Hong Kong Disneyland to bid farewell to Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters to prepare for future development and another exciting Marvel attraction
HONG KONG, August 7, 2017 – Hong Kong Disneyland Resort (HKDL) has always been committed to offering the best one-of-a-kind entertainment experiences to our guests. Now, HKDL is gearing up for the next page in its exciting development and expansion, in which popular stories, characters and all-new attractions will be introduced.
As Hong Kong Disneyland continues to grow, Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters located in Tomorrowland will be transformed into a new Marvel-themed interactive shooting game, making it the second Marvel-themed attraction following the popular Iron Man Experience. Upon completion, guests can join Marvel Super Heroes to defeat invaders in this new attraction. Hong Kong’s transformation into a must-visit destination for Marvel fans will culminate when the new Marvel-themed land opens at HKDL in the future.
HKDL will bid farewell to Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters on August 31. Patrick Dunn, Flight Lieutenant of the Hong Kong Air Cadet Corps joined Sammy Phu, Hong Kong Disneyland Resort Ambassador, for one final adventure with Buzz Lightyear on this iconic ride-through attraction based on the blockbuster movie “Toy Story 2.”
From August 8 until 31, Buzz Lightyear will come to Tomorrowland and support guests from the “Buzz Lightyear Guard” as they finish their final mission at the entrance of Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters. At the same time, to commemorate this meaningful moment, HKDL will introduce and distribute free Buzz Lightyear-themed stickers to guests as souvenirs at Tomorrowland. Meanwhile, fans of Buzz Lightyear can purchase an array of Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters-themed products at Star Command Suppliers in Tomorrowland and Emporium on Main Street, U.S.A.
Magic Access Members can also get an exclusive Buzz Lightyear notebook in Star Command Suppliers or Andy’s Toy Box in Toy Story Land by presenting a valid on-day receipt showing net single spending of HK$350 or above in the resort, each Member may redeem once only, while stock lasts. From August 9, Magic Access Members can get a Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters Commemorative Booklet at the Magic Access Member Service Center by presenting their valid membership cards in person, while stock lasts.
Finally, starting from September, Buzz Lightyear will rejoin his friends at Toy Story Land to greet guests!
