In 2019, Disneyland Paris permanently closed its version of Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster to make way for a brand-new attraction — An Iron Man-themed coaster!

Disneyland Paris originally announced plans for the upcoming Iron Man coaster at D23 Expo Japan 2018 and is set to be part of the new Marvel-themed land at Walt Disney Studios Park. The only details shared by Disney executive Bob Chapek at the time was that the upcoming coaster will be “a high-speed, hyper-kinetic adventure where Guests will team up with Iron Man and their favorite Avengers”.

Now, thanks to DLP Report on Twitter, we can see construction continuing on the show building theming for the Iron Man-themed coaster, despite Disneyland Paris being closed to Guests due to the pandemic.

DLP Report also spotted some of the old elements of Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster. Even though the attraction closed to make way for the upcoming Iron Man-themed coaster, the train chassis are expected to remain the same!

At this time Disneyland Paris — home to both Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios Park — remains closed due to the pandemic. The Paris Resort originally reopened to Guests on July 15, 2020 following its first closure, but theme park officials made the decision to close for a second time in October due to French government regulations, with an original anticipated reopening date of February 13, 2021. However, in January, they decided to push that anticipated reopening date back to April, again due to French restrictions.

In March 2021, that date once again got pushed back due to “prevailing conditions and travel restrictions across Europe”, and the Disney Park does not have a new anticipated reopening date at this time. Inside the Magic will keep you updated as we get information surrounding Disneyland Paris and the upcoming Iron Man-themed coaster.
