Marvel Experience Has Closed, Chicago, New York And St Louis Shows Cancelled, Refunds Being Sent Out

When the Marvel Experience touring event launched it had… teething troubles. Quite a lot of them. And did what most companies do when faced with criticism, deleted them from Facebook. Still, some clearly had a good time. And Kevin Smith helped with the advertising.

But it seems to have been caught short, with dates in Chicago, meant to start on July 11th, as well as New York, and St. Louis later in the year, have been cancelled as the show has closed in Philadelphia. Organisers Hero Ventures promise they will rescheduled. Hmm.

Refunds will be send out today. If you haven’t received one, organisers Hero Ventures say you should contact the place you bought the ticket from…

 

This is what it was… and who knows, may one day be again…?

The Marvel Experience is an immersive, Domed attraction that features the world’s first-ever traveling 360-degree, 3-D stereoscopic full-Dome projection theatre. Along with the aforementioned, there is a state-of-the-art, thrilling motion ride and an interactive “training center” that offers the opportunity for Marvel fans to actually become “part of the adventure.”

As agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. in training, guests of The Marvel Experience swing with Spider-Man, smash with Hulk, fly with Iron Man and more, all in preparation for an epic battle alongside Marvel’s biggest Super Heroes in a fight against Red Skull, M.O.D.O.K. and an army of evil Adaptoids. The Marvel Experience incorporates next-generation interactive technology including augmented reality and multi-person gaming so you can see yourself in action. Everything happens with bleeding-edge technology and advanced computer animation. There’s nothing else like it. Not only does the audience get to join the adventure, in the end they may even become heroes themselves.
