‘The Marvel Experience’ Has Been Downgraded To A One-Night-Only Event

Way back in 2013, the news hit that a high-tech traveling theme park the size of two football fields — dubbed “The Marvel Experience” — was being put together by the producers of Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark.

This super-hero cavalcade of awesomeness — which visited Phoenix, Dallas and San Diego in its original run — featured all sorts of bells and whistles. These including 360-degree projections, Marvel characters in hologram form, and a frickin’ 4-D motion ride.

After a bit of retooling, the show was set to hit the road again to invite more fans to “step into hyper-reality,” but THR reports this hyped up theme-park experience has been downgraded to a one-night only event:

Producers of the show that includes 360-degree projections, holograms and a 4-D motion ride said Sunday its big debut in Philadelphia will be its one and only stop. The Chicago, New York and St. Louis legs have been canceled.

While no reason has been given for the show’s abrupt cancellation, speculation may point to producers Michael Cohl and Jeremiah J. Harris, as their previous Broadway outing was a huge failure.
