Ant-Man and the Wasp in Hong Kong Disneyland
Hong Kong Disneyland already has one of the first Disney park Marvel attractions, but it will get a second one. Ant-Man and the Wasp will fight Hydra bots in a new attraction. And guests will be fighting alongside them. So, it looks to be an interactive attraction (that my guess is taking up where Buzz Lightyear is at).
Disney Parks Blog has released an artist concept of the Marvel area that the Ant-Man and Wasp attraction will be in. It will also incorporate the current Iron Man Experience attraction open at the park. No exact date of completion was said, but it will be by 2023 when the multi-year expansion will be completed with more attractions around the park.
