From the remarkable way that drinks fill Guests cups from below at Pym’s Test Kitchen, to the way Guests can use their hand as a web-slinger on WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure, Disney Imagineering truly jumped into the Marvel Cinematic Universe and brought it to life.

One of the coolest feet in Imagineering that comes with this land is the way Spider-Man meets and greets Guests. Many MCU characters will conduct meet and greets in the new land; however, Spider-Man’s entrance is nothing short of jaw-dropping. Disney created an animatronic that shoots into the air while flipping, truly bringing the Avenger to life.

What happens here is a combination between a real human and an animatronic. In real life, Spider-Man will come out onto the roof and greet everyone to the tune of Tom Hollands’ voice; he then goes into a room, which is when the animatronic will shoot into the sky and land behind another building. Then, the real human comes out, crawls down the side of a building, and gets ready to say hello to Guests!

If you want to look at the below video from our Instagram page, you can see how Spider-Man flies through the air.

From this video alone, the cheers from the crowd showed just how stunned everyone was to watch Spider-Man truly come to life. When Disney noted that, “Guests will have the chance to witness Spider-Man swinging into action high above Avengers Campus with gravity-defying, acrobatic feats never seen before in a Disney Park,” no one could have ever imagined how realistic it would truly be.

Now that other Guests have had the chance to experience Spider-Man, it seems that the reaction is unanimous; it’s amazing.

On Twitter, Guests are already freaking out about the animatronic.

Serina (@seenareena) said:

I feel like not enough people are freaking out over the animatronic Spider-Man that gets launched through the air & literally POSES IN MIDAIR at California Adventure

Kitty chimed in in disbelief of the animatronic:

no thoughts, just Spider-Man animatronic in Disneyland

Grace (@gracexmorganxx) is another one of the many Guests stunned by the Imagineering involved in this animatronic:


HE JUST FLEW AND DID A BACKFLIP LIKE WHAT. Imagineering is truly one of a kind

WalkonPooh (@WalkonPooh) is just as stunned as the rest of us!

The fact that this Spider-Man is an animatronic blows my mind, no matter how many times I see this.

Pi to the Disney Guy (@Pi_DisneyGuy) took a video of the swinging Avenger!

Wow, that Spider-Man Animatronic in #AvengersCampus sure flies high!


Haleigh (@haleighanne) got emotional after seeing Spider-Man soar through the air.

did i just cry over the spider-man animatronic? yes

Spider-Man fans will also get the opportunity to dive deeper into the character when visiting Avengers Campus:

“At Avengers Campus, guests will find Spider-Man visiting the Worldwide Engineering Brigade, also known as WEB. WEB brings together bright young innovators like Peter Parker who are inventing new technologies that allow everyone to become Super Heroes.
Throughout the day, recruits have the chance to witness Spider-Man swing into action high above Avengers Campus with gravity-defying, acrobatic feats never before seen in a Disney park. Spider-Man will flip 60 to 65 feet in the air above the rooftop of the WEB building. Following those stunning moves, Spider-Man will swing down off the building to ground level to say hello and inspire the “new recruits” he meets on campus.
Guests may also notice that their friendly neighborhood Spider-Man will be wearing a Disney Parks exclusive WEB Slinger suit.”
