Hong Kong Disneyland Marvel Super Heroes Summer - Video

The Marvel Super Heroes Summer has started at Hong Kong Disneyland, but here it's more than short parades or simple meet and greet with characters as they've built a S.H.I.E.L.D warehouse, in fact a Marvel themed maze in which HKDL guests will meet Spiderman, Thor, Black Widow, Dr Strange, Star Lord from Guardians of the Galaxy, enter a room with items belonging to the Collector - with Audio-Animatronics! - and there is even a storyline and a mission as guests will help to find missing elements of a sacred artifact and defeat Hydra, but i don't tell you more to don't spoil the whole experience.

Hong Kong Disneyland is always good in this kind of themed maze. It's temporary, sure, but for something which last just a few months it's not done cheap with even Audio-Animatronics and visual effects! I wonder why they never do this kind of thing at DLP, and they would even have the room for it where is currently the Pizza Planet restaurant behind Space Mountain... Anyway, enjoy the video filmed by Eugene Fong!

It's rather Bizarre if you ask me.

Spidey just standing in the first room seems awkward as he just kinda poses and I'm sure gives dialogue about the Attractions story to keep it going but, it's just weird to me.

I feel like this experience would only be popular in Hong Kong and not much else.

Effort was put into it, but as far as a walkthrough Attractions is it's done well but I can't get over how just odd it is.

Like I said maybe it's popular there.

Don't worry, Alain, DLP will do a Marvel Super Hero season next year (in the WDS park). During the last (ever) shareholders meeting, they announced a Marvel makeover (+ expansion) in the WDS for the upcoming years.

In spring 2018, the Marvel Stunt Show is supposed to open in the (already closed) CinéMagique building. And I wouldn't be surprised if they transformed the ToT into Guardians. If not in 2018, than definitely in 2019. Of course, the best way to promote this Marvel invasion in DLP, will be by organizing a Marvel Super Hero season (just like in Anaheim and Hong Kong).
