Spiderman 3D glasses

Universal Orlando has released an image showing the new-look 3D glasses that will be worn by riders on the updated Amazing Adventures of Spiderman ride.

The popular dark ride, located at the Islands of Adventure theme park, is currently closed to undergo a major refurbishment. It is expected to reopen by the end of March 2012, when it will feature a new Infitec 3-D projection system that generates high-resolution 4K images. Physical enhancements will also be made to the attraction's sets.

To take advantage of the new projection technology, the new glasses are made of dichroic filters. Universal promises that these will offer "amazing color and clarity". They can be seen in the image below:

Universal has released a number of images showing off the new-look that will be sported by the Amazing Adventures of Spiderman's characters when the attraction reopens. The ride remains one of the most popular at Islands of Adventure, despite the 2010 debut of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
