Cherry Hill Mall welcomed an influx of heroes, big and small, this past weekend to celebrate Marvel’s 80th Anniversary with Marvel: Universe of Super Heroes presents Super Hero Saturday. Over 600 guests, dressed up in costume, united with fellow caped crusaders for an action-packed afternoon.
Guests had the opportunity to meet and interact with their favorite Marvel characters at the event. Black Widow and Spider-Man brought high-energy to Cherry Hill Mall and shared their super knowledge with super heroes in training.
Super Hero Saturday included activities for heroes of all levels to test and improve their strength. Guests were able to create their secret identity and mask on-site – as every super hero has a disguise. Not only did guests look like heroes, but they had the opportunity to train like them through a Peloton Super Hero Training obstacle course and Train the Brain puzzle activities. In addition, one of the many activities included a sharing wall where visitors wrote down what their dream superpower would be.
The adventure continued with Councilwoman Sangeeta Doshi proclaiming the day, “Super Hero Saturday” in Cherry Hill, NJ and honoring local heroes for their impact on the community. As a thank you to those individuals for their honorable work, they each were awarded a plaque and tickets to the Marvel Universe of Super Heroes exhibit at The Franklin Institute.
