Hong Kong Disneyland continues to grow with the announcement of its newest attraction coming in 2016, Marvel’s Iron Man Experience. This marks the first time since Disney acquired Marvel four years ago that an attraction based off a Marvel character has been announced.

Tom Staggs, Chairman of Disney Parks and Resorts, made the announcement on the Disney Parks Blog:

Audiences around the world have been captivated by the amazing inventions and innovations of Tony Stark and we’re basing this experience within a piece of the Stark Expo. Located in Tomorrowland at Hong Kong Disneyland, the Expo will allow guests to see firsthand the progression of Tony’s Iron Man suits and many other Stark innovations.

Upon entering the ride vehicle our guests will be able to take flight with Iron Man on an epic adventure that not surprisingly pits Iron Man, and our guests, against the forces of evil. This adventure will take place in the streets and skies of Hong Kong, which will make an even more unique and special experience for our Hong Kong Disneyland guests. In addition, guests will be able to meet and take photos with Iron Man.

The Marvel Iron Man Experience is scheduled to open at Hong Kong Disneyland in late 2016.

Looks like nothing more than Star Tours re-themed ! Very disappointing for the fist attempt at a Marvel Attraction !!!

I would hope it would be similar to Spiderman/Transformers at Universal…
