There were many superheroes on Saturday, July 9, 2022 atAvengers Campus of Disneyland Paris based in Chessy, in the Seine-et-Marne. 10 days before the official opening of this new space dedicated to the Marvel universe, the amusement park opened its doors this weekend as a preview and we were among the first recruits! We tried to live up to it, to tell you everything.
Large project of Disneyland Paris to renew its park Walt Disney Studios, waited for five yearsthis “superhero training campus” will open its doors to the public on July 20, 2022.
Landscape inspired by Tony Stark aka Iron Man
After a curtain raises orchestrated by Spider Manthe campus superstar worshiped by visitors, discover this new themed area and its buildings on industrial and modern stylejust like its creator. According to the story told on campus, it actually is TOny Stark, aka Iron Manwho designed the buildings.
Diving with the greatest heroes
At the end of the alley, the Quinjet (aircraft often used by Marvel heroes), sitting on a raised platform and FRIDAYStark Industries’ artificial intelligence, uploaded to campus, comes alive on the pediment ofFlight Force attraction to guide and train visitors. This is the very first virtual character in Disneyland Paris Park. No doubt we are with.
It’s a world where you can launch cobwebs like Spiderman, save the universe with Iron Man and Captain Marvel and dance with the Guardians of the Galaxy. This is our very own superhero base.
Throw spiders like Spiderman
Here are visitors ” recruiter ». The creation of the Avengers Campus imagined by Disney tells that Tony Stark wants to create a network of gyms around the world to find tomorrow’s superheroes (a first Avengers Campus opened in California last year). In the French version, therefore, there is a “training center”, to obtain valuable advice from the Avengers and (especially) take a picture to create your recruiting brand.
First mission for us in “Spiderman WEB Adventures” : Save the Avengers Campus from a spider invasion with Spider-Man. When Peter Parker, aka Spiderman, hosts an open house, these red and blue spiders (not originally evil) multiply out of control and threaten campus.
The attraction is captivating and original. Equipped with 3D glasses, we board our “web slinger” (the vehicle that allows us to do so throw cobwebs like Spiderman) thanks to a system of sensors integrated in this red and blue ship.
Just reach out, aim and the tissues leave as if by magic. We quickly find ourselves excited in all directions and cry victory after each episode. But given our score at the end of the attraction, some have a little more practice to save the universe!
Save the planet with Iron Man and Captain Marvel
Second mission, more classic but still effective, “Flight Force”that the Rock’n Roller Coaster. This time it’s about helping Iron Man and Captain Marvel save the world from an intergalactic threat. Not all superheroes are available and they need a helping hand. “You can turn around, no one will judge you,” says the last sign.
You have to hang on under this completely redesigned roller coaster, which does ranker and loops. After one start at 90 km / h, immersed in the dark, hard to know if we have our heads up or down. With sound in the seat, you can hear the fight unfold, and those who manage to lift their heads will see the footage synchronized with the story. hair-raising.
A living land, in contemplation
Disneyland Paris wanted its new “land”, in Disney jargon like the other spaces (Fantaisyland, Discoveryland, etc.), dedicated to the Marvel universe, very immersive. The bet is successful. That storiesthem decorationseven the catering areas are very extensive as the destination knows how to do.
We may encounter at any time Thor and his evil half-brother Loki, Doctor Strange Where Ant manwatch a fight on the roofs, learn to swing the spear with Okay and wakanda warriors (the world of Black Panther), and yes, dance with Star-Lord and Gamora Guardians of the Galaxy. To move faster, the superheroes can also climb into the ADV (Avengers Deployment Vehicle), a futuristic vehicle with angular shapes.
“Avengers Campus was designed as a living park that can evolve with new stories”announces Disneyland Paris.
Here you do not have to book your place in a designated place to take a picture with a character. On the Avengers Campus, you can ask the superheroes walking around campus for a selfie!
The same goes for the shows that take place during the day, without a predefined time, and which invite recruits to participate to train. So, sDo you think you have what it takes to become a superhero and join the Avengers?
