The Disneyland Resort this morning announced a summer opening for its Avengers Campus at Disney California Adventure. It's a Christmas present for theme park and Marvel fans, who had been wondering just when in 2020 the new superhero-themed land would debut.
The first phase of Avengers Campus will feature a new ride, restaurant, and meet and greets with select Marvel characters. We already featured Avengers Campus on our All aboard the 2020 Hype Train series, focusing on its still-as-yet-unnamed Spider-Man ride, which will be an interactive dark ride using Ninjago-like hand motion technology to enable riders to sling webs to capture runaway Spiderbots in a training exercise.
The conceit of the land is that the Avengers are recruiting you and other guests to help them through the Worldwide Engineering Brigade. (Yeah, I'll let you work out that acronym.) The land's restaurant will be Pym Test Kitchen, where "Pym Technologies is using the latest innovations to grow and shrink food at this eatery." Meet and greets in the land will include "Black Widow, Ant-Man and The Wasp, Doctor Strange, the Guardians of the Galaxy, Super Heroes from Wakanda and Asgard, and Iron Man."
Park officials also have talked of a Doctor Strange mystic arts training show in the land, too.
Phase two (opening date yet to be announced) will bring a second new attraction, themed to a Quinjet ride to Wakanda for an epic battle. Additional Avengers Campus lands also will be opening at Walt Disney Studios Paris and Hong Kong Disneyland.
