Disney files patent for new SPIDER-MAN ride system in California Adventure?


It was confirmed at this year’s D23 Expo that Spider-Man would be swinging his way into Disney California Adventure.

And now Disney has filed a patent for what will apparently be the new ride system that will be used, according to WFTV. The ride system will freely swing guests like a pendulum, and is attached to the ceiling of the show building. Think of it as an extreme version of Peter Pan’s Flight.

“One goal is designing an experience similar to what it would feel like to be with Tarzan or a similar character swinging between trees of a jungle on a vine or with Spider-Man or a similar character swinging on webs as you move down a city street,” the application states.

The rumor states that Marvel Superheroes will be taking over what is currently Hollywood Land, and that the most likely candidate for replacement is Monsters Inc. – Mike and Sully to the Rescue.  This makes sense, as Hollywood Land is basically Hollywood Studios Lite, and Disney has been trying to diversify its offerings on both coasts.

The unnamed Spider-Man attraction will be joining the hit Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout, a re-themed version of the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror.

I've loved Disney as long as I can remember. As a former newspaper editor, web developer, and Disney comics freelancer, I'm able to combine that experience into writing about Disney online. I'm also the co-host of a Disney fan podcast called 'Pirates & Princesses.' Opinions mine.
