More about Spider-man as it appears it needs some help - which surprises the heck out of me.
For those who are teetering on the edge, I have compiled a list of comments from this site to support the fact that Spider-Man is the best theme park attraction in the world.
Spider-Man is original, immersive, amazingly well themed, fun, repeatable, and...is one attraction that receives praise from both coaster and theme ride fanatics across the board. Even Amusement Today (a publication devoted to iron ride parks like Cedar Point) acknowledges Spider-Man as the best dark ride in the world. - James Rao.
[Spider-Man is] the best ride in the country. [It] is absolutely amazing. Everything about the ride is awesome. The theming and effects are great...Spider-Man is the best ride in Orlando and is deserving of all of its positive hype. The indoor queue area is nicely themed...and the sensation of driving and flying the streets of New York City fighting Spidey villains are realistic and fun. This ride is worth coming to Orlando by itself and is an absolute must ride. Lines for this are pretty long but who cares, this ride is worth any wait. - Manny Barron
An all-around outstanding attraction, with an immersive environment, strong story and enough detail to entice you to ride again and again. One of the world's top attractions... and not to be missed. - Robert Niles
The Amazing Adventures of Spiderman would win over any other ride I have been on so it got my vote. It is just so different to any other ride I have experienced by virtue of the great 3D effects. - Emily G
Spidey is number one. I doubt anything can top it. I'm backing it for the number one spot this time. - Adrian Walker
...come on - Spidey swing to the final four. - Joshua Counsil
Spiderman - This one's a no-brainer...how could anyone vote against the greatest ride on the planet? - John Jackson
The fact that Spiderman rides on a flat slab and coordinates 3-D film and moving set pieces makes it a miracle of modern theater. The spinning sequence into the steam tunnel is fantastic, as is the final climactic fall and the blazing "guitar army" version of the Spidey theme that closes the attraction. - TH CREATIVE
Spiderman...is special. Few rides incorporate the senses like Spiderman does, and when it comes down to it, I would just rather have Spiderman in my park...Was and still is a groundbreaking ride...Spiderman is one of the few themed rides out there that stacks up against the best coasters. - Derek Potter
Spiderman all the way. It's just such a great attraction. - Michael Owen
I can go on Spider-Man again and again and always discover something new, whether it be in the detailed queue or the ride itself. - Brian L
Spider-man...is still the best ride at Universal and the most technologically advanced ride on earth (ten years later on top of that). Anyone who can't recognize its greatness has no business commenting. It would be like calling Thunderhead an average woodie. Spider-man's early exit from this competition would truly be a sign of the apocalypse. - Raul Araoz
Spider-Man is just an incredible ride. And it hurts that it is up against my favorite B&M inverted, but for best ride and total immersion - I have to give it to Spider-Man. - Todd Houts
Without a doubt, and without peer, Spider-Man is still the best ride in North America. - James Rao
If y'all don't [vote] Spider-Man into at least the final four, I'd seriously consider wiping out the site's registration database, banning everyone here and starting over with a new crop of readers. ;-) Or, at least, inviting only the ones with the good sense to recognize Spidey's greatness. - Robert Niles
If you still have doubts...please go ride Spider-Man again. Kraken is a great coaster, but Spider-Man is one of a kind.
