Say you wanted to battle Hydra but also do a little sightseeing, now you can do both in the Iron Man Experience at Hong Kong Disneyland, the first-ever Marvel-themed ride to open at a Disney Park. Tony Stark is your ultimate tour guide as he flies you through the streets of West Kowloon in an immersive motion ride set to open in January 2017.
To begin the experience you first have to don a pair of StarkVision glasses, then board an Iron Wing flight vehicle. Your journey begins flying through the city as you eventually end up at the new Hong Kong Stark Tower to visit the world’s largest Arc Reactor. Don’t get too comfortable, there’s definitely Hydra-themed trouble ahead.
As with all Disney rides, the queue is where it’s at. Disney Imagineers have the unique ability to bring comics and movies to life and the ride queue takes you through a mini Stark Expo showcasing all of his latest and greatest designs. Oh Disney, please make the Stark Expo an annual reality. Imagine all the cool things we could marvel at, pun intended.
Flying side-by-side with Iron Man is every fan’s dream and this interactive experince allows you to feel like it’s a reality. As Stan Lee himself says, “Anybody who goes to a Disney theme park loves color and spectacle and excitement and adventure, and that’s all that Iron Man is. It embodies all of those things.”
The Iron Man Experience is set to open in Hong Kong Disneyland’s Tomorrowland on January 11, 2017
