I don't know, it is a 200 million dollar dark ride, anything big might be out of the question, but if i payed 200 million for a ride, i wouldn't wanna spend too much more money on it . But they might make a few changes

did they ever remove any signs that it took place in NYC? I remember them making a press release stating they dont want to upset people. That would seem kinda hard figuring the plot of the ride is villains stealing the statue of liberty, meaning the whole ride would have to be changed.

No because its not a Universal movie. I believe its a Sony movie, so you wont see much of a difference at the park.

Yeah, dont expect much with Spiderman. However, I would expect some promotional stuff/publicity stunts to take place at the park as we get closer to the release of Universals' "The Hulk", which is set to open in 2003.

They'll probably give you free Pepsi at the beginning of the ride with a bendy straw.

If they do anything to Spiderman, I say make a huge screen at the end of he ride showing Kirsten Dunst in her scene with the wet T-shirt. Oh yeah, baby!

Who made MIB? Who owns the rights to Rugrats, Dr. Seuse, and the Flinstones? NOT UNIVERSAL!!!

I just want to point out that if it is seen as benificial to both partys, the possibility is there for some kind of promotion.

I think Universal does the same thing as sixflags where they only have the right's to the comic book or cartoon. so they would have nothing to do with the movie. An d wait I though MIB was made by Universal.

Spidey was exactly the same about two weeks' ago, I don't think anything will change...

I should get over to ET next time, he's 20 now and he'll be able to drink legally, so maybe the ride will be a bit more interesting...;). I'm still waiting for Boris and Natasha to show up at a park....

if they did they'd have to redo the movie(the ride movie) , retrack it, and redo every hydraulic in the place. all theyd probably do is advertise it a little more

If your really evil in this life, do you come back as toilet paper????
ladies and gentlemen, due to an increase in line jumping, people caught cutting in line will no longer be ejected from the park. u will be ejected from the ride

MIB is a Sony picture but is an AMBLIN (Spielberg) production that is why it is at Universal.

Here is a nice story of some of the victims kids from 9/11 rode the ride the other day and really enjoyed it, article says the statue of liberty scene is still there.

Actually, MIB is made by Warner Bros. (I have the DVD in my collection.)

As others have pointed out, there could very well be some promotion for the movie at IOA IF it's beneficial for both Sony and Universal. But I wouldn't expect any changes to the ride itself. It's much too popular now to need any kind of changes. Maybe once its popularity starts to lessen, they will consider beefing it up.

I wouldn't change a thing on Spiderman. As the old saying says, "If it ain't broke don't fix it"

Barry Short is right. Warner Bros. was the company that made the movie, but Amblin is owned by Universal, just look at all the Jurassic Park movies. If the promotions can be beneficial to both the park and movie, than hang up a few movie posters in the line.

Was there yesterday. Had an odd ride because the score was turned off, all you heard was the spoken elements. It's surprising how noisy the Scoops themselves can be without the music to drown it out. Still, it was the first time that I cna remember since the preview days where ALL of the effects were working flawlessly (the water, the fire, the rising Statue of Liberty, etc.). I wouldn't expect anything added to the ride itself for next month's movie though -- if anything, the ride will even get more popular. However, the gift shop is already well-stocked with movie-related Spidey merchandise (not just the original Spidey stuff).

After 9/11, the ride itself remained completely intact. All they did was remove some of the queue video footage of New York under attack by the Sinister Syndicate.

The park has already seen its rides get movie treatments. Dudley Do-Right, the movie, added nothing to the attraction. While The Grinch inspired Grinchmas and its first year coincided with the Ron Howard movie, it's more of an ad-hoc holiday draw than anything else.
