Visitors to Disneyland’s Avengers Campus gasped when an animatronic Spider-Man stunt robot lost control and hit a building, a video shows.
No one was injured in the accident around noon on Thursday, June 9, and the high-flying robot returned for a show later that afternoon, Deadline reported.
“As with any flight, there may be some bumps along the way, but Spider-Man was back in action in time for his afternoon adventures in Avengers Campus!” a Disneyland spokesperson told the publication.
The animatronic Spider-Man performs daily stunt shows above the newly added Avengers Campus in Disney California Adventure, swinging on lines from building to building.
A video Darren Lee posted to Instagram shows the stunt robot swinging across campus, then hitting the side of a building, falling and breaking several decorative slats.
“Another happy landing,” Lee wrote in the caption.
The Spider-Man stunt robot normally releases the leash, does a somersault and lands on top of the building, KTLA reported.
The Disneyland News Today blog posted a video on Twitter featuring the animatronic Spider-Man back in action on Avengers Campus later that afternoon, calling the accident “a rather crashy encounter” with a wall.
