Spider-Man, Iron Man and the Hulk are hitting the road.

Hero Ventures, the company behind the new live-action road show featuring favorite Marvel comics characters, revealed the first four stops on their “Marvel Experience: The World’s First Hyper-Reality Tour” at New York Comic-Con on Thursday.

Designed with the aid of concept artist Aaron Sims, who worked on “The Incredible Hulk,” “The Amazing Spider-Man” and “X-Men: First Class,” the show covers more than two acres and encompasses seven colossal domes, a life-size Avengers Quinjet, the world’s only 360-degree, 3-D stereoscopic full-dome attraction and a state-of-the-art 4-D motion ride.

The “Experience” will preview in Phoenix from Dec. 12-Jan. 3, 2015, before officially premiering in Dallas on Jan. 9.

The attraction will come to California in February 2015, opening Feb. 7 in San Diego at the Domes at Del Mar Fairgrounds, where it will run through Feb. 22. Afterward, it will travel north to San Francisco, opening at the Domes at AT&T Park on Feb. 27.

The show is then expected to return to the East Coast. It will play for roughly three weeks at each location.

Tickets go on sale Friday and will be available exclusively through Ticketmaster.
