Universal Orlando Reveals Hulk Coaster Relaunch Details

The Incredible Hulk Coaster revamp at Universal Orlando

It’s only a matter of months until The Incredible Hulk Coaster reopens after a major revamp, and this week Universal Orlando has revealed some relaunch details.

The first big change is the entrance to the coaster. As you enter the ride, you’ll pass underneath a towering figure of The Hulk, using his colossal strength to hold up pieces of the coaster’s track. These pieces are actually salvaged from the ride’s original track.

Reuse…recycle.

There is also a new original storyline that will be laid out in the queue: General Thaddeus Ross is calling for volunteers for a new experiment. Your only warning is that you’ll be subjected to high levels of gamma radiation through a process called Hulk-a-fication – a potentially life-altering process first introduced by Dr. Bruce Banner.

As you enter, you’ll notice the building has been redesigned as a state-of-the-art military research compound, where General Ross is conducting an array of questionable, bio-radiological experiments.

Next, you’ll arrive at the Gamma core – an intense energy source that sends pulsing waves of radiation upward to fuel General Ross’s experiment.

Finally, you’ll be rushed to a loading platform, sparking with electric bursts as the Gamma accelerator powers up to blast you with superhuman strength.

From there, you’ll step into an entirely new ride vehicle, which features a brand new, in-seat audio system that booms an original ride score created by Patrick Stump, front man for the internationally-renowned rock band Fall Out Boy.

Universal also released a video showing the new Hulk Coaster vehicle:

And here is a video showing the new details, along with interviews with show producer Neil Engel:

The Incredible Hulk Coaster at Universal’s Islands of Adventure re-opens in late summer 2016. We’ll let you know when we get an exact date.

Are you excited to try out the new and improved version of the coaster?
