The Walt Disney Parks and Resorts portion of the 2015 D23 Expo was dominated by Star Wars, Toy Story, and Avatar. But amid the talk of galaxies and worlds far, far away was Iron Man. The beloved Marvel character is getting his own Iron Man Experience attraction at Hong Kong Disneyland, and Disney showcased a new look at what’s in store.
The Iron Man Experience is coming in 2016, and it will be the first official Marvel ride to hit any Disney park. Marvel worked with ILM to create this simulation experience that begins at the Stark Expo.
If you recall from the first Captain America film, Dominic Cooper’s Howard Stark showcased his new technology to the public. It’s the same idea here. According to Marvel, guests will experience the history of Stark Industries all the way up to what Tony is doing in the present.
Attendees will then get to hop aboard the Iron Wing, a new flight craft. A quick ride will take you to the top of the new Hong Kong Stark Tower when all of sudden the trip will be bombarded by an attack from Hydra. Check out this video from the presentation to get a taste of the action.
