You can’t get any hotter than Marvel right now. Characters from Marvel are some of the most recognizable in history. They have a universe that spans not only comics, but also video games, TV shows, and of course huge movies. The Marvel Experience takes what you’ve seen from Marvel Superheroes and amps it up to an unprecedented level with a travelling show that will span several cities, and take you on adventures with some of the biggest names in the Marvel Universe. The best news? It’s coming soon to a city near you!
The Marvel Experience has launched tickets for four U.S. cities, with the first stop being Scottsdale Arizona, this December. The tour will continue into 2015, and will include even more cities as the tour continues. The tour is being called a “Hyper-Reality” Experience, and will feature a huge dome complex that spans the size of two football fields. Guests will get an up close experience with Marvel superheroes and villains like they’ve never had before.
The experience will feature a huge 360 degree, 3D projection dome that will take you face to face with some of Marvel’s biggest heroes like you’ve never seen them. Technology is a huge factor in many of the Marvel comics, films and TV shows, and it is front and center in the all new Marvel Experience. RFID progress tracking, augmented reality, and multi-person gaming will be on display as you blast through the different experiences. A state of the art 4D motion ride will also be part of the experience, and will take guests on a Marvel Adventure, not unlike the huge Amazing Spiderman ride at Universal Orlando. Marvel collectibles, dining and even a life sized Quinjet will be on display as well.
Here are the cities and dates so far:
Dec. 12-Jan. 3: Phoenix, AZ The Domes at Salt River Fields — Talking Stick
Jan. 9-Feb. 1: Dallas, TX The Domes at Cotton Bowl
Feb. 7-Feb. 22: San Diego, CA The Domes at Del Mar Fairgrounds
Feb. 27-March 22: San Francisco, CA The Domes at AT&T Park
The big question is, will the Marvel Experience be coming to the East Coast, specifically Florida? Universal and Marvel have a contract that prohibits any Marvel characters in theme park attractions East of the Mississippi. It’s the big reason why Disney (who now owns Marvel) has not done huge characters or attractions in their Walt Disney World Parks yet. We reached out to the management team to ask them just that question. While they would not give us any confirmed dates, they did confirm that more dates would be announced soon, including several stops on the East Coast. We’re going to guess that Central Florida and probably even South Florida will be part of those East Coast dates.
