Universal Studios Japan announced last month that The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man will close permanently next year and have now provided a first look at the ride’s Final Campaign merchandise.
The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man Final Campaign Merchandise
The first of the two items Universal Studios Japan revealed is a T-shirt with a design that changes depending on how you look at it. Judging by the image released, it will show different scenes from the ride and reads, “Your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man! The Amazing Spider-Man saves cub reporters high above the streets of New York!’
The second item is a purse version of the popular “Spidey Ramen” containers. It has a zipper enclosure and a red strap.
This merchandise and more will be available at The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man store and other shops beginning on July 4.
The ride’s Final Campaign will also include a commemorative sticker while supplies last. Guests can ask any Crew Member except in Minion Park, Super Nintendo World, and The Wizarding World of Harry Potter for one of these special stickers also beginning on July 4.
For those wishing to have a bit more smooth goodbye, you can also purchase special types of Express Pass starting May 16, 2023, which range from the Universal Express 7 Plus 1 with Spider-Man as well as Hollywood Dream The Ride: BACKDROP, all the way to a single Express Pass for The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man which also includes a special merchandise item.
The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man
The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man will close one day shy of the attraction’s 20th anniversary, on January 22, 2024.
The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man: The Ride opened on January 23, 2004 as the first major expansion to Universal Studios Japan after it opened in 2001. The ride is exactly the same as at Universal’s Islands of Adventure in Florida, although differences exist in the queue and load structure. The original ride opened at Universal’s Islands of Adventure in 1999.
A replacement was not announced for the space, although with the official closure of nearby Terminator 2 3-D, a large parcel of real estate has now opened up at the park for expansion. Rumors for years have swirled of a permanent Pokémon presence in this area, but no information is official yet on future plans.
