Step aside Mickey! Ionic Marvel superhero Iron Man is the theme of the newest attraction, The Iron Man Experience, set to open up in 2016 at the Hong Kong Disneyland. The expansion comes on the coattails of the park’s first profitable year since opening, as well as the projected completion of Shanghai Disneyland, set to be completed in 2015.
The attraction, first of it’s kind at any of the six disneyland parks around the world, is also the first time that a Disney park will be centered around a Marvel superhero. It will be a expansion of Tomorrowland, and will allow visitors to battle alien invaders alongside Iron Man, go on themed rides, and even take pictures with the hero himself. The area will also be selling Iron Man-themed merchandise, so you can make sure to get a photo with Iron Man, on the Iron Man ride in your Iron Man T-shirt. (who needs It’s A Small World anymore?)
A spokesman for the Commerce and Economic Development Bureau has said that they hope the new themed area will help the park bring in more young adults.
