To make the season even more special, HKDL’s newest Marvel attraction, Ant-Man and The Wasp: Nano Battle! opens on March 31, 2019, welcoming guests on a high-tech, high-energy interactive adventure fighting alongside Ant-Man and The Wasp. Along with exceptional dining, shopping and accommodation experiences at the park and three resort hotels, this year’s Springtime celebration at HKDL promises to be the most spectacular yet for Thai guests!
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 further affirms HKDL as Asia’s epicenter of Marvel action. 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. The adventure begins with a visit to the S.H.I.E.L.D. Science and Technology Pavilion, a newly opened facility at Stark Expo in Tomorrowland. The visit is soon interrupted by Hydra, who has initiated a two-pronged Swarmbot attack in Hong Kong to steal the Arc Reactor atop Stark Tower in Kowloon and a Data Core at S.H.I.E.L.D. pavilion. As he battles Swarmbots in Kowloon, Iron Man calls in Ant-Man and The Wasp to defend the pavilion. But with thousands of bots and only two of them, Ant-Man and The Wasp will need help – and guests at the pavilion are called into action! Aboard one of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s newest combat vehicles, guests will be shrunk to ant size in a heroic battle alongside Ant-Man and The Wasp to defeat Zola and his Swarmbots.
Created with classic Disney storytelling and close collaboration with Marvel, Ant-Man and The Wasp: Nano Battle! is a highly authentic and engaging Marvel experience. 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, the stars of “Ant-Man and The Wasp,” 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.
