The new Avengers Campus is set to open at Disney California Adventure this summer. This new “land” promises to wow guests with Spider-Man swinging across the sky, Captain America leaping from rooftops and Doctor Strange conjuring up magic spells.
“Avengers Campus really is going to blow people away,” Disney California Adventure vice president Patrick Finnegan said. Patrick also revealed new details about this Marvel-themed Avengers Campus.
Avengers Campus with open in phases. The first phase will open with a Spider-Man attraction, Doctor Strange show, Ant-Man and the Wasp restaurant and Marvel character rooftop stunt show. The second phase will open on an unannounced date with an Avengers E-ticket attraction.
A high-flying Spider-Man autonomous audio-animatronic stunt robot will swing by a web and perform midair acrobatic feats over Avengers Campus. “This thing is just going to be eyebrow-raising and visible from a lot of places,” Finnegan said.
There’s also a new Spider-Man attraction coming to Avengers Campus. Riders will use hand gestures to sling virtual webs from Web Slinger ride vehicles at spider-bots that have run amok. “Its next-level stuff,” Finnegan said. “It’s going to be really popular and really cool. It’s not height restricted, so it’s great for the entire family.”
There will be an outdoor stage show hosted by Doctor Strange. The show is expected to use special effects and projections to simulate his Sanctum Sanctorum. Doctor Strange will teach the audience how to harness energy from other dimensions, bend the laws of time and space, and unravel the mysteries of the multiverse. “He will engage with guests in ways that are very different from the ways our other characters do,” Finnegan said. “It’s going to allow us to tell some really cool stories in this land.”
The new land will have a new restaurant too! Pym Test Kitchen will be themed to Ant-Man and the Wasp and will serve food that has been shrunk or expanded in size. The foods will be resized using Pym Particles, the same technology used to shrink Ant-Man and the Wasp, according to the backstory for the restaurant. Red Pym Particles shrink items while blue ones expand them.
Finnegan recently took part in a tasting of the Pym Test Kitchen menu. “The food is amazing,” Finnegan said. “I can’t tell you what’s on the menu, but it advances the story.”
For the second phase of Avengers Campus, an Avengers E-ticket attraction will open. This attraction will be the first of its kind! “That is the next big one,” Finnegan said. “We haven’t announced timing or a whole lot of detail.”
The attraction will feature an all-new ride system with guests climbing aboard a Quinjet, flying to Wakanda and joining a team of Marvel superheroes in a battle against giant winged insects with razor-sharp teeth.
Avengers Campus will be an amazing area at Disney California Adventure park! Who else is super excited about this coming land?
