Disney Parks’ first Marvel-themed ride, Iron Man Experience, made its grand debut at Hong Kong Disneyland today.

The ride-through attraction and interactive experience takes guests soaring through the skies of Hong Kong, as they follow Iron Man in his battle against Hydra, the terrorist organisation of the Marvel universe.

In addition to the 3D flight simulator thrill ride, visitors can also explore Iron Man’s latest high-tech innovations in four exhibition halls, before meeting the superhero himself.

Today’s grand opening ceremony of the Iron Man Experience was officiated by Leung Chun-ying, chief executive of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, and Bob Chapek, chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts.

“We are always pushing the boundaries of creativity and innovation so that our guests can step into the magical worlds of their favourite stories and meet their most beloved characters,” said Chapek.

“We’re thrilled to be adding the high-tech, action-packed universe of Marvel to Hong Kong Disneyland, and we’ll continue building on it as we move into the resort’s next phase of expansion.”
