus will open in 2021.
Remember the area in Disney California Adventure called A Bug’s Land? Well, if you haven’t been to the park this year you should probably know that it’s a goner and that space is currently in the works to become an interactive Marvel-themed land: Avenger Campus! Disney initially planned to complete the massive superhero expansion by July 18, 2020, but as with everything last year, the opening date has been moved out.
Until now, the official Disneyland website simply said “coming soon” with no further details. But in a company conference call, Disney confirmed that Avengers Campus is set to open later this year, according to The Disney Food Blog. Their blog has also revealed details of all the forthcoming additions, that will have all Avenger geeks standing ready.
One of the most hyped areas is the Worldwide Engineering Brigade, otherwise known as “WEB.” Upon opening, super-fans will be able to suit up and hop in the WEB Slinger, alongside the amazing Spider-Man, to help weave a web trap for rogue Spider-Bots.
Over at Hollywood Land, there’ll be a Towering Citadel filled with Taneleer Tivan’s unique collection of “fantastical fauna, relics and species from across the cosmos to earth for the very first time,” according to the blog. However, his lastest treasures happen to be none other than the Guardians of the Galaxy. Guests will join the Rockin’ Rescue Mission as they go on a thrilling adventure through a fortress featuring special effects, popular characters and free-fall drop sequences. There’ll be six different storylines to experience, so you can do this all day and never get bored.
Encounter with heroes
Any costume-clad hero zooming past you is probably headed to the gleaming Avengers Headquarters. Heroes like Black Widow, Iron Man, Captain America and Captain Marvel will be scanning the horizon after receiving reports of villains plotting a break-in.
The encounters don’t end there though; guests will traverse the mysterious ancient sanctum ruins where the Master of the Mystic Arts, Doctor Strange, awaits. Prepare to have your eyes opened to the multiverse.
If you don’t feel like you can wait to get in on all this Marvel action, you can always test out Star Wars-themed virtual rides in the meantime. Or a number of other Disney rides that are offered online.
