Marvel characters will soon be seen in their first Disney theme park attraction. Hong Kong Disneyland will debut an Iron Man attraction in Tomorrowland in 2016. The attraction is set up like guests are entering the Stark Expo, and they will see the progression of the Iron Man suits, as well as other inventions by Tony Stark.

Chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, Tom Staggs, wrote an article for the Disney Parks Blog explaining the new ride. His description says, "Upon entering the ride vehicle our guests will be able to take flight with Iron Man on an epic adventure that not surprisingly pits Iron Man, and our guests, against the forces of evil. This adventure will take place in the streets and skies of Hong Kong, which will make an even more unique and special experience for our Hong Kong Disneyland guests. In addition, guests will be able to meet and take photos with Iron Man."

Staggs continued by saying, "As I've often said, one of the greatest things about Disney is the treasure trove of characters and rich stories we have to draw upon for the immersive experiences we provide our guests around the world. With Marvel joining the Disney family in 2009, our character and story base grew even further, and the anticipation for how Marvel comes to life in our parks and resorts continues to energize our guests and cast."
