Avengers Campus – an entirely new land inside Disney California Adventure park dedicated to discovering, recruiting and training the next generation of Super Heroes – will open June 4 to California Residents at the Disneyland Resort!
The new Avengers Campus will be a sprawling new land that will include rides, food and locales all based on the comic book brand. The Campus’ premiere attraction is called “WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure,” which is a 3D ride with New York’s favorite webslinger.
The company calls it an “interactive escapade” that allows guests to “sling webs like Spider-Man and experience what it’s like to have super power.”
There will also be eateries, including the “Pym Test Kitchen,” which will offer Impossible plant-based meatballs as well as other foods “at unusual scales, including shareable bites, inventive-sized entrees and tiny treats,” according to Disney. (Hank Pym, for those who don’t read comics, is one of the characters who dons the Ant-Man suit, which allows for heroes to change sizes.)
There’s also many of Marvel’s popular locations for guests to explore, including an ancient sanctum with Doctor Strange and Avengers Headquarters.
Disney even said Spider-Man will do “flips 60 to 65 feet in the air” above the campus.
“We are so excited to soon welcome our guests to Avengers Campus, our first land dedicated to Super Heroes,” Ken Potrock, the president of Disneyland Resort, said in a statement. “Here, our cast members will unite to help guests of all ages find their super powers and create special memories.”
The opening of “Avengers Campus” is a big moment for Disney and even a bigger moment for its parks and resort division.
The global pandemic crippled the restaurant and theme park industry so this will be a big boost to the house of mouse economy and push the Marvel brand further into the public eye.
