Peek inside Disneyland’s new Marvel-themed attraction

Disneyland has revealed the first glimpses of its newest attraction, Avengers Campus, which is based on the popular Marvel franchise. The California theme park, which has been shuttered for over a year due to the coronavirus pandemic, is set to reopen by the end of April. Located at the Disney California Adventure Park, Avengers Campus officially opens to the public on June 4.

Visitors will be able to “live out your superhero dreams with the Avengers and their allies,” at the sprawling area which includes rides, locales and food. “Here, our cast members will unite to help guests of all ages find their super powers and create special memories,” said Ken Potrock, president of Disneyland Resort, in a statement to the media. Among the key attractions is the Worldwide Engineering Brigade, aka WEB, that’s centred around SpiderMan. It will feature Web Slingers: A Spider-Man Adventure, the first Disneyland ride featuring the superhero.

Another zone will be dedicated to Doctor Strange who will “train recruits in the mystic arts by bringing this ancient sanctum to life with powerful spells.” Also part of the Avengers Campus is the Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission Breakout!, which debuted in 2017. The attraction features six separate storylines, free-fall drop sequences and music inspired by the soundtrack of the films. 

The Pym Test Kitchen will offer Ant-Man and the Wasp-themed food, such as the “Impossible™ plant-based micro meatballs” and other “shareable bites”. Food cart, Shawarma Palace, pays further fan service as a nod to a running joke in the Avengers franchise. The beverage section will cater to adults as well, with craft beer and signature “Pym Particle” cocktails.

As with popular Disney characters, such as Cinderella or Goofy, fans can expect to interact with Avengers superheroes such as Iron Man, Black Panther, Thor, Loki and the Guardians of the Galaxy around the campus. You might even spot Spider-Man swoop over the theme park. There’ll also be plenty of Avengers-themed merchandise to purchase as mementos, including the interactive, remote-controlled Spider-Bots, similar to the ones featured at the Web Slingers attraction; figurines, clothing and other gear.
