For the new Disney attraction, WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure, at Disney California Adventure Park, Imagineers are empowering guests to sling webs like Spider-Man. Guests shoot virtual webs from their wrists by making gestures with their hands and using natural motions that do not require wearable technology, other than 3D glasses. The web-slinging is done in real time with interactive scenes in the attraction. The innovative technology adapted specifically for this attraction is an interesting case study for game designers. Plus, how Walt Disney Imagineering philosophically and practically merged game design principles with storytelling principles at a land-scale level at Avengers Campus.
