A four-time winner for World’s Best Attraction in the Theme Park Insider Awards, The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man sends you on assignment with the web-slinger as he tries to save the city. J. Jonah Jameson’s hired you as an intern at the Daily Bugle, to test its new automated news-gathering vehicle, the SCOOP. But, of course, news breaks and “everything goes terribly wrong,” and you’re soon twisting and spinning around the city as a collection of villains torments you with fireballs, floods, and even a 100-story drop. Don’t worry, though, Spider-Man will swing by to save the day. In 2012, Universal reanimated the ride with a new, 4K high-definition film using Infitec 3D projection technology, allowing designers to add new detail throughout the ride. (Look for Spider-Man creator Stan Lee near the end of your trip.)


The GOOD: This ride set the standard for many of the great new rides we are seeing today. It was truly groundbreaking, and remains an incredible and thrilling attraction. It also has a great combination of practical sets and screens.
The BAD: Not much negative about this attraction. It truly is fantastic.
RATING: This is my favorite ride in Universal Orlando. It is for me in a league of its own with Forbidden Journey, Flight of Passage, and Tower of Terror. 10/10.
Sets the standard for all other dark rides. It's only a touch behind the version in Osaka ONLY because Japan has a double load station which has got to help pump capacity.
Absolutely perfect! There is nothing out there like this incredible dark ride. Starting with technology, it's breath taking 3D-HD graphics is pure eye candy, while great practical effects, and theming give it a good flavor. Still to this day, The Amazing Adventures of Spider Man has never been successfully surpassed or beaten by Universal's competitors. Other than Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey, this is definitely the best dark ride on the planet, and maybe one of the best attractions in the world!
Perfect. The whole experience is just flawless. From the queue to the exit, the world of Spiderman just feels alive. Despite being a screen based ride, the environments felt so real and alive. I truly felt like I was not on a ride; the illusion was flawless. It's among the best rides in the world and is certainly the best Universal has ever produced. 10/10
Perfection. Spider Man was great before the hi- def redo. Now it's awesome. It's just a small notch behind Harry Potter's Forbidden Journey.
Fun ride! It really feels like you're flinging you against buildings and dropping!
Being such a big spider man fan this is a dream to me. I have ridden this ride to many times to count and still I love it more than the time before. It won best theme park attraction in this website like 4 years in a row and for good reason , it's one of the best if not the best theme park attraction I have ever ridden.
I don't know how Universal created such a perfect attraction, but I do know that they have been trying to capture this winning formula ever since with varying results. More importantly than any singular feature of this ride, it just has that Spiderman essence that can be enjoyed again and again. 10/10.
I like the special effects in this, plus it has a very good queue line. Rating: (9/10)
Love it!
This is not only my favorite Universal ride, it's my favorite ride in the world. 20/10
