CONCEPT ART: Ride Vehicle Revealed for Disney’s Spider-Man Ride at Disneyland Resort & Disneyland Paris

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

While Disney has said they will reveal a lot more about the Marvel themed-lands coming to Disney California Adventure park at Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney Studios park at Disneyland Paris at the D23 Expo, we won’t have to wait until then to see the grand reveal of the ride vehicle for the much-anticipated Spider-Man attraction.

Disney has described the attraction as follows:

“Both parks will feature an exciting new attraction where guests of all ages can join the heroes in action. Disney is expanding its story universe by creating a new organization, the Worldwide Engineering Brigade, to be the setting for this experience. Though WEB is grounded in classic characters like Peter Parker, it is an organization that all guests can be a part of – one that invites guests to engage with these iconic heroes like never before.”

“Besides WEB, there’s also brand-new, cutting-edge interface as part of this fun, interactive attraction. Through a blend of never-before-seen technology and practical effects, guests will get to experience for themselves what it is like to have the abilities of a Super Hero.”

According to rumors, guests will be able to sling webs like Spidey in this new ride, but the information above does make it sound like maybe there’s more abilities. We’ll have to wait and see if that’s true, but until then, why don’t we take a look at some never-before-released concept art of the ride vehicle and load area for this upcoming attraction?

So, here is your first look at the Spider-Man colored, red and blue pod-like vehicles waiting for guests to board in the ride’s loading area.

It does appear as if there is a glass window in front of guests in each vehicle. It will be interesting to see what role this plays in endowing guests with super powers, if it does at all. The attraction is reportedly in 3-D (requiring glasses), but as you read above, Disney is touting some practical effects as well.

If the vehicle looks somewhat familiar, well, it’s because it has been hiding in the poster advertisement for the California Adventure land released quite some time ago:

It was there all along...

If you look closely, you’ll even spot wall art for “Stark Motors” in the industrial load area for the ride. A similar design (but one that says “Stark Motives”) can be seen on the previously released concept art for the California Adventure building exterior.

So, who’s ready to fight alongside Spider-Man in the new lands Disney is creating at both Disney California Adventure park and Walt Disney Studios park?

I know these are just renderings, but they somehow feel more like a Six Flags attraction. I don’t sense the traditional Disney magic and immersion.

Seems similar to IOA’s version

Combined with the previously leaked ride layout, looks like this confirms that this is just a retread of Toy Story Mania. I for one am disappointed by another screen based, glorified video game experience. Is this really the best Disney has for us and for the great Spider-Man character? Think of all the cool ways a ride could have done justice to the web slinging/web swinging Spider-Man … like a faster Peter Pan type suspended ride, that swings left to right as Spidey swings his through the city.

I think that’s an Aperture Science poster on the right from the game Portal 2. That’s an odd choice to add to Disney concept art.

If *all of it* looks somewhat familiar, well, it’s because Universal already made this ride over two decades ago.

A friend of mine noticed this first, but this just shows how lazy Disney have gotten recently. In the bottom right of the image, there is a poster saying “Know your Hazardous Materials.” That poster is from Portal 2, you can see the retro-style Aperture Science logo at the bottom and everything. They literally ripped an image off the internet and stuck it in their concept art.
