When I read a year ago that Disney bought Marvel for $4 billion dollars, I knew sooner rather than later that a Marvel type of ride was going to make its way into the DLR. We first saw signs of this when more Marvel merchandise was making its way into the parks. Iron Man toys here, Thor hammer there; Disney was making use of their purchase as fast as possible and why not? If you spent $4 billion dollars on something, wouldn't you want to get as much use out of it as fast as possible?
Then we got the news this past week that Innoventions is going to be replaced by an Iron Man type of attraction. I was upset when I first read about the news but then I thought about it and this could turn into something very special and bring a lot of great opportunities to Disneyland. Here are 3 reasons why an Iron Man will make a great addition to Disneyland.
