WEB: New immersive Spider-Man experience for Disney theme parks

Spider-Man, Marvel, Disney

A new immersive, interactive experience featuring Marvel’s Spider-Man is coming to Disney California Adventure at Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney Studios at Disneyland Paris.

Both parks will feature the new attraction, named WEB, where guests can join the heroes in action.

The storyline for WEB reads:

“The Avengers are setting up new Headquarters and training facilities around the globe to inspire all potential recruits willing to step up and become something more. As part of this global initiative, Tony Stark has founded the Worldwide Engineering Brigade – or WEB for short – to develop advancements in super-powered technology, including new enhancements to Spider-Man’s suit as their debut project.

“By bringing together the world’s brightest young inventors, the WEB is creating new interfaces that will empower all of us to join the ranks of Earth’s Mightiest.”

A brand-new, cutting-edge interface will feature as part of the interactive attraction. Through new tech and practical effects, guests will get to experience for themselves what it’s like to have superhero abilities.

See Spidey at parks

You can see the new suit now at Walt Disney Studios Park, and soon at Disney California Adventure, and at other locations in the future.

Ryan Meinerding, Head of Visual Development at Marvel Studios, said: “It has been the highlight of my career to design all of Spider-Man’s suits for the most recent films.

“Bringing him to life through Tony Stark’s capable design aesthetic was a true joy, but working with the Walt Disney Imagineering team to develop a look for Spidey that reflects the innovation of a team of young geniuses really brings him to a new level.

“And knowing that park guests can get up close to that suit and really take in all the detail the astounding Imagineers packed into it means that we have truly brought a new version of the character to life.”

Disney recently released a new image of the Marvel-themed area coming to Walt Disney Studios Park in Disneyland Paris and details of other Marvel attractions across their portfolio of parks.
