Disneyland Paris planning new Marvel attraction

Attraction will see riders team with Iron Man and other Avengers for high speed adventure.

Disneyland Paris has revealed plans to bring the Marvel Super Heroes to life in a new way, with plans for a new Marvel-themed attraction.

The news comes from Walt Disney Parks and Resorts chairman Bob Chapek during the D23 Expo Japan, where more than 2,000 fans were the first to hear about the latest projects in development for Disney guests all over the world, including those for Disneyland Paris.

The new development builds on the momentum of the resort’s 25th anniversary celebrations and follows the recent news that Walt Disney Parks and Resorts is preparing to incorporate more popular stories and characters into the tourist destination.

The Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith will be completely reimagined into a new Marvel-themed attraction where riders will team up with Iron Man and other Avengers on a high-speed, hyper-kinetic adventure.

Additionally, Disney’s Hotel New York will soon be reimagined to become Disney’s Hotel New York – The Art of Marvel, becoming the first Disney Hotel to showcase the world of the Avengers. With exclusive artwork and a new design, it will be a residence fit for Tony Stark himself.

On top of all this, the Avengers will assemble in June at Disneyland PAris during Marvel Summer of Super Heroes, which will bring guests face to face with Captain America, Spider-Man, Star Lord and Black Widow.

The live action production will feature cutting edge special effects, projections and other surprises.

“These ambitious Marvel developments across Disneyland Paris will create brand new immersive Super Hero experiences for our guests, and will enhance the overall appeal of our resort,” said Catherine Powell, présidente of Euro Disney S.A.S.
