1. Unleash your inner superhero at Avengers Assemble @ Shiseido Forest Valley
Kick off your action-packed journey at the Shiseido Forest Valley. Here, you’ll find seven Marvel-themed photo spots that will transport you into the world of the Avengers. At the North entrance, be greeted by none other than Iron Man himself, standing at a staggering height of 5 metres.
Next, marvel at the ginormous 3D displays featuring Captain America’s virtually indestructible Vibranium Shield and Thor’s mighty Mjolnir, reaching heights of 3 metres and 3.5 metres, respectively.
But the adventure doesn’t end there. Test your strength against The Incredible Hulk – the Hulk-Out-Meter allows both adult and kid superhero-wannabes to measure their strength. It’s your chance to battle against the indomitable Hulk!
Fans can also engage in mystical battles alongside Doctor Strange, claim the throne as the Black Panther, and experience the incredible shrinking powers of Ant-Man and the Wasp.
2. Witness the evolution of Marvel Avengers at Avengers Forever @ Canopy Park
Next, go on a nostalgic journey through 60 years of Marvel Avengers history and learn amazing Avenger fun facts. From their humble beginnings in comic books to their triumphant rise in television, toys and blockbuster movies, this exhibit pays tribute to the enduring legacy of The Avengers.
