If you’ve ever wanted to visit the Marvel universe, now’s your chance.
Well, more accurately, next year’s your chance.
Disney has confirmed Avengers Campus, a new Marvel-themed land, is coming to Disney California Adventure and Disneyland Paris in 2020.
Walt Disney Imagineering’s Scot Drake shared that the premise is that these are campuses set up by the Avengers to recruit the next generation of superheroes — i.e., park guests. The two locations, along with Hong Kong Disneyland (which is home to the attractions Iron Man Experience and Ant-Man and the Wasp: Nano Battle!), will be “linked together in a global story.”
Avengers Campus will feature “the first-ever Spider-Man-themed attraction at a Disney park,” per Drake. Called W.E.B. (Worldwide Engineering Brigade), the ride invites guests on board the Webslinger vehicle, where they can shoot webs to help Peter catch all the Spider-Bots overrunning the campus.
In addition, Doctor Strange fans can look forward to exploring the ruins of a mysterious California Sanctum.
There’s also the Pym Test Kitchen, where guests can go to eat food that may have been grown or shrunk by Pym particles. (The Avengers Campus booth on the D23 show floor had on display an enormous plastic pretzel, if you’re curious about the kind of food they might have.)
And, of course, fans will get to interact with characters from the Marvel universe, including Black Widow, Star-Lord, Gamora, Groot, Black Panther, the Dora Milaje, Thor, and Loki.
All of the above will be part of the first phase of Avengers Campus, which will open at Disney California Adventure next year. The second phase, which will be unveiled at some point after that, will include a Quinjet ride to Wakanda, where guests will get to suit up and help the Avengers in battle.
Elsewhere in the Disney universe, the Guardians of the Galaxy are headed to Epcot, in the form of a new rollercoaster called Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, which kicks off with a “reverse launch into space.” It’s not quite Avengers Campus, but a trip to Xandar is nothing to sniff at, either.
