Behind The Scenes – ‘The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man’ – Ultimate Special Effects

Behind the scenes look at The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man featuring attraction concept, planning, testing, as well as video from the ride.

“The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man is a motion-based 3D dark ride located at the Islands of Adventure, Orlando and Universal Studios Japan, Osaka theme parks. Built for Islands of Adventure’s opening in 1999, the attraction is a hybrid ride combining special roving motion vehicles with 3D projection, elaborate physical sets, and both practical and tactile effects.

The ride takes park guests-turned-last-minute-reporters into the world of Marvel Comics’ Spider-Man, and after boarding a Daily Bugle vehicle known as the “Scoop”, the rider learns that the evil Sinister Syndicate has captured the Statue of Liberty with an anti-gravity gun. This evil group is made up of many famous Spider-Man villains, including Doctor Octopus, Scream, Electro, Hydro-Man, and the Hobgoblin.

The attraction took three years to produce, with many new technologies and techniques being developed. The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man has been well received, winning several awards including the Golden Ticket Award for Best Dark Ride for twelve consecutive years.
