The recent trailer for Avengers: Damage Control has Ant-Man telling the audience to “Make good choices.”
If you’re already going through the experience, however—an immersive 4-D VR adventure that involves strapping on goggles and a backpack before galivanting around a physical stage full of sensory effects—the joke’s on Ant-Man: you’ve already made good choices by deciding to spend the time and money (18-20 minutes and $39.95, respectively) to suit up and enter the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Avengers: Damage Control is the third time ILMxLAB has used The VOID’s VR platform to create experiences that leverage Disney’s ever-growing swath of IP. The first two—Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire and Ralph Breaks VR—are also immersive and wholly satisfying experiences in their own right (especially the Star Wars one); Damage Control, however, was a year-and-a-half effort that resulted in a longer, more expansive, and more technologically sophisticated adventure.
Read on to learn more about the experience, including whether or not it’s part of MCU canon.

The piece of concept art above revealed guests in individualized seats flying separately through the middle of the action, and when an Imagineer was recently asked to describe the Avengers ride system, he explained that it will be “something that we’ve never seen before.”
