Ant-Man and The Wasp: Nano Battle! is an accelerated shooting dark ride at Hong Kong Disneyland that opened on March 31, 2019.[1][2] The attraction is a replacement of Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters, using the same infrastructure and ride system but is instead based on Ant-Man and the Wasp.

It is the second attraction to be opened as part of the park’s multi-year expansion from 2018 to 2023.[3]

History

On November 22, 2016, the Walt Disney Company and the Hong Kong Government announced plans for a multi-year, HK$10.9 billion[4] expansion of Hong Kong Disneyland. The proposed expansion includes Arendelle: World of Frozen, Stark Expo Hong Kong, Castle of Magical Dreams, multiple new attractions, and live entertainment.[5][6][7][8][9]

Summary

This high-tech, high-energy interactive adventure begins with a visit to the S.H.I.E.L.D. Science and Technology Pavilion, a newly opened facility at Stark Expo in Tomorrowland set up to showcase S.H.I.E.L.D.’s latest technological developments.

A seemingly ordinary visit is soon interrupted by Hydra attempting to steal the Arc Reactor atop Stark Tower in Kowloon, Hong Kong, while its artificial intelligence Arnim Zola sends an army of Swarmbots to the S.H.I.E.L.D. Pavilion to steal a Data Core with highly confidential information. As he battles Swarmbots in Kowloon, Iron Man calls in Ant-Man and The Wasp to defend the pavilion, because only they can shrink down to get between the bots’ armor to destroy them from the inside.

With thousands of bots and only two of them, Ant-Man and The Wasp call on guests at the pavilion for help. Aboard one of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s newest combat vehicles, D/AGR – the Defense/Assault Ground Rover (aka “the Dagger”) – guests are issued an EMP Blaster and engage in a heroic battle alongside Ant-Man and The Wasp to defeat Zola and his Swarmbots.

Trivia

  • The word “Nano” refers to the fact that the audience is shrunk down to ant size, or nano-scale proportions.
  • The Destroyer Armour Prototype Gun that Phil Coulson used to confront Loki Laufeyson with in The Avengers is on display as an artifact in the waiting area.
  • Stan Lee may not have made a cameo, but his name and birthday are hidden beside the ride as a tribute to him. This is because Stan Lee died on November 2018, four months before the attraction opened.
