Hong Kong Disneyland today announced that ride system tests have begun at Marvel’s Iron Man Experience, the upcoming attraction featuring Marvel’s iron-clad Super Hero. With construction nearing completion, the attraction is scheduled to open in late 2016 at Stark Expo, Tomorrowland’s new Marvel-themed area, which will also include a cool interactive “Become Iron Man” experience, exclusive themed merchandise and an immersive, story-driven character greeting with the man himself … Iron Man!
Iron Man Experience is the first Marvel ride-through attraction at a Disney Park. Guests will take flight on an epic adventure across Hong Kong alongside Iron Man, while challenging the evil forces of Hydra. The high-tech ride system is currently being tested by the resort’s expert team of Walt Disney Imagineers.
The story of Iron Man Experience begins when Tony Stark (aka Iron Man) decides to bring the Stark Expo to Tomorrowland at Hong Kong Disneyland. Guests can visit the Expo and explore the latest and greatest innovations from Stark Industries.
They can also go aboard an Iron Wing vehicle, the latest flying transport invented by Stark Industries, and journey through Hong Kong streets, which resemble West Kowloon and Causeway Bay. Guests will soar into the city and recognize landmarks along the way like the Tsing Ma Bridge, the city’s pristine mountain ranges, iconic urban taxis and the harbor front as they battle against the forces of evil.
