Web Slingers: A Spider-Man Adventure (stylized as WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure) is an interactive screen ride at Disney California Adventure in Anaheim, California and the Walt Disney Studios Park in Marne-la-Vallée, Île-de-France, France as part of their respective Avengers Campuses.
Guests will join the Worldwide Engineering Brigade (WEB) and Spider-Man. Using WEB's latest invention, the WEB Slinger vehicle, guests will help capture the Spider-Bots that have wreaked havoc on the Avengers Campus. The attraction will be a blend of physical sets and virtual environments.
Queue and preshow
Guests enter the main headquarters of the Worldwide Engineering Brigade (WEB), a program funded by Tony Stark to bring the world's youngest engineers together to build innovative technology for the future, as it is hosting an open house. As they enter the main area, they learn more about WEB and the main engineers enlisted in the program (Harley Keener, Onome, Doreen Green, and Lunella Lafayette). They are guided to the lab by the artificial intelligence Sharon, who introduces them to one of the lead WEB engineers, Peter Parker. Peter reveals that the guests will be testing out the new WEB Slinger vehicles that allows them to shoot webs like Spider-Man. As he is explaining this, one of the program's newest inventions, the Spider-Bot, goes haywire and begins endlessly replicating itself and tears down the facility. If they are not stopped, they could destroy the rest of Avengers Campus and pose a threat to the planet.
Peter insists that Sharon doesn't need to contact Stark or the Avengers and changes into his Spider-Man costume off screen. He and Sharon instruct the guests to use the WEB Slinger vehicles so they can stop the self-replicating Spider-Bots together.
After guests enter the vehicle, Spider-Man opens the doors to the WEB prototype garage and instructs them to web up and capture all the loose Spider-Bots as he seals off the exits. The Spider-Bots then enter through the tunnels and into Pym Kitchen. One of the Spider-Bots becomes giant after being exposed to Pym Particles, but Spider-Man manages to tie it up with his web and kick it into an area testing alien technology.
Spider-Man and the guests then enter the Collector's Trivan Collection. While battling the Spider-Bots, Spider-Man is captured and placed in one of the Collector's display cases, but manages to escape before he loses consciousness.
As they approach the Quinjet Hangar, Sharon informs the guests that the giant Spider-Bot survived and is now glowing green. Spider-Man noticed that the green bots explode when they are hit, and believes they could trigger a chain reaction if they focus on them. After stopping the Spider-Bots from hijacking the Quinjet, Spider-Man and the guests corner the giant, green Spider-Bot in the back of the hangar and cause it to explode, which destroys the rest of the Spider-Bots in the process. Spider-Man and Sharon thank the guests for their help as the exit the facility.
Early reviews for Web Slingers: A Spider-Man Adventure upon opening at Disney California Adventure have been mixed.
Critics praised the advanced tracking technology used in the ride's shooting mechanism to determine the rider's aim. Conversely, there has also been criticism regarding a paid-for optional add-on peripheral for the ride that allegedly improves the rider's abilities.
Although many reviewers commended the ride's theming, another common criticism was that the ride does not prominently feature the titular character Spider-Man enough, with the pre-show primarily featuring Peter Parker, and the ride itself centered on the Spider-Bots more so than Spider-Man. Many have compared the ride to Universal's Islands of Adventure's Spider-Man ride, The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man and Disney California Adventure's own Toy Story Midway Mania!, finding Web Slingers to be an inferior experience.
