Mattel Adventure Park is still a ways off from opening in Glendale, Arizona, but today’s IAAPA Expo gave us a tease of what’s to come for Masters of the Universe fans. Our friends at Thrill Geek were at the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions event. They posted a video showing off a MotU display telling guests that He-Man Versus Skeletor Laser Tag would be opening in the park next year!

The display featured two lifesize action figures of the classic 1980s versions of He-Man and Skeletor. Behind them stands a mountainous display in the shape of Castle Grayskull. Within the castle’s entrance was a sign teasing the coming upcoming attraction. According to Glendale’s official website, the laser tag arena will take up 4,500+ square feet.

The Expo was not limited to teasers for just Adventure Park. Mattel’s Hot Wheels is also going to be the theme for the new Surf Coaster at Sea World Orlando:

Escapology was also present with a display announcing a Batman-themed escape room coming soon:

It has been a couple of decades since I went to Hershey Park. It turns out that a new coaster is coming to the historic Pennsylvanian-based theme park, too. The IAAPA Expo was the place to see the first look at the Wildcat’s Revenge cars from Rocky Mountain Construction.

A live view of the construction of Mattel Adventure Park kicked off during the Summer. As of right now, a few structures are starting to form. It appears that part of the Crystal Lagoons resort is in the early stages of construction. The elevator shafts are up for one building, and the iron beams for the first two levels of the central resort are up. A 2023 opening date could be very likely, but it may be late into next year before the first guests walk into this latest theme park.

Mattel’s new land will offer the following attractions:

  • Hot Wheels go-karts
  • Thomas the Tank Engine train ride
  • Mini golf themed after various Mattel games
  • UNO climbing structure
  • Barbie’s Flying Theatre
  • Barbie’s Beach House
  • Barbie’s Dream Closet Experience
