The Marvel Universe LIVE! Spectacle 

Marvel Universe LIVE! is a touring live-action show that brings Marvel superheroes and villains to life on the stage. The show immerses audiences in the Marvel universe like never before by combining thrilling action sequences, state-of-the-art special effects, and captivating storytelling. From Spider-Man’s acrobatics to Iron Man’s aerial feats, the production boasts an array of spectacular stunts that leave audiences in awe.

The Marvel Universe LIVE! Motorcycle Ramp: An Engineering Marvel Among the many jaw-dropping stunts in Marvel Universe LIVE!, the retractable motorcycle ramp stands out as an engineering marvel crafted by AMC Fabrication. Designed to elevate the superhero chase scenes to unprecedented heights, the aluminum circular ramp was built in 5 to 10-foot sections, allowing it to be assembled and disassembled quickly during the show’s touring schedule.

The ingenuity behind the motorcycle ramp lies in its retractability and seamless integration with the show’s arena setup. Each arena featured a circular truss system allowing the ramp to fold into the rafters when not used. This design not only ensured efficient storage and transportation but also preserved the arena’s space for other stunts and performances.

During the chase scenes, the motorcycle ramp descended from the ceiling to the stage, creating a breathtaking spectacle for the audience. As superheroes like Captain America rode their motorcycles, the ramp lifted them to a staggering vertical height of approximately 30 feet, adding a new dimension of excitement to the performance.

Movable Trolley and Winch Arrays 

To facilitate the smooth operation of the motorcycle ramp, AMC Fabrication went above and beyond by fabricating a movable trolley to hold the winch arrays responsible for lifting the ramp. This ingenious solution allowed for precise control of the ramp’s movement, ensuring flawless transitions during the show.


The winch arrays were strategically positioned on the trolley, allowing for seamless raising and lowering of the ramp at the desired speed and height. The movable trolley system gave the show’s crew the flexibility to adapt to different arenas and spaces, making each performance an extraordinary experience.
