It’s almost time to suit up.
Avengers will assemble at the all-new interactive Marvel-themed land: Avenger Campus on June 4—yes, this year. Reservations will be required and it’s only open to California residents, in line with state guidelines. Disney initially planned to complete the massive superhero expansion by July 18, 2020, but as with everything last year, the opening date was been moved out. But the wait is finally over.
“We are so excited to soon welcome our guests to Avengers Campus, the first land dedicated to Super Heroes at Disney California Adventure Park,” said Disneyland Resort’s president Ken Potrock. “Guests of all ages can find their powers and our cast members will unite to create these special moments and memories.”
The next generation of superheroes will be able to train and get in on the action alongside their favorite Super Heroes, which includes heroic escapades, tasting foods from across the galaxy at Pym Test Kitchen and slinging webs with Spidey. It will be an explosive experience that uses technology, science and interactive features to turn Marvel fantasy into an epic reality.
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.
Encounters 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.
Every hero (or hero-to-be) needs to refuel after a long day of saving the world. Luckily, Ant-Man and Wasp have have been cooking up a storm at Pym Test Kitchen, using Pym Particles to grow and shrink just about everything. You’ll be trying out weird and wonderful creations fresh out the Quantum Tunnel. Expect anything from ranging from giant, shareable bites to microscopic nibbles, along with some really inventive entrees.
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.
