The Marvel Experience is an immersive, Domed attraction that features the world’s first-ever 360-degree, 3-D stereoscopic full-Dome projection theatre. Along with the aforementioned, there is a state-of-the-art, thrilling motion ride and an interactive “training center” that offers the opportunity for Marvel fans to actually become “part of the adventure.”
“Fresh off our smash-hit, extended run in San Diego, we are more energized than ever to bring The Marvel Experience to these major cities in the U.S.,” said Hero Ventures’ COO Doug Schaer and CEO Rick Licht, in a joint statement. “It’s the perfect complement to the huge hit film, Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” as well as Marvel’s “Ant Man” which will be released later this Summer.”
“We have specifically chosen markets known for their passionate fans, which I know personally from my years of producing and promoting in these great cities” said Executive Producer Michael Cohl. “The Marvel Experience will bring excitement and innovation to these great entertainment destinations.”
Produced by Hero Ventures, this first-ever hyper-reality touring attraction will travel throughout the Summer with Fall dates to be announced shortly.
As agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. in training, guests of The Marvel Experience swing with Spider-Man, smash with Hulk, fly with Iron Man and more, all in preparation for an epic battle alongside Marvel’s biggest Super Heroes in a fight against Red Skull, M.O.D.O.K. and an army of evil Adaptoids. The Marvel Experience incorporates next-generation interactive technology including augmented reality and multi-person gaming so you can see yourself in action. Everything happens with bleeding-edge technology and advanced computer animation. There’s nothing else like it. Not only does the audience get to join the adventure, in the end they may even become heroes themselves.
