As expected Disney has changed the Avengers Campus opening date from July 18th to “Coming Soon” on its website. With the extended park closures it was becoming quite obvious that Disney would have to do push back the opening date as everything in the land still has a considerable amount of construction left.
The Spiderman ride is farther along than the rest of the project though, so Disney may try and do a phased opening by just opening Spiderman and the gift shop and then the rest of the land at a later date. Assuming the parks open in June, I can see Spiderman opening up by July or August and the rest of the land opening up by September or October.
Are you excited for this land? Will you be visiting when it opens or will you wait until there is a vaccine for the virus to go visit the parks?
Hello everyone, welcome back to another Theme Park Wizard update! Today I will be going over some photos from @bioreconstruct on Twitter of the Disneyland Resort that he shot last week. Definitely go visit his Twitter account for awesome aerials of places and theme parks mostly in Orlando, but occasionally out here as well, so let’s get started!
Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway
As you can see in this fantastic shot, land clearing and site prep is well underway for the attraction just north of Toontown. The size of the show building is actually larger than Toontown itself. By the time Spring comes we should be seeing this building going vertical, the attraction is slated to open in 2022.
Starting from the top of the land and moving down you can see one of the two plazas near the Parade Route and the Spiderman attraction under construction. Moving down you can see the narrow walkway in between Spiderman and the WEB Suppliers gift shop leading to the more central part of the campus. This is the main dirt area that will house the Avengers Logo, the Doctor Strange show, and Pym Foods. This will also lead to the Avengers E ticket when it opens in a few years.
Lastly, we have a fresh look at Tomorrowland. As you can see most of the rocks are removed and the only thing that remains under construction walls is the E.E.R building that controls the audio effects for the Astro Orbitor. More work is rumored to be coming to this area and the rest of Tomorrowland this Spring, so it will be very interesting to see what happens.
Well that is all for today’s Disneyland Resort update! Comment below what you think of the ongoing projects at the resort and what are you most excited for?
So part of my goal on this blog is to document updates from theme parks that may not be all that big or well known except to local populations of coaster enthusiasts in an effort to be unique and give these smaller parks some more exposure. So today I am going to give you all a construction update from the Primordial coaster coming to Lagoon in Utah in 2020.
Lagoon is a theme park in Farmington, Utah which is about 18 miles to the north of Salt Lake City. It is relatively little known but the coaster pictured above (Cannibal) made the park famous. Cannibal is the steepest coaster in the country and an elevator transports the coaster cars to the beginning of the track.
Check out Lagoon’s website for all of the fun coasters and attractions at the park. Lagoon is keeping their latest coaster project pretty under wraps even though it is under construction, but someone on Youtube made a video of what they think the coaster can look like based on permits filed with the city.
As you can see in the video this coaster is expected to incorporate interactive shooter dark ride elements combined with coaster segments much like Escape From Gringotts at Universal Studios Florida. Below are a couple of construction photos of the progress.
I think this is going to be a very cool and interesting coaster and might even get me to go visit this park next year when it opens. What do you guys think of this coaster? Have you ever heard of or been to Lagoon before? Comment your thoughts down below!
