It's time to assemble: Disneyland's Avengers Campus opens to guests and superheroes

Now that it's getting safer to assemble, the Avengers are at last descending on Disneyland, which is opening the Marvel heroes' own campus today.

Now that it’s getting safer to assemble, the Avengers are at last descending on Disneyland, which is opening the Marvel heroes’ own campus today.

Spider-Man will fly high above Disneyland Resort’s new Avengers Campus in California when it starts welcoming the public tumbling through the air as guests below meet Iron Man, Black Panther and other Marvel superheroes.

Guests who are lifelong fans of Super Heroes and those discovering them for the first time are invited to team up with the Avengers and their allies to live out their Super Hero dreams in this fully immersive land that mixes innovative technology and fun for all ages.

The Avengers Campus at Disney California Adventure Park in Anaheim is the Walt Disney Co’s latest redesign of its much-loved theme parks, which were closed for extended periods during the coronavirus pandemic.

Inside the fully immersive Avengers Campus you will be invited to team up with the Avengers and their allies and live out your Super Hero dreams.

Highlights include an aerial Spider-Man robot that performs somersaults while flying 18 metres in the air. Another Spider-Man will also greet visitors at ground level.

Guests can also ride a Spider-Man attraction called Web Slingers, where they team with the character to battle out-of-control Spider-Bots.

Physical sets and virtual environments will blend to make visitors feel as if they are slinging their own webs, designers say.

Fan favourites from Disney’s blockbuster Marvel movies, from Black Widow to Captain America and Ant-Man, also will roam the area and interact with guests.

“It’s the first time we are celebrating all of these heroes and bringing them together in one place,” said John Mauro, portfolio executive producer at Walt Disney Imagineering.

The Avengers campus, which opens to the public on Friday 4 June, had originally been set to open in July 2020.

The Disneyland Resort, which includes the original Disneyland and adjacent California Adventure, reopened to the public on April 30 after being closed for more than a year due to the pandemic.

As part of ongoing safety measures, Disneyland is accepting guests only from California until June 15, when it will start allowing visitors from other states.

Guests are currently required to wear face masks.
