Universal Orlando: Islands of Adventure: Marvel Super Hero Island Information

Another land of oversized heroes and villains, Marvel Super Hero Island looks as if it was taken right from the pages of a graphic novel. The whole land has a metallic hue, full of clean hard lines and polished alloy. All of the shops and restaurants are named in that nondescript, comic-book style that just says "Diner" or "Cafe." Comic book greats such as the X-Men, the Fantastic Four and the Silver Surfer tower over guests in life-size cutout form.

Marvel Super Hero Island - Universal's Islands of Adventure

The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man

Your spider sense will be tingling! Join your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man™ in an amazing 3-D adventure that has you swinging and soaring high above the city streets.

The Amazing Adventures of Spiderman

Simply one of the greatest rides ever built, this attraction actually takes theme park technology to new heights. A masterful combo of the greatest effects of Universal Studios Florida's Back to the Future ride and Terminator 2 attractions, Spider-Man mixes 3-D graphics, a twisting motion simulator and live-action thrills. Guests are taken through the offices of the Daily Bugle where publisher J. Jonah Jameson and ace photographer Peter Parker (aka Spider-Man) are working on the story of a lifetime.

Dr. Octopus and his evil syndicate have stolen the Statue of Liberty and demand the unconditional surrender of New York City as its ransom. Jamieson needs visitors to take The Scoop, an experimental ride vehicle, out into the streets and get some pictures of all the action. So you pile into twelve-seater cars, don 3-D glasses, and off you go through a whirling vortex of dazzling special effects and motion simulation. The ride features 13 scenes of 3-D effects, huge fireballs, waterspouts and crashing explosions. The symbiosis of all of these elements makes for the wildest adventure ever.

During the ride you will notice a movie theater. There is a phone number to call for the theater 1-407-224-1783. Call it for a special message. On the queue line for the Express Pass, you will see a room with several file cabinets. These cabinet are filed with information on various characters and locations in the Marvel Universe.

Tip: Waits can be 45 minutes or longer even on an off day. Unless you have an Express Plus Pass, heading to the single-rider line is the only way to drastically reduce your waiting time. So if it's an option on the day you're here and your party doesn't mind splitting up, take advantage of it.

Storm Force Accelatron
