Caught those eye-popping television ads for the new Islands of Adventures theme park in Orlando, Florida, featuring Spider-Man and Doctor Octopus slugging it out on the wing of a plane?

The actual ride at Universal Studios Florida (http://www.usf.com/) is "The Adventures of Spider-Man," which combines moving vehicles roaming a set that includes computer-generated films and live special effects.

The film segments, which include footage of Spider-Man's greatest foes, were produced by the Kleiser-Walczak Construction Company, and fans outside the Orlando area can check out their Web site for glimpses of what awaits the Spidey in the Sunshine State: http://www.kwcc.com/projects/sv/spidey3.html
