Avengers fans, assemble! Disneyland's new Avengers Campus is finally set to open on 4 June 2021.
The long-anticipated attraction was meant to open its doors at the Disneyland Resort in California in 2020. But it was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Disneyland California will be opening with limited capacity on 30 April and for now, only Californian residents in groups no larger than three households can visit. A new theme park reservation system will be put in place to manage capacity.
The new theme park has several 'heroic locations', each with a different Avenger to share their unique powers, technology and knowledge with visitors (aka 'recruits').
Avengers fans will be able to strap in on a variety of rides and watch stunt shows featuring the likes of Captain America, Black Widow, Black Panther and Spider-Man.
The park also includes a new Spider-Man experience at the Worldwide Engineering Brigade - also known as the 'WEB'.
"We are so excited to soon welcome our guests to Avengers Campus, our first land dedicated to Super Heroes," said Ken Potrock, president of Disneyland Resort. "Here, our cast members will unite to help guests of all ages find their super powers and create special memories."
One of the highlights will be the 'Web Slinger' ride, which will be the first to open. Recruits will be able to immerse themselves in a 3D experience where they'll toss animated webs about like Spider-Man himself.
Avengers Headquarters, which will open later on, will allow guests to step on a board and 'fly alongside the Avengers in an epic adventure to Wakanda and beyond.'
They'll also 'team up alongside the Avengers in a battle to save our world against one of the most powerful villains they have ever faced'.
"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.
He added: "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 Park and Disney California Adventure officially reopen to the public on 30 April 2021.
