It’s been a day full of announcements from Disney CEO Bob Chapek, regarding the Avengers Campus coming to Disneyland this Summer. Now, we have more details regarding the Spider-Man attraction. Disney announced that the official name for the new attraction is WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure.
The Los Angeles Times revealed even more details and spoke with an executive creative director at Walt Disney Imagineering. The Avengers Campus is coming to Disneyland this Summer, with an official opening date of July 18, 2020. The attraction, WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure will feature the voice of none other than Spider Man: Far From Home star, Tom Holland!
Brent Strong, an Executive Creative Director with Disney Imagineering told the LA Times, “When you think about Toy Story Midway Mania, it’s overtly a game. We’re coming in to play a game. Here, while it’s absolutely interactive, and has game-like levels to it, you are on a mission with Spider-Man.”
Strong went on to elaborate, “There is a full narrative arc that accompanies the game play of this — the Spider-Bots are getting out of control, they’re flooding across the campus, Spider-Man is concocting a plan with your help to defeat them.”
Disney also released an official description of the attraction:
WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure is a new, action-packed adventure that invites you to put your web-slinging skills to the test!
At the Worldwide Engineering Brigade – also known as WEB – Tony Stark has assembled bright innovators like Peter Parker to invent new technologies and equip everyday people to become Super Heroes. WEB will house the new WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure, the first Disney ride-through attraction to feature this iconic Super Hero.
The mission: team up with Spidey and help capture the out-of-control Spider-Bots before they wreak havoc on the Campus. During an open house at WEB, you will be asked to wear 3D glasses and test drive their latest invention, the WEB Slinger vehicle, which allows you to sling webs like Spider-Man. The attraction will give you a taste of what it’s like to have actual super powers as you help Spider-Man collect Spider-Bots that have run amok!
Keeping in line with creating experiences for families, Imagineers have also said that the ride will have no height requirement. Ensuring that families with children of all ages can ride together!
