CEO Bob Chapek dedicates Avengers Campus at Disney California Adventure

Disney CEO Bob Chapek unveiled Avengers Campus Wednesday night during a ceremony at Disney California Adventure Park. The new land opens to the public at the Disneyland Resort on June 4, 2021.

In a live-stream event to dedicate Avengers Campus, Chapek was joined in front of Avengers Headquarters by Disney Parks, Experiences and Products Chairman Josh D’Amaro and Marvel Studios President/Marvel Chief Creative Officer Kevin Feige.

“Just as Avengers come together for the common good, the Disneyland Resort is ready to power up with Anaheim and Southern California to drive tourism, rebuild businesses and strengthen our communities,” said Ken Potrock, president of the Disneyland Resort.

The new land was designed by Walt Disney Imagineering in collaboration with the teams that guide the Avengers franchise.

In the land’s new attraction WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure, guests put their web-slinging skills to the test, a feat accomplished with innovative technology adapted specifically for this attraction.

While donning 3D glasses, guests test drive the WEB Slinger vehicle, which allows them to sling webs like Spider-Man and experience what it’s like to have super powers. Featuring no height requirement, this family-friendly attraction blends physical sets and virtual environments to take new recruits on an interactive adventure.

To experience WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure, guests are required to join the virtual queue, only accessible via the Disneyland mobile app.

At WEB Suppliers, the WEB Power Band, a WEB Tech accessory, allows guests to customize their experience on WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure and change their powers on the attraction. Guests may purchase this base band, which features a special mode that unlocks multi-fire webs aboard the attraction to customize the gameplay.
