The Marvel's AVENGERS S.T.A.T.I.O.N. (Scientific Training and Tactical Intelligence Operative Network) is a completely immersive experience that brings visitors into the world of The AVENGERS. Marvel's AVENGERS S.T.A.T.I.O.N. is an interactive exhibit experience that allows visitors to participate in a simulated recruitment as if they were being trained as agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
"This is a real game changer in the exhibition world," said Sean Haran, VP of Business Development at Marvel Entertainment. "By teaming up with Victory Hill Exhibitions, we are bringing all of the excitement of the big screen into an incredibly engaging experience that allows people to really delve into and explore the world of the The Avengers," continues Mr. Haran.
Visitors of all ages are granted S.H.I.E.L.D. access to the official S.T.A.T.I.O.N. headquarters and taken deep into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Here they will have open access to a vast array of intelligence files, classified studies and experiments that explores the history and scientific origins of Marvel's The Avengers. Visitors will also be given unprecedented access to some of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s most highly guarded artifacts such as Captain America's Birth Pod, the Tesseract Portal Device, Loki's Scepter, a hermetically sealed Chitauri and more, recovered after the Battle of New York.
"To work so closely with the Marvel team on this incredible production, alongside some of the greatest scientific individuals and institutions in America, has been a real honor. With this exhibit, we are seamlessly integrating story and science to create a truly immersive edutainment environment, set within Marvel's Cinematic Universe," states Nicholas Cooper, Victory Hill founder / Chief Creative Officer.
NASA, the Science & Entertainment Exchange (a program of the National Academy of Sciences), Neuroverse, and Thwacke are all collaborating on the Marvel's AVENGERS S.T.A.T.I.O.N. Exhibition visitors will get the chance to map out the stars to find Asgard, learn to operate Iron Man's suit, witness the neurological effects of Bruce Banner's transformation into the Hulk, and physically test themselves against Captain America.
"We are thrilled to be bringing this exhibition, based on Marvel's world renowned entertainment franchise, to life at Discovery Times Square. To provide fans the opportunity to experience The AVENGERS universe through this immersive exhibition is a great pleasure and a continuation of our efforts to bring people closer to the stories and entertainment properties that they love," states James Sanna, President of Discovery Times Square.
