Spider-Man swings back into Sony Square NYC from December 11, 2018 to January 31, 2019! With the release of Sony & Marvel’s hit animated film “Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse” comes the Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse Experience!
So get ready, Webheads, as we see what happens inside with a quick overview of the pop-up and a video at the end of this post!
Just as the Spider-Man: Homecoming Experience did, the Spider-Verse Experience brought fun props, eye-catching art, photo ops, and unique experiences into the venue. As soon as you enter, you’re immediately immersed into the world of Miles Morales!
Even the floors are covered in comic-style panels from the movie!
If you haven’t seen the movie yet, what are you waiting for? Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse has already won multiple awards, including a Golden Globe for Best Animated Feature Film! But don’t worry – if you’ve already seen the trailer, there aren’t too many more spoilers inside.
But as you take a look around, you’ll find Spider-Verse decor everywhere! On the floor, on the walls, even up high! So keep you eyes peeled, wall-crawlers!
Some of the experiences include an Augmented Reality app to see the Kid Arachnid himself “come to life”! Here you’ll see Miles’ Nike sneakers on his iconic painted emblem, where he would materialize before your very eyes:
As far as “props” go, that’s as far as the Spider-Verse can take you, since it is an animated film. But you’ll notice that to the left of this display there is a wall of assorted blue & red “Hello My Name Is” stickers… This is where you can make your own sticker (just as Miles does in the movie) and slap it on the wall! Playing at the center is a behind the scenes video of said scene.
There’s also a Gachapon (or Gacha Gacha) vending machine where you can get a small Spider-Man, Miles Morales, or Spider-Gwen toy! All you have to do is show your social post with hashtags #SonySquareNYC & #SpiderVerse to a Brand Ambassador and you’ll be given a token. Check out which character I got:
Last, but not least, Sony Square NYC boasts a giant Crystal LED screen inside featuring around 200 seamless panels. This screen is the largest in the U.S. and can play content up to a resolution of 8K! For this exhibit, Sony included 4K footage from Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse.
But that’s not all! In front of the screen is a haptic stage where visitors can step up and “feel” the action alongside Spider-Man!
Using analog technology, the 6 individual floor panels will pulse, vibrate, buzz, and do other intricate rumblings as Spidey swings through the streets of New York City in a clip from the movie. It’ll feel like your Spider Sense is tingling!
And if you’re REALLY feeling like Spider-Man, sit down at the 3D scanning station where a Brand Ambassador will “record” your face and superimpose it into a preview of the movie! But be sure to have your own Spider-name ready – it gets added to the clip! You can see mine in the video below… It only takes a moment to become a part of the Spider-Verse yourself!
Then before you leave with your new Spider identity, be sure to climb up the side of a New York City skyscraper with this fun photo op:
The Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse Experience is only available from December 11, 2018 to January 31, 2019, so be sure to take lots of pictures and share online with #SonySquareNYC & #SpiderVerse! It’s an experience you won’t want to miss!
