Disneyland Paris has revealed its plans to bring the Marvel Super Heroes to life with the launch of a new Marvel-themed attraction at Walt Disney Studios.
The big reveal was made during the D23 Expo Japan, where more than 2000 fans gathered to hear Walt Disney Parks and Resorts chairman, Bob Chapek detail the latest Disney projects in development.
Disneyland Paris’ Marvel-themed attraction is designed to build on the momentum of the resort’s 25th anniversary celebration and follows the recent news that Walt Disney Parks and Resorts is preparing to incorporate more popular stories and characters into Europe’s top tourist destination.
The plans will see Disneyland’s Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith reimagined into a new Marvel-themed attraction, where riders will team up with Iron Man and the cast of The Avengers on a high-speed, hyper-kinetic adventure.
The addition of the new attraction provides a permanent presence of Marvel.
Meanwhile, Disney’s Hotel New York will soon be reimagined to become Disney’s Hotel New York – The Art of Marvel. It will become 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,’ read a statement from Disney.
For those unable to wait to experience Marvel at Disneyland Paris, The Avengers are assembling this June during Marvel Summer of Super Heroes, which will bring guests face-to-face with Captain America, Spider-Man, Star Lord and Black Widow for a live-action production featuring special effects, projections and more.
“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, Presidente of euro Disney SAS.
Disneyland Paris boasts two theme parks and seven themed Disney hotels with 5,800 rooms. It also comprises 59 attractions, 63 shops and 55 restaurants.
