Thankful for Spiderman at Universal Orlando Resort

Universal Orlando ResortUniversal Orlando Resort has some amazing roller coasters and of course there are always going to be favorites.   One of my all-time favorites is the Spiderman ride located in Universal’s Islands of Adventure.  As part of my job this year, I had the opportunity to ride all of the amazing rides at Universal Orlando Resort for their agent training program. Since next week is Thanksgiving I started to think about all the things I am thankful for and I have so many things to be thankful for! One thing I am really thankful for this year is my job and all the amazing experiences that come along with it. I walked away from my Universal training with two rides that stood out as ones I would want to ride on each and every visit to the Universal Orlando Resort theme parks. One is in Islands of Adventure and one is in Universal Studios.

Today I share with you the details of the Spiderman ride at Universal Orlando Resort. As you begin the ride you are thrown in the middle of a story where the villains have stolen the Statue of Liberty and it’s up to Spider man to save the day. You get to follow along side of Spiderman like his right hand partner careening and crashing through the streets, scaling skyscrapers and plummeting to the pavement below.

This ride was the first ever combination of moving, motion-based ride vehicles, 3-D film and live action. This simulator ride’s set is about 1.5 acres including a virtual 400 foot freefall experience.   When Universal Orlando Resort opened, The Amazing Adventures of Spiderman it was considered a huge technological achievement because it combined 3-D film, ride movement, and special effects for the very first time.  The Spider Man ride is now over 10 years old and is still and amazing experience that I want to experience again and again. In 2012 Universal Orlando Resort gave the ride and overhaul to update and keep the ride current for its guests and they added new HD effects. At the end of the ride there is even a cameo of Stan Lee himself, so avoid the urge to keep your eyes shut so you can see it for yourself!
