Avengers Campus Is Confirmed To Open This Year At Disneyland

The new Avengers campus at Disneyland is set to open this year.

The long-awaited attraction was due to open its doors at the California site in 2020, but due to the global coronavirus pandemic, it was delayed.

However, the D23 Fan Club has confirmed that it will launch in 2021.

In a blog post on New Year's Eve, the group said: "Our friends at the Disney Theme Parks have been hard at work creating new magic to share with the world in 2021.

"While Disneyland Resort is currently closed, we are looking forward to exploring Avengers Campus at Disney California Adventure next year, where we can channel our inner Super Hero alongside The Avengers, The Guardians of the Galaxy, and more!"

The exciting park will offer visitors the chance to meet their heroes (or people dressed up like their heroes), strap in on a variety of rides, and watch stunt shows featuring the likes of Captain America, Black Widow, Black Panther and Spider-Man.

Among a series of campuses is the Worldwide Engineering Brigade - also known as 'WEB' - which will house a new Spider-Man experience.

The highlight here will be the 'Web Slinger' ride, which will be the first to open and will see guests don 3D glasses and toss animated webs about like Spidey himself.

Avengers Headquarters, which will open in phase two, will be the entrance to an attraction which will see guests step on a board and 'fly alongside the Avengers in an epic adventure to Wakanda and beyond'

As if that wasn't enough, 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'.

Presumably exhausted and hungry after saving the world, you'll be able to grab something to eat at Pym Test Kitchen which, similarly to Ant-Man and The Wasp, will use 'the latest innovations to grow and shrink food' - though I have no idea how it will do this.

The official synopsis/backstory of the Avengers Campus reads as follows: "The Avengers are setting up new Headquarters and training facilities around the globe to inspire all potential recruits willing to step up and become something more.

"As part of this global initiative, Tony Stark has founded the Worldwide Engineering Brigade - or WEB for short - to develop advancements in super-powered technology, including new enhancements to Spider-Man's suit as their debut project.

"By bringing together the world's brightest young inventors, the WEB is creating new interfaces that will empower all of us to join the ranks of Earth's Mightiest."

Speaking last year during company's annual investor meeting, when the park was set to open last July, Disney executives Bob Iger and Bob Chapek and creative executive Scot Drake said the theme park itself will mirror the characteristics of the Avengers.

He said: "In some ways, these new campuses are like the Avengers themselves: a group of diverse individuals who have teamed up for the same purpose.

"This collection of unique addresses - each dedicated to a different discipline - have been brought together to champion the next generation of heroes."
