Spider-Man is one of the most impressive animatronics Disney Imagineers have ever produced. It’s considered a “Stuntronic” and flies 65 feet over Disney California Adventure in the short stunt show, The Amazing Spider-Man!

The show often elicits gasps from Disneyland Resort Guests, who aren’t expecting the Spider-Man performer they just watched to soar through the air. (Little do they know, their favorite superhero has been swapped for a robot!)

A video posted today shows the Spider-Man stunt animatronic suffering a disastrous malfunction. Instagram user @mdglee_szm shared a 15-second clip of the show:

In the clip, you can see Spider-Man fly off the building in Avengers Campus as usual, but the animatronic appears to have a cable stuck to it. Typically, Spider-Man soars through the air with no strings – or webs – attached.

Instead of falling behind the building, the stunt animatronic crashes into the building, crushing a section of the wall. You can hear gasps in the crowd.

This video shows the way the Spider-Man Stuntronic is supposed to fall at the Disney Park:

It’s unclear if there was any damage to the Spider-Man Stuntronic after this incident. Disneyland’s website and mobile app both show multiple showtimes for The Amazing Spider-Man! at Avenger’s Campus and has not officially cancelled any upcoming performances.
