Marvel fans young and old can live out their superhero fantasies at the newly launched Avengers Campus.
The Super Marvel-lous new attraction at Disneyland Paris
Self-delusion is my superpower. Since childhood, I have diligently tended dreams of swooping gracefully between skyscrapers, clad in skin-tight red and blue Spandex like Peter Parker.
The fantasy is real this morning as I furiously flail limbs at a giant video screen, magically shooting webs from my wrists at malfunctioning arachnid robots in the newly opened Avengers Campus at Disneyland Paris.
My spider senses should be tingling. Instead, lactic acid burns unforgivingly in my upper arms and sweat slakes my furrowed brow. With great power comes great exhaustion.
Part video game and part interactive dark ride, Spider-Man W.E.B Adventure is a centrepiece of the Marvel-themed expansion to Walt Disney Studios Park, which exists outside of the Marvel Cinematic Universe timeline.
