Yesterday, Universal gave a teaser of the new enhancements that have been made to The Incredible Hulk roller-coaster. After being closed since September last year, this 'incredible' ride is almost ready to reopen, with the brand new additions making it bigger and better than before! Already a firm favourite for theme park thrill seekers, the revamp is sure to strengthen its status as one of Orlando’s most exhilarating coasters. Here’s all the exciting details you need to know before the opening later this summer…
A new ride vehicle:
The eye-catching new ride vehicles are a glistening hulk- green colour, with a sleek, modern design. Before you board you’ll notice the bursts of electricity shooting across the platform as the Gamma accelerator is powered up. Enjoy the adrenaline inducing music blasting from the all new in-seat audio speakers. A score has been created specifically for the ride by Fall Out Boy lead Patrick Stump. Get ready to shoot through the launch tunnel filled with amazing special effects, before flying over Marvel Super Hero Island.
A new story:
General Thaddeus Ross is looking for volunteers to trial a new experiment; are you up for the challenge? Once you’ve volunteered there’s no going back, so prepare for the transformation of a lifetime as the 'Hulk-a-fication' process begins! Originally introduced by Dr. Bruce Banner, the process aims to give subjects new levels of maximum superhuman strength and forceful energy. With the only warning being that you’ll be subjected to high levels of Gamma radiation, who knows what will happen to you!
A new Entrance:
The Incredible Hulk Coaster is a standout attraction at the park, and one of the most popular rides. Come face to face with Hulk himself as you approach the new entrance. The gigantic figure towers above you brandishing the remains of the previous track as you enter the marquee. The thrilling loops and twists of the track are one of the only things to remain the same, meaning you’ll still be able to get your favourite adrenaline fix.
A new queue experience:
The new ride will be fully immersive, and take you on an exciting journey from the moment you step inside the redesigned queue area. You’ll find yourself in a state-of-the-art military research compound, built under the instruction of General Ross. Pass by several laboratories where Ross is carrying out a range of questionable experiments. If you’re starting to have doubts about volunteering, it’s too late! Things get even more mysterious when you reach the Gamma core; an energy source used for fuelling the experiment, that sends off intense waves of radiation. As your journey continues watch in awe as the volunteers before you face the terrifying Hulk-a-fication process that is waiting for you!
