Avengers Campus Opening July 18, 2020 at Disney California Adventure
Disney today announced that the highly anticipated Avengers Campus at Disney California Adventure will open on July 18, 2020. In addition, the park announced the name and new details about the new area’s flagship attraction.
The Avengers Campus will invite Disney California Adventure guests to “team up with the Avengers and their allies in a fully immersive land at Disney California Adventure park.” The area will include several locations hosted by a different Avenger.
The superheroes will share their powers, technology and knowledge with guests, who are acting as “recruits.”
New details were released about the land’s flagship attraction as well as dining and other entertainment offerings:
WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure
Inside the Worldwide Engineering Brigade (WEB for short) is Web Slingers: A Spider-Man Adventure, Disney’s first ride-through attraction to feature Spider-Man.
The indoor ride will feature a “seamless blend” of 3D and physical sets. Guests will have the opportunity to experience their own superpowers and sling webs with Spider-Man.
Spider-Man actor Tom Holland is reprising his role for the Web Slingers attraction:
WEB is all about how bright young innovators like Peter Parker are inventing new technologies that let all of us become Super Heroes. Being able to authentically represent Peter’s character was a critical element to our story, and thanks to our Studio partners, I’m excited to share that Tom Holland will reprise his role as part of this attraction experience.
Shopping at Avengers Campus
Near Web Slingers, the Web Suppliers store will offer guests the chance to find the latest WEB inventions such as Spider-Bots, which are featured in the ride itself.
Guests will be able to customize their Spider-Bots:
Each Spider-Bot has a remote control, and all eight articulated legs move forward and backward. Best of all, you can tap into your inner WEB inventor by customizing your Spider-Bot with tactical upgrades to harness the powers and styles of favorite Super Heroes, including Black Panther, Iron Man and Black Widow, as well as Ant-Man and The Wasp.
Additional items at WEB Suppliers include:
- a specially-designed backpack to carry Spider-Bots when they are not in action
- Spider-Man light goggles
- a take-home spider web kit
- Funko Pop! vinyl figurines of Spider-Man and Iron Man
The nearby Campus Supply Pod features official Avengers Campus gear, apparel, headwear, drinkware and other supplies.
Food at Avengers Campus
Avengers Campus will be home to three new dining experiences.
- Pym Test Kitchen — a food innovation science lab where “food and drinks tell a story.” Offerings include shareable bites, inventive-sized entrees and sweet treats. These include 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.
- Pym Tasting Lab — an oversized beer can with craft beer and specialty cocktails
- Shawarma Palace — a food cart featuring a menu of shawarma-inspired snacks and intergalactic eats
Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: Breakout!
