PHOTOS: The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man Now Loading Every Row at Universal Studios Florida

Well it looks like yet another attraction has removed any attempt at keeping guests physically distant from each other. We reported that the E.T. Adventure, Transformers – The Ride, “The Bourne Stuntacular”, The High in the Sky Seuss Trolley Train Ride!, and now The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man are loading every row and taking no real measures to keep guests distant while waiting to ride.

Of course this is one of the busiest weeks of the year, and Universal Studios theme parks have been so crowded that they closed for capacity four days in a row this week. It’s understandable that the parks are trying to limit the attraction’s wait-times, but any attempt at keeping guests physically distant in the ride queue has gone out the window.

Guests wait for their ride vehicle in numbered rows. No dividers block guests who are forced to stand less than a foot from each other in the meantime.

Every row is utilized when possible, although like the other rides, guests won’t be sat in the same row with different parties.

Parties of two will have two empty seats next to them, however the rows in front of them or behind them will be filled by the next parties.

It can be difficult to allow wait-times to skyrocket by keeping rows open on ride vehicles, although looking at the cramped indoor queue definitely doesn’t thrill us.

How do you feel about the lack of physical distancing while riding attractions like this? Let us know down below!

No one is “forced” to wait for anything. If you don’t feel safe going, then stay home. But FFS, stop acting like gong to the parks is something people are being forced to do with no choice.

Good’. There have been no examples of Covid spread due to ride spacing. Plus, they already require masks. Perfectly safe!

Way to go universal fill every ride and drop the mask requirements time to return to normal. Anyone that is concerned stay home no one says you have to go.

I know it is not likely what you meant, but it is not correct to state “…and taking no real measures to keep guests distant while waiting to ride.” Loading face covered guests onto the ride vehicle experince that typically lasts a little over 4 minutes is in fact a measure compared to having more people waiting in indoor queue spaces for long periods of time. As others have said, it is a choice of a risk and everyone should be face covered and doing their part. Between those things and the vaccines being out, it is an inherent risk… Read more »

A mask isn’t a distancing device. Masks have nothing to do with how far away you are from a person, place, or thing. So yeah, the phrase is accurate as it doesn’t say “nothing is being done to protect guests”. Does that make sense?

as the CDC is about to change guidelines, this was coming sooner or later. The movement the ride goes through makes it unlikely for riders to interact with fellow riders or truly be exposed. Exposure window is 15 min, this ride certainly is not that long, and with masks it’s plenty safe.
