Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man

  • Amusement Park/Water Park

Fodor's Review

Already one of Universal's most popular attractions, when it was retooled with high-def animation it became even more of a must-see. The experience combines moving vehicles, 3-D film with the highest-definition resolution available, simulator technology, and special effects. After donning 3-D glasses, you board a special car that will pitch and roll as you get swept into weird all-encompassing cartoon battle. How weird? When Spider-Man lands on your car, you feel the bump; when Electro runs overhead, you hear his steps. You feel the sizzle of electricity, the frigid spray of water from Hydro Man, and the heat from a flaming pumpkin tossed by the Hobgoblin. No matter how many times you visit, you cringe when Doc Ock breaks through a brick wall, raises your car to the top of a skyscraper, and then releases it for a 400-foot free fall. The bizarre angles and perspectives really do make you feel as if you're swinging from a web. Do not miss this one. Youngsters accustomed to action

TV shows should be fine, but timid kids won't. Not recommended if you're pregnant or have heart, back, or neck problems. For people with disabilities: Equipped for assisted-listening devices. Guests using wheelchairs must transfer to a ride vehicle. Come early or at dusk—or most definitely head to the single-rider line. Be sure to check out the wanted posters of Spider-Man villains on the walls.
