    Why hasn't Universal Hollywwod added Spiderman?

    It seems to me like it'd be a big draw, especially considering how many outdated attractions they have--Terminator 2, Waterworld, Fear Factor.
    I only ask because I'd love to ride this ride again, but doubt I'll return to Orlando for some time, and Spiderman would work wonders to lure me away from Disneyland for a day on my next trip.
    Otherwise, I don't see much to draw me to USH.
    Forget 'Great Moments With Mr. Lincoln,' Samantha Brown is Disney's most sophisticated animatronic.

    I dunno maybe they don't feel they have the land for it? and then there's the money thing they clearly don't invest in Hollywood like they do Orlando I don't want to see them do to Spiderman what they did to the Mummy but I do wish they'd see what they can do to make Hollywood a bit better of a park

    Spider-man take up alot of space but it is only at IOA in the USA. I say leave it in IOA and make a new Marvel attraction for USH.

    Re: Why hasn't Universal Hollywwod added Spiderman?

    It's too big:

    Here is a point of reference:

    This is Spiderman at IOA



    Excuse my reference, but that's a BIG *** building.

    Here is the top-level of USH.



    #1 is the Amphitheatre
    #2 is Shrek
    #3 is T2:3D
    #4 is where Spiderman Rocks and Fear Factor were.

    The ONLY building at USH big enough is the Amphitheatre, and that's not happening. The only other alternative would be to convert studio space, and that's not happening either.

    And before you think of MIB, that building is bigger than Spiderman's.

    And again, BTTF is NOWHERE near big enough for Spidey.

    Re: Why hasn't Universal Hollywwod added Spiderman?

    Holy crap I didn't know the building was that big! The outside facade, even the queue, are pretty small in IOA. Pity, it really is an amazing ride; I wish they could find room for it in USH so I didn't have to go all the way to Orlando for it. It's unfair really, Orlando has the far, far superior to Hollywood's Universal but the overall weaker to Anaheim Disney parks, while Anaheim/SoCal has the better maintained, more bang-for-your-buck Disney resort, and poor little USH

    Well if it make you feel better, Twister is not that good. I also think that Spider-man should stay in Marvel Super-Hero Island. He fit in that theme.

    They could make room for another new attraction. Turn Studio 13 (old Van Helsing Maze) into a MIB ride or something of the sort. Western stuntshow area can be used, put a darkride in the castle dracula facade, remove Nickolodeon play area and put in Sponge Bob darkride or something, Backdraft can go for a new attraction. It also wouldn't hurt to level some shops and food stands to expand current vacant areas to fit larger attractions.

    Not that I agree with your assessment, but how would that be unfair?

    Because you can't visit the two best theme park resorts in America on the same vacation. It was meant in jest.

    Re: Why hasn't Universal Hollywwod added Spiderman?

    Spider-man...? What happened to my poor E.T.!

    It would be cool to have a Spiderman ride, but there is really no room for it at all. That's why USH has so many darn shows because there really isn't enough room for actual rides... Cursed California and it's packed cities...
