Bangkok (27 June 2018): For the first time in Southeast Asia, tourism and cutting-edge technology come together to give you ‘Digital Hyper Reality’ in ‘The Marvel Experience: Thailand’, the most state-of-the-art Themed Entertainment Attraction located over more than 20,000 square meters at Megabangna.
‘The Marvel Experience Thailand’ is established to help battle the villains who plan to cause mayhem in Southeast Asia, particularly the city of Bangkok. The Marvel Heroes are ready to set up the Command Center, led by Director Nick Fury, where everyone can train to be an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. and join forces to fight the villains with Marvel’s mightiest heroes: Captain America, Iron Man, Spider-Man, Black Widow, Wolverine, and The Hulk among others.
‘The Marvel Experience Thailand’ is divided into two main zones: The Reception Building and The Attraction Zone.
The Reception Building includes the ticket office, Avengers Café, Super Hero Snack Bar, and the Marvel Adventure Zone for kids. The Marvel Experience Super Store hosts an extensive range of Marvel licensed products, including an exclusive selection of ‘The Marvel Experience Thailand’ merchandise. The Holding Zone Beta is the prepping area before the future agents head into battle in the Attraction Zone. This is the active zone where S.H.I.E.L.D agents young and old can join a full two-hour battle alongside the Marvel Heroes in a combination of Immersive Hyper Reality, state-of-the-art interactive and multimedia technology games, and augmented and virtual reality simulations. It’s an awe-inspiring experience, which also includes a 4-D Motion Ride, a 360-degree 4-D stereoscopic projection Dome as well as the chance to come face-to-face with Marvel heroes.
