Spiderman Pays A Visit To Sanford Castle

May 1, 2014, 5:00 PM by Don Jorgensen

Spiderman Pays A Visit To Sanford Castle

Just hours away from Thursday night's midnight movie premiere, The Amazing Spiderman made an appearance at Sanford Children's Hospital Thursday morning. And the superhero was super popular.

It's your friendly neighborhood Spiderman. Even so, it can be a jaw-dropping moment when the superhero walks through your door. 

Kids are doing double takes; even little spiders are caught up in the moment. 

Eight year old Debbie Campbell has been in the hospital for only one day, but being here on the same day Spiderman dropped in, doesn't bug her.

"He kind of brightened up my day, by seeing me, kind of makes me feel better knowing I'm going to get better," Campbell said.

That's exactly why Lance Nielsen, founder of Ministry Arts Academy, bought the suit.

"We just try to go around and bring smiles to people's faces and that's part of the ministry of what we do and just having an impact wherever we go," Nielsen said.

The impact even stirs up a super argument over two super heroes.

"Spiderman can shoot webs on Ironman, he can beat him," three year old Jacob Hocks said.

"Oh yeah, well Ironman's power can shoot faster than Spiderman's," five year old Mason Hocks replied.

As Spiderman continues to web his way around from room to room, posing for pictures and even short videos, everyone seems to be spider bitten, even if it's only for a little while.

"Anytime you can put a smile on their face or cheer them up or get them thinking about something other than why they are there in the hospital, that's a better day," Nielsen said.

It wasn't actor Andrew Garfield in the $5,000 Spiderman suit, instead Brandon Voss wore the exact replica of the suit used in the film.
