New Details on Hong Kong Disneyland Expansion Unveiled
HONG KONG, February 13, 2018 – Hong Kong Disneyland Resort (HKDL) today released new renderings that provide a sneak peek at the upcoming Marvel attraction coming to its theme park.
The new attraction will be the second Marvel ride-through attraction experience guests can only have at Hong Kong Disneyland. In the new attraction, guests will team up with Ant-Man and The Wasp to fight Arnim Zola and his army of Hydra swarm bots in a thrilling new adventure. This will be part of a multi-year expansion at HKDL that will bring a new attraction or entertainment offering almost every year through 2023, including a Marvel-themed area. The new renderings were revealed to Disney fans from around the world at D23 Expo Japan, which just concluded.
HKDL has become the ultimate hub for exciting Marvel experiences in Asia. Last year, the park opened Iron Man Experience, already the most popular attraction at the resort, which was followed by the launch of “Marvel Super Hero Summer” which immersed guests even further in their favorite Marvel stories with their favorite Marvel characters. In September, HKDL hosted the Marvel 10K Weekend – Presented by AIA Vitality, with record-breaking 10,000 runners from around the world signed up to race through the resort.
Last October, HKDL kicked off construction of the multi-year transformation of the park, with new attractions and entertainment experiences that will bring Disney characters and stories to life through amazing, first-of-a-kind experiences.
The first new experience to be launched will be a brand new stage show, “Moana: A Homecoming Celebration” featuring Moana, the newest heroine from Walt Disney Animation Studios, which is set to debut in Adventureland in May.
Construction has also begun on the transformation of the park’s centerpiece, the castle, which will also feature a new daytime show and nighttime spectacular. The expansion will also add an all-new, immersive Frozen-themed area where guests will experience new attractions and entertainment, including meeting the royal sisters Elsa and Anna.
