“The ant man and the wasp woman: the special attack!” opened on March 31
Hong Kong Disneyland Resort (Hong Kong Disneyland) today announced the latest Marvel theme ride “The Ant and the Hornets: Battle Special!” will open on March 31, 2019. This will be the world’s first amusement facility with the theme of ant man and wasp, and the first Marvel-themed ride with a female superhero. I am looking forward to it, “The Ants and the Hornets: The Special Attack!” will be the second Marvel theme project of Hong Kong Disneyland, which will further establish Hong Kong Disneyland’s position as the center of Marvel’s superhero universe Asia.
The world’s first Marvel-themed ride, “Iron Mania Flight Tour”, has been the park’s most popular ride since its opening in 2017. “The ant man and the wasp woman: the special attack!” will take the opportunity to extend its wonderful adventure! In this new ride, guests will shoulder the heavy responsibility of responding to the call of Ironclad and the Hornets and fighting against the evil forces Hydra to launch further attacks in Hong Kong.
Shrinking as ants fight with ant man and wasp girl
This fierce and exciting high-tech interactive adventure began with a visit by SHIELD (S.H.I.E.L.D.) at the newly launched “Spirit of Science and Technology Museum” at Disneyland’s World Science and Technology Exhibition in Hong Kong. An ordinary visit was interrupted because Hydra launched a double attack in Hong Kong and brought a fierce battle. The evil organization Hydra not only sneaked into the Hong Kong Star Building to plunder the string reaction energy device, but also sent thousands of mechanical insect corps from Arnim Zola to invade the SHIELD Science and Technology Museum, trying to steal the data core that stores highly confidential information.
When Iron Man was fighting for Hydra robots in the downtown area of Kowloon, he decided to convene the ants and the wasps to defend the SHIELD Science and Technology Museum, because only they could shrink and sneak into the body from the gap between the mechanical insects and destroy them. In the face of thousands of mechanical insects, the ant man and the wasp woman urgently need help. Guests at the “Shenzhen Science and Technology Museum” were immediately called to join the operation. The guest sat on the newly developed “Assault” chariot of the SHIELD, equipped with an electromagnetic pulse gun, and engaged in a battle of justice, alongside the ant man and the wasp woman, defeating Arnim Zola and his mechanical insect army.
Dale Sheehan, Walt Disney’s fantasy project creative director, said: “We are very excited about the extraordinary journey of this ride to continue the “Iron Mania Flight Tour” and bring further progress to Hong Kong and global Marvel fans. The Marvel experience. The ant and the wasp female are very popular with the weird and funny superheroes. We are eager to lead the fans into this multi-dimensional interactive experience, and feel the dynamics of the game and the humor of the two superheroes.”
