Avengers Campus is the newest land at Disneyland Paris. It opened officially on July 20th, 2022. We attended the press and annual pass-holder previews as well as regular opening days. So we’ve gained a lot of great experiences to share with y’all. Now in order to really get into it we are going to go into great detail here so, spoiler warning.
Avengers Campus Concept
Avenges Campus at Disneyland Paris is a new themed land in Walt Disney Studios Park. It’s based on the popular Marvel movies and series in the so called Marvel Cinematic Universe or MCU. Imagineers came up with a storyline for the land that fits in the universe without harming consistency. In order to have multiple characters come together Imagineers came up with the idea of a hero centric campus. A space where the next generation super heroes are recruited and trained.
The in-universe story is that Tony Stark, the man behind the Avengers and inside the Iron Man suit, created campuses around the world to recruit Disney Park’s guest’s. That means there are more Avengers Campuses around the globe, not just Paris. There’s currently a campus at Disneyland Resort Anaheim and the Marvel area in Hong Kong Disneyland.
More campuses could follow in other Disney Parks in the future. It’s a worldwide campus network and the story goes that Tony Stark uses the former Stark Factory grounds from his father, Howard Stark, to create them on. Park goers will find a lot of industrial architecture and references to the old Stark Factory. Which once created automobiles and other technologies.
During the press conference Imagineers emphasized that they have 2 ways to create an experience. A: In story, that’s what you’ll experience here at Avengers Campus Paris, as you become part of the story as a recruit. B: Celebration of a theme, like Marvel is celebrated at the Hotel New York: The Art of Marvel, where we have an art gallery of superheroes.
This in story experience means that cast members and characters will talk to you as a super hero recruit. Thanks for saving the world, thanks for saving the campus, and so on. Classic meet and greets also don’t exist in this space. Disney has decided to call them Heroic Encounters or Training Sessions. Many of these Heroic Encounters take place at the dedicated Training Center.
Avengers Campus Paris is Filled With Awesome Details
There is so much to look at and to explore! Massive set pieces we love include the Quinjet, which is the Avengers jet. Next to F.R.I.D.A.Y.,the Quinjet acts as the lands weenie, the eye catcher, of the land. We also love the industrial aesthetic in general. Park goers can even spot a defunct rail track going from the Star Factory (quick service restaurant) to Spider-Man W.E.B. Adventure on the other side of the road.
Those nearly hidden details to the old factory ground are neat. Smaller details we love include Peggy Carters office in the Stark Factory. Peggy Carter used to be an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., a counter terrorism organization from the Marvel movies. She became director at some point and S.H.I.E.L.D. apparently used the Stark Factory in Paris as a cover up. Her office is full of details including a map with the last know location of Steven Rogers a.k.a. Captain America is highlighted.
Another Marvel goldmine is the food truck that is located across from the Super Diner, the former Café des Cascadeurs restaurant. The food truck is covered in marvel memorabilia. As if the food truck drove across the world to visit the other campuses. One of the recurring faces on the food truck is actually Beth Clapperton, the lead creative from Walt Disney Imagineering at Disneyland Paris.
One of our favorite and hard to spot details was the giant PYM particle disk which features another miniature PYM particle disk on one of its ends. If you are a thrill seeker keep an eye out in the queue of Avengers Assemble: Flight Force. There is a section which features a giant LED screen playing a video of Iron Man trying to recruit other Avengers to help out with the Kree missile crisis. A small contact card pops up featuring Wade Wilson a.k.a. Deadpool which clearly states “do not affiliate”. This is pretty hilarious if you are familiar with the Deadpool film franchise and the characters naughty anti-hero antics.
Two New-ish Attractions
Let’s start with Avengers Assemble: Flight Force. This is a re-skin of the former Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster avec Aerosmith roller coaster. Disneyland Paris has kept the old ride track in place, re-themed the attraction and gave the building a huge architectural upgrade. Not a totally new attraction, but definitely a re-invented one.
The LED-facade of Avengers Assemble: Flight Force looks very futuristic and truly feels Tony Stark. The LEDs and supportive audio represent F.R.I.D.A.Y., the Artificial Intelligence developed by Tony Stark. F.R.I.D.A.Y. talks to recruits with messages throughout the day and also interacts with the live entertainment. Starlord activates playlists through F.R.I.D.A.Y. for the Guardians of the Galaxy Dance Off. That’s pretty cool, although I wish that there was more real interactivity and better visibility during bright daylight.
Recruits team up with Iron Man and Captain Marvel to save our world from an intergalactic Kree missile crisis. That’s basically the story as told in the pre-show by an impressive fully electric Iron Man audio animatronic and Bree Larsons Captain Marvel on several screens. The animatronic is perhaps the attractions highlight. Recruits then board one of Stark Industries’ hypersonic vehicles to blast off and help save the world.
Flight Force is a high speed indoor rollercoaster that includes several inversions. The minimum height is 1.20m (3.9ft) and Single Rider as well as Premier access are available.
The large screen featured in the Avengers Assemble: Flight Force queue is by Samsung, it’s from thier “The Wall” series. The large scale LED screen is able to display 4K and HDR video viewable at almost any angle. It’s a magnificent screen which retails at about about €900.000.
It seems that most of the budget was invested in the queue and exterior because the ride itself is dark, not just dark, pitch black for the most part. Except for a few blinking LED lights during the launch and at the end of the ride, it mostly consists of an entirely black show building with a few minimal projections. The 3 or 4 projections are nearly impossible to make out due to the speed of the roller coaster and the rough nature of the ride. Rough describes the ride experience pretty well, this is a rough roller coaster. They did not upgrade the restraints, so we are stuck with the same old uncomfortable Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster restraints. Why didn’t you install the ones from Hyperspace Mountain Disneyland Paris?
The on board audio mix is pretty good, with a story thats easy to follow. However, theres so much going on in the soundtrack that is not reflected visually anywhere in the show building. In all honesty it’s a huge disappointment to me and unlike the queue and exterior which are a massive upgrade. I would consider the ride experience itself a downgrade. At least with the Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster there were physical sets and lights. You could orient yourself spacially which let you physically prepare for curves, inversions and drops. That made the ride experience more pleasant since you could prepare your body against the incoming g-forces. Whereas now they take you by slightly painful surprise.
Flight Force is not our favorite thing in Avengers Campus. Rumors are floating around that Disneyland Paris executives as well as Bob Chapeck and Josh D’Amaro (Chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences and Products) were disappointed in the overall quality of the new ride experience. According to the latest rumors Walt Disney Imagineering and Disneyland Paris are already working on plussing the attraction by adding more screens, refining the projections already in place and adding various new effects.
All of the above would be very welcome. Physical sets inside the attraction would be a dream come true but we’re pretty sure that will remain a dream. While no refurbishment date has been announced in regards to Avengers Assemble: Flight Force 2.0 rumors have pointed towards the 2023 off season (January to March). According to sources the attractions low show quality is to blame on an insufficient budget. Apparently Disneyland Paris had been informed of the issue ahead of time but was unable to react in time.
We asked a friendly cast member where exactly the entire story is supposed to take place, spoiler alert it is supposed to be in outer space. Then why don’t we have any sort of star projections or fibre optic star-lighting like in Space Mountain or Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind? Not only would it clarify where we, the recruits, are currently located but it would ease up the black monotony of the ride experience and add a sense of orientation.
The attraction also features several PhotoPass kiosks by the exit. The touch screen based systems enable park goers to select their photo and then save it to their PhotoPass or purchase a print. These worked great during the annual pass-holder previews but have since been having issues like slow loading times, crashing, etc.. When the PhotoPass kiosks do work they are great. When they work out the kinks the kiosks will likely be a time saver.
To end on a positive note, the design of the trains is very cool. Especially the light up propulsion blasters in the rear of the vehicle. Which light up during boarding and launch. Also the lighting package after embarkation, when the vehicle moves out of the station and sound design are pretty cool. However, our Avenger Campus highlight is the new Spider-Man W.E.B. Adventure which surpassed all of our expectations.
Spider-Man W.E.B. Adventure is a completely new attraction for Disneyland Paris. Built in the space that once housed the Armageddon – Les Effets Speciaux show – or attraction… whatever it was.
Recruits of all ages can join Spider-Man in this action-packed adventure. Peter Parker – played by Tom Holland in the impressive multi layered pre show film – developed cute little Spider-Bots. But something goes wrong, of course. They keep multiplying and create chaos on the Avengers Campus.
That’s where we come in. The open house of W.E.B. (Worldwide Engineering Brigade) where we are gets canceled and we are enlisted to help Spider-Man catch all Spider-Bots before they cause total chaos.
Spider-Man W.E.B. Adventure is an interactive and competitive family attraction. The pre show is mostly in French with English subtitles. In the queue you can hear audio sequences in various popular European languages, like Dutch and German, recapping the main story. A smart decision on Disneys part.
The ride itself is really fun, even after the 15-20 times we’ve done it. You have to use your hands to sling (virtual) webs at Spider-Bots/objects in order to trap or destroy them. It’s like a huge computer game with stereoscopic screens. Park goers do wear 3D goggles and scores are displayed on small screens in the high-tech ride vehicle. The vehicles feel a bit like a futuristic subway system, really impressive.
We were surprised by how much we enjoyed Spider-Man W.E.B. Adventure. The attractions surpassed all of our expectations. Especially in regards to the ride experience. Until riding W.E.B. Adventure ourselves we had only seen ride through videos of the counterpart in California. The experience honestly looked a bit underwhelming in the videos, sort of like Toy Story Mania 2.0. Alas ride through videos are never the same as experiencing the attraction for one self in person.
The interactive element is an integral part of the ride experience. The screens also completely fill your field of vision with crystal clear projections. Riders are completely immersed in the moment. We also appreciated the few physical sets Imagineering included. There weren’t many but most folks will be having so much fun blasting the Spider-Bots that it doesn’t feel like it’s missing anything.
The queue and ride is also filled with fun details to look out for. The first thing many will likely notice when entering the building is the delicious freshly poured concrete/new attraction smell. How we missed that scent at Disneyland Paris.
One of our favorite details in the pre-show was the “Gear Grabber” machine. Each egg inside the machine contains random items provided by Walt Disney Imagineers in Paris. The pre-show’s Musion effect of Peter Parker was well done. Consisting of four planes of depth, the scene did not appear to be flat.
The scene also featured a bunch of physical “work shop” props towards the front. The primary Musion layer featured Tom Holland as Peter Parker, a shelf projected onto a physical cut out was placed behind that, and last but not least a wall projection which also featured several moving elements such as an in costume Spider-Man. Also look out for the physical Spider-Bot figures towards the end of the ride. They may be trapped in Spider-Man’s web, however their legs are still slightly moving, which is a really fun detail.
Single Rider access is available on Spider-Man W.E.B. Adventure and Premier Access will be added in the future.
Spider-Man W.E.B. Adventure Language Situation
We love the Spider-Man W.E.B. Adventure pre-show room and presentation. However, we’re not big fans of Tom Holland getting a French dub. Tom Holland has such a unique style of humor. While the physical comedy remains, especially the part where he comes out too early or freaks out about calling “Mr. Stark”. A lot of the humors gets lost in translation, especially for those who don’t speak French.
The subtitles featured on the LED screen just can’t convey the humor of the original. The LED screen can also be tough to see since it’s positioned kind of low. We would love to see one of the two pre-show rooms in English and the other in French. That way it’s by luck of the draw which one you get and if you ride multiple times theres a good chance you get to experience it in you preferred language.
If we’re already pitching ideas a variety of ride scenes like in Star Tours, with changing locations/scenes would be so cool and would further increase re-rideability.
There’s a lot of entertainment to experience in the streets of Avengers Campus Paris during the day. Expect to see characters and performances until 6 p.m.. Imagineers conceived the experiences to happen organically throughout the day. Disneyland Paris does not post time schedules, so just stick around and keep your ears and eyes open.
Let’s start off with “The Amazing Spider-Man”. A stunt show performed on the rooftops of Spider-Man W.E.B. Adventure. Spider-man shows off a bit while performing acrobatics from high up.
“Avengers Unite!” features Taskmaster as the main antagonist and some goons who got into the Avengers Campus. The Avengers are not having any of it, so Black Widow, Black Panther and Spider Man spring into action. The show features entertaining fight choreography on top of the Mission Equipment shop.
“The Heroic Welcome” features a bunch of Avengers who congregate on the Quinjet platform to welcome us (the new recruits). This could feature multiple Avengers however we’ve experienced variants with just one Avenger waving to us. Iron Man, Black Panther, Black Widow, Captain Marvel, Captain America, Dr Strange… and who knows what characters could visit in the future .
The last 2 mini-shows take place in front of the Avengers Assemble: Flight Force facade, across from Stark Factory (quick service restaurant). The first show is titled “Warriors of Wakanda”. General Okoye and her warriors, who protect the Black Panther, train us in an interactive piece of entertainment.
A totally different mini-show is Guardians of The Galaxy: Dance Challenge! We get to see Star-lord and Gamora in a fun dance-off with recruit involvement. The classic music form the Guardians of the Galaxy mix tapes let’s park goers in Avengers Campus rock out for a moment. Similar to the pre-campus show during the Marvel Season of Super Heroes in Walt Disney Studios Park, but without Groot.
That cover the entertainment portion of Avengers Campus Paris. Theres a lot, most of it pretty good quality. Nothing’s too long and it’s a fun and casual way to see the heroes. Besides that Marvel characters will just walk around Avengers Campus or arrive in the futuristic Avengers Deployment Vehicle or ADV. Which is very cool and ads a further dynamic element to Avengers Campus.
One thing to keep in mind is that all of the entertainment takes places outdoors. So if it is too hot, wet or cold the shows will likely be modified or cancelled all-together. We were there during the 40 degree (104 Fahrenheit) heatwave and most of entertainment was cancelled. By not announcing any official show times crowd management is a lot more bearable and brings some spontaneity back into the Disney parks. Something they’ve lost a little in the last 20 years or so. With all the Premiere Access, pre-booking, reservations and before that FastPass. At the end of the day we thought entertainment in Avengers Campus was super fun and we love that Disneyland Paris included it in the new land.
Super Hero Meet and Greet Opportunities
There are four ways to experience characters in Avengers Campus. Firstly you can spot heroes strolling through the streets of Avengers Campus as well as the rooftop shows. Both of which usually don’t enable photo opportunities with you favorite hero.
Secondly, you can spot and meet characters while they driving by in the Avengers Deployment Vehicle. Just like with the entertainment, there are no set times in the program. We’ve spotted Thor, Loki, Iron Man, Black Widow, Black Panther, Captain America, Dr. Strange and Captain Marvel.
The portal near the entrance of Avengers Campus enables park goers to casually line up for meet and greets. We’ve hung out with Ant-Man and the Wasp at the portal. They are usually not together, so it’s an either or type deal. Recently Groot has been spotted in the portal as well so who knows what the future will bring.
Lastly, the Hero Training Center is fancy indoor meet and greet location with a PhotoPass option. So far we’ve spotted Spider-Man, Iron Man and Captain Marvel in the Hero Training Center. In order to meet characters in this location you need to make a reservation through the Disneyland Paris app.
Open the map in the app, choose to see the character meets, tap on the Hero Training Center, and follow the prompts. Time slots open throughout the day at 10 a.m., 2 p.m., and 5.30 p.m.. Be sure to double check in the app on the day of your visit. You can also choose one out of two characters but be quick, reservations fill up quickly. It’s best to set an alarm a minute before the reservation slots open to make sure you don’t miss the booking window.
The glass covered Hero Training Center lights up in blue at night. It also looks great inside and out. Insight you will find a sleek waiting area consisting of a few benches and some colorful Avengers Poster art on the walls. The space feels clean and minimalistic. Some folks have been saying they’ve entered the funeral of Tony Stark. To us it feels more like a sleek airport terminal.
Huge windows let you spot the Avengers Deployment Vehicle if you happen to be there at the right time. When it’s your turn, the cast member behind the podium will grant you access to the inner queue. Be sure to keep an eye out for the heroes futuristic blue lit lockers and the transparent OLED display. The latter of which enables park goers to look into the space with the hero and see other park goers meet, uh… train with, her/him/them. The window features minute motion graphic elements on it that appear to show random data. It adds a bunch of kinetic energy to the space. Each hero also rocks a matching background and prop.
A PhotoPass photographer can take your pictures. You can also take your own photos as well. That’s not all though, you can also create a short video while posing with your hero. Several cameras have been built into the wall and they all take a photo at nearly the exact time. Together they form a small Matrix bullet time style video that can be added to a PhotoPass Premium. Taking the Matrix style video photo is interesting. You are asked to hold still while focusing on a certain point in the room all while hearing several camera shutters go off in short succession. Those are 15 EUR more than the standard PhotoPass.
Alternatively you can get it on a paper PhotoPass and purchase/download the video afterwards. In the exit area are PhotoPass touch screens to view, download and purchase photo files. We met Iron Man and he looked fantastic. It was a bit difficult to have a conversation with Iron Man because of the pre-recorded voice. However, Iron Man did sound almost exactly the same as in the films and it was cool that we could talk to him at all.
The 15 EUR price tag is too steep for what you get in our opinion. If it has to be an additional charge 3-5 EUR feels more appropriate for that short 10 second clip. Just like in Avengers Assemble: Flight Force, PhotoPass kiosks are located by the exit. We were a bit confused on wether or not we would have to scan our PhotoPass again to actually get access to the files. Turns out you can just leave once the cast member by the character has scanned it.
Mounds of Marvel Merchandise
Disneyland Paris did a great job in terms of merchandise. There’s lots of exclusive merch available that you can only find in Avengers Campus. Currently, there are three places where you can purchase Avengers Campus merchandise. Everything can be found in the land’s primary store that is centrally located by the plaza with the Quinjet, called Mission Equipment.
Park goers also exit Spider-Man W.E.B. Adventure through Mission Equipment. It’s a large store that has been nicely designed. The shelves near the exit of Spider-Man W.E.B. Adventure carry a lot Spider-Man merch as well as several props, including Spider Bots just underneath the ceiling. It feels warmer then the rest of the shop that takes a more minimalistic/futuristic approach. Really it feels more like Avengers Assemble: Flight Force. Which makes sense since that’s also where park goers will find merchandise discovered by the attractions as well as generic Avengers branded items.
Furthermore, park goers can purchase merchandise at a small kiosk with limited offering. Located near the entrance of Avengers Campus. The former Photo Point boutique in the Front Lot of Walt Disney Studios Park also offers a limited selection of Avengers Campus merchandise. The Photo Point Boutique is located on your right when entering Walt Disney Studios Park.
We purchased a remote controlled Spider Bot. It’s larger than expected and features light and sound effects. You can also buy themed covers/skins for the Spider Bot. These include: Iron man, Black Widow and Black Panther. The optional skins not only give your Spider Bot a new look but also different powers. Two or more Spider Bots can battle each other and “blast” each others tops off. At 70 EUR per Spider Bot they are expensive but also very cool. The covers/skins come in at 25 EUR per cover.
Besides all of the great merch in the Mission Equipment shop, be sure to keep an eye out for some of the props on the high shelves. Many a fan of Armageddon: Les Effets Spéciaux will recognize several pieces which have been salvaged from the now defunct attraction.
To conclude, new merchandise is being added to the shops on a frequent basis. Including clothing, funkopops, bottles, magnets, pins, figurines and more.
Heroic Nourishment a.k.a. Food
There are currently five places to get snacks or meals in Avengers Campus. Which is a lot considering this is the notorious (for limited food options) Walt Disney Studios Park. Let’s briefly touch the food outlets one by one. Our complete in-depth review of the PYM Kitchen buffet restaurant is available as a Patreon Exclusive bonus. Listen to it now here.
Let’s start with the W.E.B. food truck. Expect to find asian noodle soups, coconut balls, ice cream, sodas and Asian beer. In this case W.E.B. doesn’t stand for Worldwide Engineering Brigade but for Worldwide Eating Brigade. The noodle soup is available with tofu, chicken and shrimp. The shrimp version we tried tasted fine, don’t expect the world, it’s a still theme park fast food. However, we love that park goers can finally get asian inspired food inside the parks. The coconut balls or atomic balls as they are officially called, consist of egg yolk in a jelly like dough with coconut rasps. The balls are then quickly heated in a microwave. Definitely an interesting thing to try but they wont become our favorites.
There’s also a 2nd food truck, known as the FAN-Tastic food truck. It’s serving Tony Stark’s favorite New York-style hotdogs (also available as a plant-based dog), cheesecake on a stick, ice creams and sodas. The cheesecake is a favorite of ours and the hot dog is just as good as the one from Casey’s Corner in Disneyland Park. The FAN-Tastic food truck also serves cute Spider-Man, water based popsicles.
Stark Factory, a high-tech facility for superhero gear also acts as a counter service restaurant. This place is serving pizzas, pastas and salads to hungry recruits. The Italian inspired food selection is likely a NYC Little Italy reference. Just like the Asian Food truck refers to China Town.
We tried the quinoa salad with tofu. It wasn’t anything special but good enogh. The two pizza were pretty good, both are freshly prepared at Stark Factory and the portions size is great. These are definitely a step up from the quick service pizzas served in Disneyland park.
A Thor inspired dessert is also available. It’s basically cake that consists of some kind of soft chocolate and caramel mousse. We enjoyed the Thor inspired desert. Stark Factory also offers pastas, sodas and ice creams, however the selection is rather limited. Coffee and tea machines are availabe in the restaurant. Park goers can pay directly at the machine by card.
Stark Factory also consists of various dining rooms. Each room has its own unique theme. The main dining room is themed to a former factory. Peggy Carter’s office is also there and is full of cool details. Park goers used to be able to sit at Peggy Carter’s desk to take photos but it has sadly been roped off. If you want to know where the Imagineers found inspiration for Peggy Carters office, check out the first episode of Agent Carter on Disney+. It comes in at the 3 minute and forty five second mark.
Moving over to the next dining room, a former Strategic Scientific Reserve Bunker. It’s all brick walls, with neat signage details. The SSR presented here was later absorbed into S.H.I.E.L.D., so a link to the past. Imagineer Jim Shull also shared that the concept for this room was that it also served as a storage area and could serve to contain dangerous materials. The wear and tear on the walls serve as evidence. The primary dining room also features the Mark XLIV Iron Man Armor, better known as the Hulkbuster. The suit is a true eye catcher and a great prop to take a picture with.
PYM Kitchen is the buffet restaurant of Avengers Campus. It offers a huge variety of food at size-defying scales, prepared using PYM Particle ‘shrink and grow’ technology. As seen in the Ant-Man film franchise. You definitely need a reservation to dine at PYM Kitchen, it’s also the only restaurant that offers the option to reserve a table in Avengers Campus. In the Patreon exclusive show we talk all about this fun but pricey buffet restaurant.
Last but not least is the former Café des Cascadeurs. Disneyland Paris has completely restored it and brought it back as Super Diner. The silver diner is impressive, it’s a real, imported retro mobile American diner that now serves reuben sandwiches. These come in the form of a meat and a veggie option, for both adults and kids. Super Diner looks better than ever, it has been fully renovated and received a nice terrace area as well.
Overall we’re happy with the wide food, beverage and snack selection available in Avengers Campus. Not every dish is a must have, however there are several good food options available.
We could write a whole book about Avengers Campus. Even if you’re not a Marvel fan, you can still enjoy the theming, design, atmosphere, entertainment and rides at Avengers Campus. It brings a new themed area to Disneyland Paris which is a major plus. Even though we know Avenger Campus is not all it could have been due to budget cuts and direction shifts. As fans and connoisseurs of Disneyland Paris we have to ask ourselves, is it better than what was there before? Is it an improvement? We think so and it’s worth seeing and experiencing Avengers Campus for yourself. The entire area just hits different when you are actually standing in it and are completely immersed in the land. For the most part we would consider Avengers Campus a success with a bit of room for improvement. Congratulations on this fabulous new land Disneyland Pairs!
Disneyland Paris has cut 4 (out of 5) pieces of entertainment/shows in Avengers Campus, Walt Disney Studios Park from the program. When park goers open the official Disneyland Paris Mobile App, the will no longer be able to spot the following shows on the map/list: The only remaining piece of entertainment in Avengers Campus is…
There are a plethora of mistakes one can make when visiting Disneyland Paris. Which could result in a less than optimal visit. While any trip to Disneyland Paris carries a certain degree of fun, there are several mistakes one can easily avoid to make the best out of a day in the parks. Simple things…
Now that we’ve entered the low season, work on Disney Village 2.0 is in full swing at Disneyland Paris. The closure of Café Mickey, Planet Hollywood and King Ludwigs mark the first big steps in the overhaul of the shopping, dining and entertainment district. According to OUTSIDEARS (Link to original Twitter post in French) construction…
