Spin high above the city with Spider-Man in hot pursuit of Doctor Octopus...
|Theme Park||IMG Worlds of Adventure|
|Opened||31 August 2016|
Spider-Man Doc Ock's Revenge takes visitors to IMG Worlds of Adventure swinging high above the city streets in persuit of Spider-Man's nemesis Doctor Octopus, who is threatening the city's energy supply.
The rollercoaster is a Mack Spinning Coaster, which sits riders two-by-two back-to-back in round spinning cars that make their way around the track in trains of four.
It's by far the best of IMG World of Adventures' opening set of coasters, providing plenty of fun and thrills. Mack's spinning cars help make it a very communal experience, and the ride is smooth yet speedy.
Doc Ock's Revenge takes place largely in a ride area which is supposed to represent the cityscape, and sits away from the main part of the park. Sadly, this is mainly a room filled with large "cardboard cutouts" of skyscapers coloured with UV paint. It feels very low budget, in comparison to the ride's nicely themed station area.
The coaster's stand-out moment is when the train bursts out of a building fascade to fly high above one of IMG's main walkways. It gives a nice moment of interaction with passers-by, and allows them a glimpse of the rollercoaster in action.
Spider-Man Doc Ock's Revenge is a superb coaster. It spins and glides magnificently under World of Adventures' air conditioned dome, and is something deserving of multiple re-rides.
