Marvel theme park sus­pends sum­mer tour

Cape Breton Post - - ARTS / ENTERTAINMENT -

NEW YORK - The in­door high­tech trav­el­ling theme park “The Marvel Ex­pe­ri­ence” has stum­bled and will cut short its sum­mer tour. 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 can­celled. Re­funds will be avail­able. No rea­son was given for the show's abrupt can­cel­la­tion. It's another black eye for co­pro­duc­ers Michael Cohl and Jeremiah J. Harris, whose “Spi­der-Man: Turn Off the Dark” was a costly fail­ure on Broad­way. Hero Ven­tures, a Los An­ge­les-based en­ter­tain­ment com­pany, and Marvel En­ter­tain­ment also pro­duced the tour. The $30 mil­lion show had pre­vi­ously made stops in Phoenix, Dal­las and San Diego be­fore be­ing re­tooled for the cur­rent run.
