Insiders, assemble! In just a little over a month (June 4!), Avengers Campus will be finally opening at Disney’s California Adventure and it looks like this new Marvel-themed land is going to blow us away! The Disney Parks Blog recently did a behind-the-scenes tour of this highly anticipated land, and between the rides, the attractions and the food, this new Marvel land has a lot in store for us!
The main entrance to the land is located adjacent to the Worldwide Engineering Brigade – also known as WEB, however, the land also features a back entrance just outside of Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT!, one of the land’s anchor attractions. But take peek here Insiders…do you see what I see? What is that curious blue and yellow substance on the ground in front of Guardians of the Galaxy?
The Disney Parks Blog explains that this “is a late addition to the Campus, Taneleer Tivan, a.k.a. the Collector, placed his Fortress against its edges. This placement warped the ground immediately surrounding the alien stronghold causing a cosmic disruption to ooze from the ground below. Hues of blues, purples and yellows glow in the daylight.”
Nearby, The Collector will also be curating a weird and wonderful menu of intergalactic eats at the Terran Treats food cart. He will be luring Guests to this location with weird and wonderful menu of intergalactic eats, including churro spirals and cosmic cream orbs in vibrant colors. We can hardly wait to try some of his treats!
The Pym Test Kitchen is a food innovation science lab where the food and drinks will tell Guests a story. Just as Ant-Man and The Wasp use “Pym Particles” to grow and shrink just about anything, Pym Technologies applies this innovative science to the creation of inventive-sized foods, like the pretzels that grow and shrink as they pass through the quantum tunnel. You can see below that this logic will apply overhead in the beverage and condiment station. Big and small appetites will be welcome here!
At the Avengers Headquarters, you will find the emblematic Avengers “A” on the building and surrounding areas. Here you may catch a glimpse of the Avengers springing into action, ready to save the day. The already popular and iconic Quinjet sits atop its roof as a beacon for the campus.
Nearby, in another dimension, will be overgrown ruins of an Ancient Sanctum. According to the Disney Parks Blog, “for as long as anyone can remember, rumors of unexplained events and energies have emanated from this remote location. Here, you’ll learn mysterious secrets from Doctor Strange and discover ancient, magical artifacts. Pictured here, the Orb of Cagliostro is known to be especially active at night when it flows with magical energy!”
Disney Parks Blog gives us one final stop in the tour at the front of the land. In the Marvel world, Tony Stark’s father built a Stark Motors factory here in California in the 1940’s. Decades later, Tony transformed the site into the Worldwide Engineering Brigade – what we know and call as WEB now. The Disney Parks Blog describes this area:
This is the place where bright innovators like Peter Parker have been assembled by Tony Stark to invent new technologies and equip everyday people to become heroes. While the Avengers themselves are sleek, organized, and structured, WEB is expressive, youthful and chaotic. You’ll notice this throughout WEB. For example, outside the former factory building, you can’t miss the colorful graffiti murals created by young recruits with a knack for the arts.
How excited are you for Avengers Campus to open up next month?!
