From The Community: The high and lows of Spider-Man, the coaster sandwich and the Terror behind Terror Tower

Rounding up all the biggest news from fans and influencers, here is your latest edition of From the Community from Planet Attractions






Highlighting some incredible content, welcome to From The Community - a roundup of everything fans and influencers from within the attractions community have been up to all over the world.

In this week’s edition, we get a first look at the new Spider-Man attraction in Avengers Campus, enjoy a sandwich eating contest on a rollercoaster, and look at the terror behind the former Tower of Terror at Disneyland.



Starting with Theme Park Review, we take a ride on the highly-anticipated Web Slingers: A Spider-Man Adventure at the new Avengers Campus.

In addition to a look at the pre-show for the ride, TPR’s David Wagner speaks with Casey Ging of Walt Disney Imagineering about the attraction, which sees riders help Spider-Man save the day from self-replicating robots.

While the new Spider-Man attraction might be getting rave reviews, the same can’t be said for a former attraction - Spider-Man The Ultimate ride.

Located at the former Marvel Super Hero Adventure City, the attractions was a motion-based 3D dark ride, which saw guests travel through New York City in an attempt to stop several Marvel villains and their nefarious schemes alongside Spider-Man.

The ride was built at a fraction of the cost of the more successful Universal and Disney attractions and was dubbed by some as a ‘rip-off’ dark ride. Expedition Theme Park has looked at the ride’s troubled history and how it came to be.

Over to Jordan Middleton at Cupcakes and Coasters, who has looked at a word possibly overused in the visitor attractions world - immersive.

Writing in her blog, Middleton discusses the problem with immersion, along with “the long lost art of suspending our disbelief”.



Have you ever thought about eating your lunch on a rollercoaster? Us neither, but that’s exactly what Coaster Studios decided to do on Silverwood’s brand-new Stunt Pilot, where they try to keep their meal down as they ride the RMC single-rail coaster in a sandwich-eating contest.

For the less hungry, CoasterForce has shared a 4K point-of-view version of the ride, with the camera kept level with the horizon throughout the experience.

Over in the Netherlands, Pieter & Pris have taken their first trip to Toverland in 2021, exploring the park and taking its many rollercoasters and other attractions.

From ParkSpill, they attended the Lego Mythica VIP preview event, becoming some of the first people to explore the new land and enjoy its new rides and attractions, including the UK's first Flying Theatre, the Brogent-manufactured 'Flight of the Sky Lion'.



Before it housed Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: Breakout, The Tower of Terror was one of the most iconic attractions at Walt Disney World, and like many Disney attractions, it's inspired by real historical structures. In its latest video, Midway to Main Street has picked this up by looking at the real Tower of Terrors behind the attraction.

Over in the UK, Pleasure Beach Experience has offered a number of handy tips in beating the queues at Blackpool Pleasure Beach. Arch Nemesis is joined by his family this week as they explore the luxury treehouse accommodation at Alton Towers, which features hot tubs and even a secret door. The family also explores the park on their weekend trip, trying out the rollercoaster restaurant, as well as riding some Alton Towers favourites.



In celebration of reaching 60,000 followers, ElToroRyan has released a ‘Meme Fest’ video, reviewing meme submissions from his followers based on his videos and on the world of visitor attractions.
