Universal Studios Updates Spider-Man Attraction

With a new feature film on the way next summer, Spider-Man is gearing up to be in the spotlight in 2012. Today, Universal Orlando Resort has revealed their own plans for the wall-crawler beginning sometime next year.
 
A popular mainstay of the resort's Islands of Adventure, "The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man" will be getting a facelift, centering around a new high-definition digital animation. The attraction, which combines motion-based ride vehicles, 3-D digital film and live special effects, will make use of the new Infitex system to make the experience as state of the art as possible.
 
Details from the official press release include the following facts about the enhanced ride experience:
 
• All-new digital animation done in 4K high definition – the highest HD resolution available
• The new HD animation will allow guests to experience details they’ve never been able to before – from the flames spewing from Hobgoblin’s pumpkins to the electricity arching through Electro’s body to the stitching on Spider-Man’s gloves.
• To take advantage of new HD clarity and detail, Universal Orlando is adding entirely new details to the film – and leaving it up to guests to find them.  
 
“Guests will not believe their eyes when they experience the new Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man,” said Thierry Coup, senior vice president of the Universal Creative Studio.  “We are talking about a larger-than-life environment and the HD animation will make it even more remarkable than it has been.  It will seem brand-new.” 
 
There is no specific launch date yet available for the updated attraction, but check back with SuperHeroHype for more details as they become available.
