The Disneyland Resort this morning revealed the opening date for its new Marvel-themed Avengers Campus at Disney California Adventure, as well as the name for its anchor Spider-Man ride.
Avengers Campus will open on July 18, 2020 and its new ride will be called WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure.
"A blend of physical, fully dimensional sets and virtual environments will take recruits on this interactive escapade, which includes animation, moving props and special effects," Disney said in its press release.
"We’re going to give you super powers," Brent Strong, executive creative director at Walt Disney Imagineering, said. "There’s not a kid who has read a comic or watched a TV show or a movie who hasn’t walked away wishing they could sling webs, and we’re going to make that happen for every single guest. The new technology can render a virtual web coming directly out of your wrist and into that world without touching an interface. It’s as close to being Spider-Man as you can get."
Actor Tom Holland will reprise his role as Spider-Man for the ride, in which riders will have to " help capture the out-of-control Spider-Bots before they wreak havoc on the Campus."
As previously revealed by Disney, the word "Web" in that name - and throughout Avengers Campus - doesn't just refer to the stuff Spidey shoots from his wrists. It stands for "Worldwide Engineering Brigade" - "a workshop of young engineers who specialize in developing innovative technologies to equip and empower a new generation of Super Heroes," in Disney's backstory for the land.
The idea is that this land very much is a campus, a place for learning and instruction, as the Avengers look to recruit and train that new generation of super heroes - in other words, you.
In addition to the Spider-Man ride, the land will include a new restaurant, Pym Test Kitchen, and an interactive Doctor Strange stage show in the Sanctum. Marvel characters will appear at the Avengers Headquarters, and as Disney previously announced, Spider-Man will fly over the land in the evenings.
