Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, in conjunction with the Hong Kong Government, has opened the first-ever Marvel-themed ride, titled Iron Man Experience, at Hong Kong Disneyland.
The new attraction will allow guests to enter the Iron Wing flight vehicle and join Iron Man in a battle against Hydra across the city of Hong Kong. Riders will make their way to the Hong Kong Stark Tower powered by the arc reactor and fly alongside Iron Man through the streets that resemble those in West Kowloon and downtown. Other Hong Kong landmarks, such as the Tsing Ma Bridge and the Victoria Harbour, will also be featured in the ride.
Iron Man Experience is also the first Disney attraction to feature the city of Hong Kong as its story setting.
“We are always pushing the boundaries of creativity and innovation so that our guests can step into the magical worlds of their favorite stories and meet their most beloved characters,” says Bob Chapek, chairman, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts. “We’re thrilled to be adding the high-tech, action-packed universe of Marvel to Hong Kong Disneyland, and we’ll continue building on it as we move into the next phase of expansion.”
Additionally, the Walt Disney Company and the Hong Kong government unveiled plans for additional Marvel experiences at the park as part of an expansion that would include a Frozen-themed land and a transformed castle and hub area.
