Look up this summer, as Spider-man is flung across the sky at Disneyland.


Guests at Disney California Adventure will soon be able to see everyone’s favorite web-slinger soar high above Avengers Campus.


At the D23 Expo in 2019, Imagineers revealed they are working hard to bring a new experience featuring Spider-Man to life.


The new experience will captivate guests at Avengers Campus this summer, according to Disney officials.


“Today I’m excited to share that guests visiting Disney California Adventure Park in the near future may be able to catch a glimpse of the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man himself swinging above the rooftops of Avengers Campus,” Scot Drake, Creative Executive, Marvel Global Portfolio said.


Disneyland Park shared the video below on YouTube Thursday showing the new stunt robot in action.



So how do you make spidey fly? Well back in 2018 Disney released a video of a new technology they called stuntronics.


The robotic figure, which was developed by Disney Imagineers, can do whatever a spider can, which includes performing extreme aerial maneuvers 60-feet in the air.

If you’re planning a trip prior to the opening of the Avengers Campus, you can still find Spider-Man every day in Hollywood Land.
