Disneyland Paris has hosted a soft opening of its new Avengers Campus Paris, ahead of its opening to the public on 20 July.

Forming part of a €2bn ($2bn, £1.69bn), multi-year expansion of the resort, the Avengers Campus is the first-ever Marvel-themed universe in Europe.

It features two new themed rides – Spider-man W.E.B. Adventure and Avengers Assemble: Flight Force.

The latter is a reimagined version of the original Rock and Roller steel coaster built by Vekoma that opened at Disneyland Paris in 2002.

It will see guests board a Stark Industries hypersonic vehicle, strap themselves in and blast off for an "epic adventure full of twists, turns and loops".

The Spider-man W.E.B. Adventure is an interactive screen ride – similar to the Web Slingers: A Spider-Man Adventure ride at Disney California Adventure.

Avengers Campus also includes a Hero Training Centre, where visitors can hone their super powers; and Stark Factory, where guests can explore the innovations of Tony Stark.

Other themed experiences include restaurants and bar concepts and "photo opportunity zones", where guests can snap themselves with their favourite character.

Guests will also be able to try their hand at creating their own comic art at the Marvel Design Studio.

There is also a themed hotel, called Hotel New York – The Art of Marvel.

The hotel has been designed as a New York art gallery and is the first hotel in the world dedicated to Marvel art.

It houses one of the largest publicly-viewable collections of Marvel artwork, with 350 pieces of art by more than 100 artists. Much of the art has been made available to view in the Jack Kirby Legacy Gallery, named after trailblazing comic book artist Jack “The King” Kirby.

Avengers Campus Paris is the second of three Avengers-themed lands to open across Disney parks globally. The group opened Avengers Campus at the Disneyland California resort in Anaheim on 4 June 2021. (To read more, click here.)
