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.
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?
