Rumors are circulating that a brand new Marvel-themed roller coaster is closing after only being opened for a few weeks due to poor reception from Park Guests.

Called Avengers Assemble: Flight Force, the “E-Ticket” attraction took up residence in the building that once held Rock’ n’ Roller Coaster with Aerosmith at the Disneyland Paris Resort and opened to the public in Walt Disney Studios Park with the rest of the latest Avengers Campus to be built at a Disney Theme Park. It starred Iron Man/Tony Stark and Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel, and while it appeared to be simply a retheme of the same super-fast indoor roller coaster, it still carried great expectations.

However, the reception of the new ride is apparently so bad that a rumor is circulating that says Disney Parks executives are looking to pull the plug on the project.

According to OutsideEars, 

Our sources interviewed, who also expressed their disappointment with the quality of the adventure well before the opening, tell us that this failure would be due to a lack of budget. They tell us that the management of Disneyland Paris, project owner, was alerted several months ago and would have been slow to react. One of them tells us “that it is not time to settle your accounts anyway, but to find solutions to improve the attraction as quickly as possible”.

Please keep in mind, readers, that this is still just a rumor at this point, and it should be taken with a grain of salt. We at Disney Fanatic will continue to monitor the story, and we will provide any updates as they appear.
