A brand new Marvel attraction is set to open at Hong Kong Disneyland this Spring. Ant-Man and The Wasp: Nano Battle! will open in Tomorrowland on March 31, 2019. 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.
Nano Battle is the resort’s second Marvel-themed attraction and the continued development of an ultimate hub for Marvel Super Hero action in the region as part of Hong Kong Disneyland’s multi-year expansion. The new attraction will send guests on a critical mission with Ant-Man and The Wasp who have answered Iron Man’s call for support in defending Hong Kong against Hydra’s attack.
Our story 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 set up to showcase S.H.I.E.L.D.’s latest technological developments. Also in the S.H.I.E.L.D Science and Technology Pavilion is the Iron Man Experience. The story of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Nano Battle! continues the plot already in motion in the Iron Man Experience.
A seemingly ordinary visit is soon interrupted by Hydra attempting to steal the Arc Reactor atop Stark Tower in Kowloon, Hong Kong, while its artificial intelligence Arnim Zola sends an army of Swarmbots to the S.H.I.E.L.D. Pavilion to steal a Data Core with highly confidential information. As he battles Swarmbots in Kowloon, Iron Man calls in Ant-Man and The Wasp to defend the pavilion, because only they can shrink down to get between the bots’ armor to destroy them from the inside.
With thousands of bots and only two of them, Ant-Man and The Wasp call on guests at the pavilion for help. Aboard one of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s newest combat vehicles, D/AGR – the Defense/Assault Ground Rover (aka “the Dagger”) – guests are issued an EMP Blaster and engage in a heroic battle alongside Ant-Man and The Wasp to defeat Zola and his Swarmbots.
The attraction features “Ant-Man and The Wasp” stars Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly reprising their roles, as well as scoring by Christophe Beck, composer for the “Ant-Man” movies. Artifacts and research items from more than a dozen Marvel movies, TV show episodes and comics will also be on display.
