Ah, summer. Visions of frolicking in the sun, getting away from it all. Why not consider ticking off Hong Kong Disneyland (HKDL) from your bucket list this summer? It’s nearby, the weather is perfect (spring time), seats are on sale and you would be getting your money’s worth if you do as HKDL has a bevy of activities lined up in March— perfect for your summer getaway!
Shrink to ant size and fight alongside Ant-Man and The Wasp
Calling heroes of all sizes! Set to open on March 31, the long-anticipated Ant-Man and The Wasp: Nano Battle! expands the epic adventure of Iron Man Experience, and it will be the world’s first attraction featuring Ant-Man and The Wasp, as well as the first Marvel-themed attraction featuring a female Super Hero as a lead character.
The new attraction will send guests on a critical mission with Ant-Man and The Wasp to defend Hong Kong against Hydra’s attack. Watch the preview here:
Director of Ant-Man and The Wasp, Peyton Reed and the movie production team were on board to film the media for the attraction; Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly joined the action by reprising their roles; and Christophe Beck, composer of the Ant-Man movies, also created the score for the attraction. The immersive, media-rich storytelling is enhanced by cutting-edge scenic illusion technology and a state-of-the-art gaming system used to create an exhilarating, interactive experience.
