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.)

Awesome ride that beats out Flight of Passage for me because I like the story and characters better then Avatar.

Man I hope Disney doesn't pull some legal stuff and get this ride(and all other Marvel stuff) removed, this ride is great! Tons of Marvel villains in it and even Stan Lee shows up!

Until I rode Disney's Flight of Passage in 2017, the Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man was my all time favorite theme park attraction. It is still in the top two, and definitely a must visit for EVERY theme park fan in the world. Simply wonderful. The Amazing Spider-Man has been keeping it real since 1963... and he deserves your time!

Amazing is right. Spider-Man is the best ride at Universal and one of the top two rides in Orlando. (Flight of Passage being the other, in my book.) There's so much to see here that one time on the ride can't possibly do it justice.
