I took my six year old and two year old sons to the Avenger Station at Discovery Zone this weekend. The older one had just gotten a good report card so I wanted to do something special; he has seen the movie and likes comic books, so he was really pumped when I told him the plan. Boy, was he...

Right off Times Square you have to expect the tourist traps and gimmicky restaurants and attractions. This is no exception, although somewhat cool, it was sort of touristy and boring at times. We visited here to see the Avengers exhibit and they usher you into a so called S.H.I.E.L.D station where you are issued a credit card and you can... More

Cute set up and viewing. You played along with the training. Exhibits were cool and very interactive. Pretty good entertainment if you loved the movies, and your a child, preteen or teen.

We didn't go with kids, but it was entertaining. It would be a great place to take kids who like the avengers. It is an interactive exhibit that's pretty fun. We visited because we had an all-inclusive pass. If you don't have a pass, it is $27 for adults and $19 for kids. There was a delicious cupcake store in... More

On a wet day in manhattan we decided to visit here to try and dry off. We got our "ID cards" and headed around each exhibition for the marvel characters. We are big avengers fans and it was good to see the costumes and some of the props but the side activities using computers were really poor. Many of them... More

I visited in Nov 2014, as we were staying nearby and we got free entry with NewYork Pass. We did the Marvel Anvengers Station, which basically several interactive 'tests' to see how you measure up to Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk, etc. Good fun.

I got an email saying that they were discounting the Avengers Times Square Exhibit and that movie was a huge thing with my kids. We expected the exhibit to be very interactive but most things didn't work well and, honestly, were boring. It was nice to see some props from the movie, but that isn't worth the cost or the...

The avengers thing was not good. Extremely boring. If you go, I recommend doing the Body Worlds, not avengers. Maybe kids would like it but I doubt it.

We wanted to love the Avengers exhibit, but it's very disappointing. There are a bunch of fancy looking machines that either don't do anything, or they do something that's unimpressive, or they are broken. Want to move Iron Man's hand? Well, 1 in 20 people were able to get the machine to work. There really was nothing good to take... More
