Back in the 1800s, Phineas Taylor “P.T.” Barnum founded the traveling Barnum & Bailey Circus, forever entering legend as one of the greatest American showmen with his collection of freaks, wild animals, and daredevils. Now, Marvel Comics is looking to bring that same spirit of thrills and chills into the 21st century with the Marvel Experience, a touring superhero extravaganza!
If you’ve ever wanted to jump into the worlds of X-Men, Spider-Man, and The Avengers, the Marvel Experience promises to deliver a “4-D” multimedia event with animated, live-action, and interactive entertainment. Tickets are on sale already and the show begins on December 19.
The 140,000 square foot complex will include 7 interlocked domes that are 60-feet high, and Marvel hopes to have you running inside of them with fan favorites like Wolverine and Captain America. The high-tech “tents” will have everything from virtual reality to moving rides with wind and water effects. The creators of the Marvel Experience hope to offer a “hyper reality” plunge into the excitement of comics brought to life.
