Disney Parks, the YouTube channel of the Disneyland resorts, has posted a new video regarding the new Spider-Man attraction in Disney California Adventure. The video shows Spider-Man actor Tom Holland as the host of the ride.

The new ride, called Web Slingers: A Spider-Man Adventure, will open this season in Disney California Adventure in a new themed area, the Avengers Campus. The ride and area will be themed to the movies of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Actor Tom Holland plays Spider-Man in the latest films of the cinematic universe.

Holland: “What the Disney Imagineers have created is pretty spectecular. When I first joined playing Spider-Man, I went to Avangers Headquarters and it was just a bunch of green screens. So the fact that it it is actually going to be a legit place where people can go visit is pretty awesome.”

The video shows artwork, a short behind the scenes during the recording of audiovisual media for the ride and a few glimpses of what the ride will look like. The new dark ride will feature interactivity that is driven by hand guestures. A similar technique can be found in Legoland’s NINJAGO rides.

There is no date announced for the opening of Web Slingers: A Spider-Man Adventure, but the opening is scheduled for the 2021 season. A similar ride is being developed for the Walt Disney Studios park in Disneyland Resort Paris.
