You will get to shoot webs from your wrists with immersive technology on the new Spider-Man ride coming to Disneyland!
Everyone who has watched or heard of Spider-Man has modeled the infamous web-firing move. Disney’s upcoming Spider-Man ride will give riders the same sensation thanks to new immersive technology! A few Imagineering executives at New York Comic Con revealed that the new technology will give guests the exact feeling of having Spider-Man’s web-shooters on their own wrists. They can put this talent to use as they wrangle a few Spider-bots that have gone rogue.
Marvel’s website posted a video of the recent panel at New York Comic Con where Scot Drake (a creative executive at Walt Disney Imagineering) explained a few more details about the new ride:
“When the mischief that Peter Parker gets in, where Spider-bots are released all over the [Avengers] campus, he needs all of our help. That’s where we step up, we get in these vehicles, and we go on this crazy adventure through all different parts of the campus cleaning up and slinging webs right next to Spider-Man.”
Another write-up from NYCC states that “guests on the attraction will be able to shoot their own webs out of their wrists via immersive technology.” This technology is brand-new so we do not have any more details on how or why it works. Some have speculated that the ride will feature “shooters” Like Toy Story Mania or Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin, but it seems like we will be experiencing something with the Spider-Man ride that has never been done before.
The Spider-Man ride is set to open at Disney California Adventure sometime in 2020 and at Disneyland Paris sometime in 2021
