Fans who could not get enough of Ant-Man and The Wasp on the silver screen can now experience what it is like working alongside them in a superhero adventure at Hong Kong Disneyland’s newest ride — Ant-Man and the Wasp: Nano Battle! — opening March 31.
The ride will start with a visit to the S.H.I.E.L.D Science and Technology Pavilion, a newly opened facility at Stark Expo that showcases the latest in S.H.I.E.L.D’s technological development. The visit is soon interrupted by Hydra who has launched an attack on Hong Kong using their Swarmbots, headed by Arnim Zola (Captain America: The First Avenger) himself.
As he fights to defend Kowloon, Iron-Man enlists the help of Ant-Man and the Wasp to help defend the pavilion as only they can shrink small enough to get in between the bot’s armour to destroy them.
With a swarm of bots to defend against and only two of them, Ant-Man and the Wasp calls on the visitors of the Pavilion to help them defeat Zola and his army of Swarmbots.
Marvel Studio’s Head of Visual Development Andy Park recently shared a video last month with a message from Ant-Man and the Wasp themselves. The pair mentioned how much fun they have had filming for the ride but assure fans that they will have even more fun experiencing the ride for themselves.

Ant-Man and the Wasp Nano Battle ride coming soon to Hong Kong Disneyland! I loved working on the film & was equally as excited to do a little work on this ride (I ❤️ Disneyland). The bulk of the amazing work was done by the talented folks at Walt Disney Imagineering. I was just honored to help out here & there. Ride opens March 31, 2019. I’m jealous of all you Hong Kong residents!! #waltdisney #disneyland #waltdisneyimagineering #antmanandthewasp #antman #wasp #avengers #themepark #paulrudd @evangelinelillyofficial @disneyland @hkdisneyland
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Nano Battle! is not only the first ride in the world to feature these two superheroes but also the first Marvel-themed ride to feature a female superhero in the lead role. Though we can sure expect more once Captain Marvel comes out. For more sneak peeks, you can take a look at the video below.
