Opening of the Avengers Campus at Disneyland Paris: watch the Iron Man announcement here!

Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) fans, unite! Disneyland Paris will soon be opening its own Avengers Campus later this year, and in celebration of the theme park’s 30th anniversary, no less!

Disneyland Paris recently announced that the Avengers-inspired theme park will open on July 20 via a YouTube video, which has Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man (or his voice at least) as the host.

MCU fans can look forward to plenty of Avengers-themed activities aimed at nurturing “the next generation of heroes,” as the reveal video puts it.

Disneyland Paris Avengers Campus Attractions

According to Disneyland Paris’ webpage for its upcoming theme park, Marvel’s Avengers Campus will open on July 20 and will feature interactive and less-interactive rides, attractions, and Avengers-themed restaurants and shops.

For starters, Disneyland Paris’ Avengers Campus offers the “Avengers Assemble: Flight Force,” a kind of roller coaster ride that lets park-goers “team up with Iron Man and Captain Marvel to help them save the world from a intergalactic threat”.

This particular ride has a minimum height requirement of 1.2 meters or approximately 3.93 feet.

Another ride, the “Spider-Man WEB Adventure,” lets park-goers join Marvel’s friendly Spider-man neighborhood on an action-packed mission while using “innovative new technology” to launch their own web and Catch Spider-Bots before they cause total technological mayhem throughout the theme park.

The “Spider-Man WEB Adventure” ride has no minimum height requirement.

Additionally, the theme park will offer on-the-ground activities, such as joining Black Panther, Thor, and their fellow Avengers as recruits to help save the day, which could happen at any time.

Alternatively, park-goers can simply meet their favorite Marvel Super Heroes as they show off their tech, armor, and best battle stances, all while seeing them in action for yourself.

Park-goers-turned-rookies who want to have a “training session” with their favorite heroes can do so at the campus training facility, according to CNET’s interview with Disney Engineering’s Avengers Campus Creative Director Beth Clapperton. .

The theme park also offers two restaurants that would help fuel the recruits’ bellies for their next mission. This is Tony Stark’s factory, which offers pizza, pasta and salad as well as a view of the playboy philanthropist genius’ inventions, such as Iron Man costumes.

Stark’s factory can also serve as a “high-tech workspace” where superheroes can come “to build and repair their equipment”.

On the other hand, PYM Kitchen offers good quality but unusually large buffet-style dishes, all prepared by chefs using PYM particle “shrink and grow” technology from Ant-Man and The Wasp.

Of course, recruits can dress up and gear up for their heroic missions and training sessions at Mission Equipment, a shop that offers the latest tech, uniforms, and weapons related to the web and the Avengers campus.

Park-goers can also head to Avengers Headquarters where they can hear Tony Stark’s AI, FRIDAY, who is the main character at Disneyland Paris’ Avengers Campus.

Similarities to the Avengers Campus at Disneyland California

There are some similarities to the Avengers campus at Disneyland in California, Clapperton said.

Disneyland California’s Avengers Campus was the first of two to open, and it was made available to the public on June 4, 2021, on Disneyland California’s web page for the theme park.

One of them is Spidey’s WEB Adventure present on both campuses. However, the difference between the two is that the one in Paris is aimed at Disney’s multilingual audience.

The architecture of the Paris campus is slightly different from a pragmatic point of view, so the place is not an exact replica of the California campus.

Further proof that the two campuses are not identical, the “Avengers Assemble: Flight Force” and the Avengers Campus training center are exclusive to the Paris Campus.
