Fans Attack Disneyland For Making “Incredibly Boring” Ride

There is a lot for Marvel fans to enjoy in the Avengers Campus within Disney California Adventure at Disneyland Resort. After all, you can watch Marvel superheroes strolling around in a more interactive way than you can during a regimented Character Meet and Greet (although you do have to worry about the Scarlet Witch trying to “borrow” your children).

However, one Avengers Campus attraction has apparently been found to be lacking — so much so that the ride’s upcoming (and indefinite) closure is not actually disappointing its former passengers!

In a recent Reddit conversation  Marvel fans reveled in the upcoming January 9 closure of WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure. This interactive ride is meant to simulate an action-packed fight in which Disneyland Guests and Spider-Man (aka Peter Parker, who is played by Tom Holland) defeat villainous Spider-Bots.

Unfortunately, the fight is apparently less than thrilling. “Sorry but this is literally the worst ride at Disney ever,” one Guest wrote. Another Guest called the ride “incredibly boring”, saying that they “havent had the desire to go on it since.”

The ride was called “a gigantic missed opportunity” that is reminiscent of “a midway mania esque ride” — and as another Guest succinctly put it, “It’s just moving your arms for three minutes! I absolutely hate it!”

Walt Disney Imagineering and the Walt Disney Imagineers obviously put a lot of thought into each Disney, Pixar, or Marvel-inspired ride or roller coaster, so seeing a big-budget Marvel ride like this one (which is meant to help Guests “unleash [their] inner hero and save the Campus from complete chaos”) be classified as a dud is certainly surprising!

Have you ever experienced this Marvel movie-inspired ride? Did you find it to be disappointing, or were you pleased with the experience?
