The Spider man has always been one of my all-time favorite superheroes. And there's a good chance it will be yours too. Therefore, the The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man It's one of my favorite Orlando attractions.

It is also known among Brazilians as the Spider-Man simulator. No wonder, that's exactly it.
But anyone who thinks it's a common simulator is wrong! I'm pretty sure you've never seen a simulator like this before.
I was really excited to talk about this attraction here on the blog. Honestly she is one of my favorite attractions in ALL orlando!
Despite being a relatively old attraction and even considered outdated, its immersion and interaction is really incredible!
But to be honest 100%, the appeal of attraction is not just Spider-Man. After all, there's a reason the toy has won the Golden Ticket Awards 12 years in a row.
But, what's up, what's this attraction like? Is it really worth setting aside a time for The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man when you're at Islands of Adventures? Let's see in this article!
How is The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man?
Disney's have "analog" attractions, with little digital stuff. Everything there is "real", the result of the company's incredible engineering work.
Universal's already use and abuse digital and practical effects, mixing styles to create new things.
This difference is very clear in The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man. This attraction is a mix of dark ride with 3D projection, practical effects, physical locations and moving vehicles.
That is: it is something very different from the standard theme parks. Perhaps that is why it is so successful.
In summary, the attraction puts visitors in the role of last-minute reporters for the Daily Bugle, JJ Jameson's newspaper and where Peter Parker usually works in the comics.
As newly hired journalists, the visitors' job is to cover the attack by a group known as the Sinister Syndicate, who captured the Statue of Liberty with an anti-gravity weapon.
This group features villains such as Doctor Octopus, Electro and Hobgoblin. Of course, Spider-Man shows up to take on the villains and the visitors are caught in the middle of the fray.
The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man Queue
The attraction, like practically all of Orlando, has an interactive queue to lessen the impact of waiting for so long to have fun.
The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man queue simulates the Daily Bugle base. We start with videos that introduce the paper and its new vehicle, the Scoop. This is where users will be during the attraction.
As we walk down the line, we pass through the empty Daily Bugle newsroom and see the live news of the villains' attack on the TVs. It becomes clear that all of the local journalists have fled, and when we find JJ Jameson, he is left with no choice but to hire all of the participants to fly the Scoop and cover the case.
In the ride from the
As always, we won't spoil the attraction, but the adventure with Spider-Man is incredible.
We meet the hero right off the bat, but it doesn't take long for the group of villains to show up. We pass through the New York Underground, the Hudson River and other famous places. All this while Arachnid's main enemies try to attack us.
The cool thing about the attraction is that, in addition to the 3D projection, the cart moves and adapts to the movements of the story, to give the feeling that it is really happening.
What is the best time to go to The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man?
Being such a well-known attraction and so coveted by tourists, it is normal for there to be a long queue at The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man.
The toy was inaugurated in 1999 and has become one of the best in Orlando since then, undergoing a makeover in 2011 (which left the toy cleaner and with an image in very high definition).
Because of this, it is one of the most visited attractions at Islands of Adventures and the line is usually very long.
No wonder we put The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man right at the beginning of our script for 1 day at Islands of Adventures.
The ideal is to go there as soon as the park opens. It should be your first or second attraction, to catch short queues. If you can't, then go at the end of the day, close to the park's closing time, so you don't spend too much time standing still.
Is it worth buying the Universal Express Pass?
Look, if it's ONLY for The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man, no. But overall, it's worth it. Because the Universal Express Pass it really saves a lot of time.
But pay close attention to the capacity calendars! This is because there are times when the parks are naturally more empty.
If the queue of 2 is over 100 minutes, then we recommend purchasing the Express Pass from Universal.
At Islands of Adventures, there are several attractions that are very popular. Because of this, it is worth using the fast ticket to cut the queues and have privileged access to the rides.
For example, without the Express Pass I think you can go once, at most twice, on the Spider-Man attraction, if you organize it right. With the Express, you don't need to organize yourself so much and you can go more often, in addition to seeing the whole park.
Is it worth going on the Spider-Man attraction?
After all that, do you still have any questions? Yes, of course it's worth going on the Spider-Man attraction at Islands of Adventures. And how it goes!
For anyone who is a fan of the character and grew up watching his cartoon on TV (or reading the comics), The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man is the closest to realizing a dream with the hero.
It feels really cool and it really feels like you've stepped into the middle of a Spider-Man movie. You'll leave thrilled with the fun and will definitely want to go again. At least a couple of times.
What if I'm not a Spiderman fan?
That's a valid question. After all, most attractions themed after famous franchises (especially superheroes) please fans.
But it's safe to say that The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man is worth going to even if you never liked the character.
The attraction is fantastic even without all the hero theme. The movements, the 3D projection? everything combines very well to create the feeling that this adventure is real. The experience is incredible.
After all, it was no wonder that the toy won the Golden Ticket Awards for 12 consecutive years for one of the best attractions in Orlando, right?
