Next year, fans will get their chance to act out superhero fantasies with The Marvel Experience, a new interactive ride, which receives its world premiere Jan. 9- Feb. 1. at the Cotton Bowl.
The Marvel Experience is a large ass dome that houses a computer animated simulator that lets players fight alongside Marvel heroes such as Spider-Man, Thor, Capt. America and the Incredible Hulk as they fight off a wave of "Adaptoids," Red Skull and MODOK. The ride incorporates "next-generation interactive technology" including augmented reality, multi-person gaming and RFID progress tracking. It also tracks each players' score turning the ride into a giant video game that lets them become part of the show. The entire experience also takes place in a 360-degree environment providing full immersion for the players as they blast their enemies out of the sky.
The touring attraction will also feature a life size model of the Avengers' Quinjet and other Marvel artifacts and replicas. It's like walking into the head of a hardcore comic book fan without performing some kind of illegal medical experiment utilizing some battery cables and an Oculus Rift.
