Entering the Daily Bugle, guests are immediately immersed in the daily activities of the newspaper. Guest will view a video in which the company’s good reputation has been tainted. After making their way though the empty offices, a “live” video feed of news coverage, reporting that five super villains, led by Doctor Octopus, have sieged the city by an experimental anti-gravity cannon created by Doc Ock himself. The super villians have stolen the Statue of Liberty and threaten to destroy it if the city does not surrender to them, and it is up to Spider-Man to save the day.

It becomes apparent by the empty offices of the Bugle, that all the reporters have fled the building. The Bugle’s Editor-in-Chief J. Jonah Jameson has been left with no choice but to send the tourists to cover the story using the Bugle’s new Scoop vehicle. After guest get their 3D night vision goggles the “cub reporters” get in the Scoops and leave the loading docks to enter a New York back alley where guest will encounter Spider-Man. You will be so amazed by the detail of Spidey that it really does feel like he is right there with you, as you are even able to see the minute details of the stitching of his gloves. In one scene, Spider-Man will jump on the roof of your vehicle, and the vehicle responds with his movements.

Spider-Man warns guest they are in for the most dangerous night of their life, so they need to be careful and stay close. You’ll follow right alongside the web-slinger, careening and crashing through the streets, scaling skyscrapers and plummeting to the pavement below in a simulated 400-foot freefall.

Whether this is your first time riding or you have ridden it before, with the all new sate of the art 4K high definition film with a 16-channel audio system that makes you feel like your right in the action, these additions to the 3D film has made this ride even more exquisite and detailed. In fact Universal says hundreds of new details and effects have been added.You can see threads on Spider-Man’s suit. You can see rats scurrying in the background. You’ll likely notice things you hadn’t before, whether it’s because the screen is so sharp, or because they simply weren’t there before. This is one ride worth wait.

Height Restriction: Must be at least 40 inches. However, children between 40″-48″ must be accompanied by a Supervising Companion.
