Exciting news for Marvel enthusiasts and roller coaster aficionados! Disney has some thrilling plans in the works—a brand new Spider-Man-themed roller coaster at Shanghai Disneyland! Revealed through a recent government filing in the Pudong district, this much-anticipated attraction is set to swing its way into our hearts, making it the first Spider-Man roller coaster in any Disney park.

Scheduled to be built adjacent to the park’s recently opened Zootopia land, this new addition is creating quite the buzz. According to the permit, the coaster will boast a largely outdoor track, with dedicated buildings for loading and unloading as well as dual launch zones—one forwards and one in reverse, promising an adrenaline-pumping experience from start to finish. The ride’s above-ground footprint covers about 1.5 acres within a 5.26-acre plot, giving thrill-seekers plenty of room to soar alongside their friendly neighborhood superhero.

Disney is set to officially announce this project on May 2nd, although some blueprints have already stirred up discussions among fans. The track design indicates a shift from the immersive, diegetic storytelling seen in rides like Space Mountain or Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, mirroring instead a trend seen in attractions like Universal’s VelociCoaster and Hagrid’s Motorbike Adventure, where the tracks aren’t cloaked in thematic elements. This more open approach could lead to some spectacular visual dynamics as coaster trains zoom overhead, adding to the park’s highly charged atmosphere.

One concern, however, is the size and layout of the new area. With only one entry-exit point through Zootopia, some worry about handling the inevitable influx of guests eager to be among the first to experience Spider-Man’s roller coaster. Not only does this highlight the ever-increasing popularity of such high-profile rides, but it also raises questions about crowd management and overall visitor experience.

Frequent visitors to Shanghai Disneyland are already speculating about the broader theming of this new area. While details remain under wraps, fans are curious whether more Spider-Man or Avengers elements will be introduced to bridge the stylistic gap between Fantasyland and Zootopia.

So, what do you think, fellow Disney fans? Are you excited about this high-flying Spider-Man adventure in Shanghai Disneyland? How do you feel about the potential changes in ride theming and storytelling? Share your thoughts in the comments below, and let’s keep this discussion going! We can’t wait to hear from you!
