‘Iron Man’ Deployed to Hong Kong DisneylandPosted: October 8, 2013
The attraction starts with the progression of Tony Stark’s suit and his other technologies. The anchor of the attraction is the Iron Man Experience, where guests will take flight on an adventure ride that pits Iron Man, and guests, against alien invaders in the streets and skies of Hong Kong.
The new unit will open in late 2016.
“Since Marvel became part of the Disney family, our Imagineers have been dreaming up new ways for our guests to experience their favorite Marvel characters and stories,” said Tom Staggs, chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts.
With the Disney’s Shanghai park set to open in 2015, there are concerns that the Disney units will compete with each other for visitors, especially mainland Chinese tourists. “The new Marvel-themed area will give guests visiting Hong Kong Disneyland even more reasons to visit,” said Andrew Kam, MD of Hong Kong Disneyland.
