The new ride has had a track overhaul, as well as a brand new ride entrance with a gigantic statue of The Hulk hoisting one of the new ride vehicles above his head.
The Hulk has been a firm favourite for visitors since the Islands of Adventure park opened in 1999, so this new reinvention of the much-loved ride has been long-anticipated by Universal Orlando fans. Fingers crossed, The Hulk will be roaring into life again for good very very soon.
