Disney plans on having a life-like Spider-man animatronic flying above the new Avengers Campus, which is set to open at Disney’s California Adventure later this year.
Disney teased the new Avengers Campus Spider-man feature with a 27-second demo video, which shows the webslinger flying high in the sky doing some wicked cool looking flips at a “top secret location,” per the Disney Parks Blog.
We still don’t have an exact date on when the Avengers Campus will open, but it’ll be sometime “this summer.” When they said that about Galaxy’s Edge, it ended up being right at the tail end of May, so I have some high hopes it’ll be roughly around the same time.
Whether this animatronic Spider-man will be ready when the new land launches is anyone’s guess. It seems like a sort of complex concept, so I wouldn’t be surprised if it takes a little bit longer to roll it out. Then again, maybe they’ve just kept this idea well hidden and the development is already fairly far along.
There’s going to be a lot of awesome stuff coming when the Avengers Campus first opens, though. There will be WEB (Worldwide Engineering Brigade), which is a dark ride that will let you feel like you’re the one swinging across the rooftops of New York City. So even if we don’t have the animatronic Spider-man soaring above us, we can enjoy this unique sounding ride at the very least.
We’ll also have Pym’s Test Kitchen and the Doctor Strange: Journey Into The Mystic Arts show. There will also be characters wandering around the area, which should keep everyone fairly entertained. Another attraction, called the Avengers Headquarters, most likely won’t be open with the rest of the land and will open at a later date. The exterior, however, will be viewable and should provide some entertainment for passersby.
There’s a lot of stuff coming to Disneyland Resort in 2020, and I can’t wait to return to experience it all.
