The Incredible Hulk Coaster

The Incredible Hulk Coaster at Universal's Islands of Adventure

The Incredible Hulk Coater recently became more ‘incredible’ than ever, thanks to a huge transformation. The famous attraction was given shiny new ride vehicles, a new entrance (featuring Hulk himself), a new queue experience and an exciting new story. If you’re brave enough to take on the Hulk, you’ll be launched 150-feet, reaching speeds of up to 60mph. There’s also a total of 7 inversions along the way! This is an absolute must-try for any thrill-seeker.

Where? Universal’s Islands of Adventure



Mako at SeaWorld Orlando

Mako is the newest roller coaster at SeaWorld Orlando, and when it opened in June 2016, it became the tallest, fastest and longest ride in the whole of Orlando! If you’re up for a challenge, put Mako at the top of your ‘must-do’ list. The hyper coaster is inspired by Mako sharks- one of the fastest shark species in the world. It’s designed to make riders experience what it would be like if they were a Mako shark racing through the ocean. Expect to reach incredible speeds of up to 73mph and heights of 200-feet!

Expedition Everest  

Exoedition Everest at Walt Disney World

This nerve-wracking coaster takes you deep into the icy Himalayan mountains on a speeding train. Beware of the Abominable Snowman though- he doesn’t take too kindly to anyone entering his lair. Riders can expect to reach heights of 200-feet and speeds of 50mph, as well as facing daring double loops. As you race to escape from the frightening creature, you’ll plunge 80-feet down to the base of the mountain zooming straight into an eerie cave. Will you escape the monster’s clutches?

Where? Disney’s Animal Kingdom


Hollywood Rip Rid Rockit

Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit at Universal Studios Florida

Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit is a roller coaster that will get your adrenaline soaring in seconds. One of the things we love most about this amazing coaster, is that you can choose which song you want to hear playing when you take on the ride. Songs like ‘Born to be Wild’, ‘I will Survive’ and ‘Rock Star’ feature on the list of classic hits that you can choose from. We’re sure any of them will get your heart racing!

The music will blast through your own set of headphones as you climb 17-storeys high at a 90-degree angle before facing an epic drop and speeding along the track at 65mph! This record-breaking ride is also known for being the only roller coaster in the world to have a non-inverting loop.

Where? Universal Studios Florida



SheiKra at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay

Busch Gardens has given SheiKra a ride thrill rating of ‘extreme’ and we’d definitely agree! Riders climb 200-feet up to the edge of a terrifying 90-degree drop. You’ll inch over the edge before waiting in fear until you suddenly plummet downwards into the roller coaster at 70mph! There’s also a second dive into an underground tunnel and an amazing grand finale that features a serious soaking! This is one you really won’t want to miss.

Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith

Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster at Walt Disney World

This exhilarating attraction takes you on an exciting journey through the dark freeways of Los Angeles in a stretch limousine. Hold on tight, as you’re in a rush to get to the Aerosmith concert on time, and that means speeding there at 60mph! Aerosmith hits blast through the speakers along the way as you tackle 3 thrilling inversions, a corkscrew and 2 rollover loops- all in complete darkness. Listen out for hits like ‘Walk This Way’ and ‘Dude (Looks Like a Lady)’.

Where? Disney’s Hollywood Studios


Kraken Unleashed

If you’ve been to SeaWorld Orlando before, you might be familiar with one of the parks most popular attractions- Kraken. Well, the fan-favourite has recently had an exciting virtual reality makeover, and it’s something that we’re sure you’ll love! The addition of high-tech VR makes the underwater adventure incredibly realistic, so riders will actually feel like they’re plunging into the depths of the ocean.

You’ll pass mysterious sea creatures along the way, including a faceoff with the legendary Kraken.
