Disneyland Resort’s Marvel-themed land is assembled.
Avengers Campus at Disney California Adventure Park will reopen June 4th, less than one month after the Disneyland Resort reopens from its pandemic closure.
“We are so excited to soon welcome our guests to Avengers Campus, our first land dedicated to Super Heroes,” said Ken Potrock, president, Disneyland Resort. “Here, our cast members will unite to help guests of all ages find their super powers and create special memories.”
Avengers Campus will bring new rides, character performances, food and life to Disney California Adventure Park.
One area is the Worldwide Engineering Brigade—aka WEB— where Tony Stark has assembled an incredible group of bright innovators like Peter Parker, who are dedicated to inventing new technologies that equip everyday people to become Super Heroes like the Avengers. It’s at WEB where guests will experience the brand-new WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure, the first Disney ride-through attraction to feature the iconic friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.
Tom Holland reprises his role as Peter Parker in WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure, and the new attraction promises fun for the entire family through an action-packed adventure that invites guests to put their web-slinging skills to the test. Using innovative technology that’s been adapted specifically for this attraction, guests will team up with Spidey and help capture out-of-control Spider-Bots before they wreak havoc on the Campus. During an open house at WEB, Peter Parker and the aspiring inventors ask guests to wear 3D glasses and test drive their latest invention, the WEB Slinger vehicle, which allows them to sling webs like Spider-Man and experience what it’s like to have super powers.
Avengers Headquarters, with the Quinjet sitting atop its roof, will offer guests the opportunity to see some of their favorite heroes, such as Captain America, Black Panther or Black Widow, assemble to survey the campus. In fact, throughout Avengers Campus, Super Heroes come to life in ways that are more exciting than ever, from Spider-Man defying gravity as he flips 60 to 65 feet in the air above the rooftop of the WEB building; to Black Panther’s loyal bodyguards, Dora Milaje, who impart their wisdom to recruits and share a sense of what it’s like to be a member of this elite royal guard. Okoye, the leader of the Dora Milaje, also debuts for the first time in a Disney park as she leads this training encounter. Not far from Avengers Headquarters, guests can explore the overgrown ruins of an Ancient Sanctum and learn mysterious secrets from Doctor Strange, who will train recruits in the ways of the mystic arts by bringing this Ancient Sanctum to life with powerful spells (and at night, the Ancient Sanctum glows even more vividly with majestic colors and lights pulsating with mystic energy).
Guests will be able to try food at Pym Test Kitchen and Pym Tasting Lab. In the Pym Test Kitchen, just as Ant-Man and The Wasp use “Pym Particles” to grow and shrink just about anything, Pym Technologies applies this science to the creation of shareable bites, inventive entrees and sweet treats. Among the menu items are the Impossible™ plant-based large and micro meatballs with pasta, and the “Pym-ini,” a panini served by the slice or as a long, multi-portion sandwich. All of it pairs perfectly with a glass of Pingo Doce, the distinctly green beverage from Avenger lore that will be available at Avengers Campus.
Grown-up beverages are available at Pym Tasting Lab, including craft beers that range from a blood orange hefeweizen to an amber lager. And adding to the fun (as if the oversized beer can overhead wasn’t enough!), these are poured from a different kind of draft system where, thanks to the food scientists, the glass fills from the bottom up. The Pym Research Staff has also concocted some unique Pym-Particle infused cocktail experiments, along with bite-sized snacks guests are sure to enjoy.
Recruits who have worked up an appetite can also partake in the offerings at Shawarma Palace—a favorite of the Avengers, who discovered their new favorite food after the Battle of New York, when they took Tony Stark up on his offer to try the food at the “shawarma joint” about two blocks from the battle zone. This second location of their beloved dining spot is at Avengers Campus by special request of the Avengers. And Taneleer Tivan is curating a weird and wonderful menu of intergalactic eats at Terran Treats, a food cart near Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT!
“Avengers Campus will be a place where fans and guests can finally step into the universe they love, and stand alongside some of their favorite heroes,” said Dave Bushore, vice president of Franchise Creative & Marketing for Marvel Studios. “The optimism inherent in Avengers Campus captures the diversity, power and teamwork these extraordinary characters possess, and now they come together to unite people from all over the world under one guiding principle: We are stronger together.
Disneyland Resort will be open at a limited capacity and will require park reservations when Avengers Campus opens June 4th.
