Marvel is living high on the hog these days, with their movies dominating the superhero genre like never before. This success is good for faithful Marvelites, who get to surround themselves with their favorite superfolk, but success can also breed overconfidence.
The Marvel Experience is the latest example of what happens when a company takes advantage of their fan base, and people are downright disappointed with what they’ve spent their hard earned money to see.
Here’s what fans expected to see at the Marvel Experience:
The World’s First Hyper-Reality Tour is a first-of-its-kind, hyper-reality attraction that covers over two acres and encompasses seven colossal Domes, a life-size Avengers Quinjet, the world’s only 360-degree, 3-D stereoscopic full-Dome attraction and a state-of-the-art 4-D motion ride.
Unfortunately, the real Experience falls hopelessly short of the mark, and seems to have been released before the attractions were prepped, tested and made ready for the public.
After the travelling event debuted in Scottsdale, Arizona, a fellow by the name of Jake Gold left a detailed review of all that is wrong with the Marvel Experience on Yelp, stating:
Let me start by telling you what they got right – the story is good and relies on comic book lore that goes a little deeper than the cinematic universe. There is one moment near the end that genuinely brought a smile to my face which I won’t ruin for you, and the staff seemed like they genuinely wanted to help. However, none of that can make up for the complete disorganization and technical malfunction we experienced.
Will Marvel clean up their act and get the Experience ready before continuing on its nation wide tour, or are they content with milking the popularity of their movies by selling more tickets to this science fiction sideshow?
