New York, NY – June 22, 2015 – Hero Ventures has announced that The Marvel Experience: The World’s First Hyper-Reality Tour will bring its unique brand of immersive fun and excitement to New York City’s Park Avenue Armory for a thrilling three week engagement as part of its 2015 Summer Tour. The Marvel Experience’s New York Engagement will begin Thursday, August 13 and continue through Sunday, August 30.
The Marvel Experience’s 2015 Summer Tour will include stops at four of the top markets in North America. In addition to New York City, the tour will also play Philadelphia, Chicago, and St. Louis, with dates announced through September 20.
The Marvel Experience allows Marvel comic book and movie fans to join forces with some of the world’s most beloved Super Heroes in a place where the real world and imagination become one. Having played just three stops on its inaugural tour to date, The Marvel Experience has garnered rave reviews, including:
“A fully immersed action adventure that is 100% hands on and fun for all ages…If you like comics, if you love technology, if you like FUN, this is a must-see, must-experience event. You simply won’t be disappointed.”
– The Arizona Republic
The Marvel Experience is an immersive, Domed attraction that features the world’s first-ever traveling 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.”
“When we began piecing together our summer tour, we knew that we had to hit New York City,” said Hero Ventures’ CEO Rick Licht, who was raised in Brooklyn and Long Island. “We couldn’t be more excited to provide this live experience to New Yorkers in the wake of the current success of Marvel’s ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ and the anticipated success of Marvel’s ‘Ant-Man,’ which will be released later this Summer,” added COO Doug Schaer of North Jersey.
“We have specifically chosen cities known for their passionate fans, which I know personally from my years of producing and promoting in these great cities,” said Manhattan based Executive Producer Michael Cohl. “There is simply no place in the world more exciting to present live entertainment than here in New York City.”
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.
Tickets for The Marvel Experience are available exclusively through Ticketmaster (www.ticketmaster.com).
