Superheroes aren’t perfect, they can make mistakes too. But they, like the rest of us, come back and go to work. Something similar happened to the robotic Spider-Man on Disney’s Avengers campus who is usually touted for his excellent work on web ropes.
Disney’s Avengers Campus recently opened a robotic display of a spider that can be seen swinging across the sky in some real-time web-slinger action. The attraction was an instant hit among the crowd as people were amazed at how realistic the seemingly realistic movements were.
However, the attraction has recently experienced some technical difficulties. The robotic show of the friendly Spider-Man in your neighborhood seems to malfunction in the air. Robot movements no longer look smooth and lifelike. The scene immediately alarmed the viewers and their concern was valid, because instead of the usual gentle landing, the robot ended up crashing into a nearby building resulting in some “worstnesses” and “aahs” from the crowd.
Fortunately, no one was injured in the accident. Several attendees made videos that they posted on Instagram and the phenomenon went viral.
The team responsible for this attraction seemed to have been expecting a glitch of this sort, so as soon as the robotic Spider-Man crashed, a voice was heard declaring, “The web facility is not equipped with airbags,” to which everyone’s favorite answered Peter Parker’s favorite, “Okay!”
A spokesperson for the theme park made a statement about the event and clearly saw the humor in the situation as well, saying, “As with any ride, there can be some bumps along the way, but Spider-Man is back in action in time for his afternoon adventures in Campus Avengers!”
Several attendees also posted photos of the building being repaired exactly where Spider-Man crashed.
Later in the day, Disneyland News Today’s official Twitter handle posted a video showing Spider-Man returning to his natural, lifelike swinging motion with the caption, “After a somewhat shattered encounter with the WEB facility wall, Spider-Man is back to swing Over the Avengers Sanctuary again!🕸
I wish the friendly Neighborhood of Spider-Man (robot) good luck for their future swing!
