In The Walt Disney Company’s 2021 Annual Meeting of Shareholders, CEO Bob Chapek reaffirmed the company still plans to open the Avengers Campus at Disneyland in late 2021. This reaffirmation of the news comes following the announcement the company is planning to reopen the theme park resort after its temporary closure that has almost last a full year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The company first announced its plans to open the Avengers Campus in late 2021 in an email in January to members of the D23 Disney fan club. Upon its opening in 2021, Marvel’s Avengers Campus will allow guests to explore a land created for the next generation of super heroes! The themed area will feature an all-new attraction themed after Spider-Man, which will allow guests to go on a web-slinging adventure.
Here is Disney’s official synopsis of the new Spider-Man attraction, per the Disney website:
Embark on an action-packed adventure alongside the amazing Spider-Man! When Peter Parker’s helpful but otherwise buggy Spider-Bots get stuck in replication mode and escape from a WEB Workshop, Spider-Man must stop the rampaging robots before they wreak total techno-havoc across Avengers Campus. Problem is, they’re rapidly leveling up and becoming tough to beat!
Your task? Hop aboard a WEB Slinger vehicle and help weave a frenzied web to trap these friendly neighborhood sidekicks in true Spidey style. It’s up to you to unleash your inner hero and save the Campus from complete chaos!
Perfect for up-and-coming recruits—with no height restrictions.
The land will also premiere Sanctum, where guests will get to explore the ruins of a mysterious ancient underground and learn the site’s secrets from Doctor Strange. This is in addition to Avengers Headquarters, where visitors will get to watch earth’s mightiest heroes spring into action to defend the Avengers command center!
Avengers Campus includes Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: Breakout!, which first premiered at Disney California Adventure in 2017 after the former attraction, The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, was remodeled into the Avengers-themed ride.
