Disney Patent

The latest Disney patent was filed on Thursday October 5th, and the patent description hints at the possibility of a Spider-man themed attraction. The new patent, referred to as a Track-based Swing Ride with Long Arm Pendulum, seems to move guests through a track based ride, while hanging, similar to Magic Kingdom’s Peter Pan attraction, but with the additional element of swinging while moving along the track.

Below is a description of the patent:

“One goal in designing the ride system was to deliver an experience similar to what it would feel like to be with Tarzan or a similar character swinging between trees of a jungle on a vine or with Spider-Man or a similar character swinging on webs between buildings as you move down streets of a city. [The ride is] intended to have swinging sensation provided while also having forward travel along a ride path in a direction of travel and for the swinging sensation to feel thrilling and fun.”

Of course as of now any character themes behind the ride, or even which park it will appear in, is all speculation. With the D23 announcement of the future Super Hero Universe coming to Disney California Adventure Park, it wouldn’t surprise me if the hints within the patent’s description hold true. Although, it was recently confirmed that the new Guardians of the Galaxy attraction coming to Epcot will be a roller coaster; so it’s possible that this patent could be the track system for the new attraction.

Nothing is official until Disney says, but it is certainly fun to guess at what they have in store for their theme parks.
