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.)

Don't miss it. I went to all simulators and it is even better than Gringotts (and about 5 hours less of line) 10/10

Incredible! Must-do attraction! The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man is absolutely fantastic... and was made even better with the recent refurbishment. One of the best dark rides of any theme park! 10/10

Perfection. Spider Man was great before the hi- def redo. Now it's awesome. It's just a small notch behind Transformers & Harry Potter's Forbidden Journey.

While I didn't like it on my first ride in '07 (my family wouldn't shut up and I was confused of what was going on), the HD upgrades bring you into the Spider-Man universe and make this ride even better than Forbidden Journey (until when Escape from Gringotts opens).

I'll never forget the fervor when this ride first opened. If possible, it's even better now with the new soundtrack and visuals. Don't miss it! 10/10

The best ride I have ever been on.

After the video and 3D upgrade this may be the best dark ride on the planet.

This revolutionary and legendary ride now looks better than ever. The new hi-def visuals greatly enhance this already awesome ride. This ride is pure fun. This is one of the absolute must rides in Orlando. The queue, music, story, and physical props are all very appropriate for Spider-Man and the ride captures the spirit of the web-slinger very well. Do not miss it.

Before the refurbishment I always rated this outstanding, but since the refurbishment, I give it Perfection. Love this ride and all of the elements and special effects. Always make sure to ride it everytime we to to IOA, which is pretty darn often!
