Treasure Island in Las Vegas opens superhero training ground

Many kids grow up imagining themselves as superheros, but now it’s time to give adults a chance, too. A new Treasure Island experience in Las Vegas will take guests into the world of the Avengers superhero franchise.

Available to all ages, the Marvel’s Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. (which stands for Scientific Training and Tactical Intelligence Operative Network) is an interactive experience that includes an array of props and costumes like Bruce Banner’s laboratory, Captain America’s motorcycle and Iron Man’s suits. Guests are guided into the world of the Avengers, where they are “trained” to become agents of S.T.A.T.I.O.N. They can interact with the various props and experience using a mobile device given out at the start of the exhibit, or through an app available on iOS and Android. Visitors can learn about the heroes through interactive displays and answer questions to test their Avenger acuity.

At the end of the experience, S.T.A.T.I.O.N. recruits can purchase a personalized ID badge for use the next time the world is in danger.  The exhibit is open from 10am-10pm every day. Tickets cost $34 for adults and $24 for children. Kids under 3 get in free, and active military members get 15% off.
