The Amazing Adventures of Spiderman dark ride at Universal Orlando's Islands of Adventure will reopen to the public on Thursday, March 8, 2012.

The ride has undergone a major refurbishment designed to re-establish it as one of the world's leading theme park attractions. This has included the installation of a new Infitec 3-D projection system capable of generating high-resolution 4K images, physical enhancements to the ride's sets, and updates to the look of Spiderman himself and his enemies.

A new musical score has been produced to accompany the updated Amazing Adventures of Spiderman, based on the classic Spiderman theme tune. The ride's vehicles have also received an upgrade, with a 16-channel audio system being installed to replace the previous 8-channel system.

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.
