New Details About The Incredible Hulk Coaster at Universal’s Islands of Adventure

The Incredible Hulk Coaster at Universal’s Island of Adventure has been undergoing an extensive refurbishment, and today we learned about the new upgrades coming to this fan favorite coaster!

New Story

The Incredible Hulk Coaster Universal Orlando Resort Universal Orlando's Islands of Adventure

The experience of riding The Incredible Hulk Coaster begins with a whole new story, and the Official Universal Orlando Resort Blog shared an overview of what we are about to experience:

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.

 

The end result is said to give subjects magnificent strength and a forceful amount of energy. Will you emerge as the military’s next super soldier…or something else entirely?

New Queue Experience

Also on The Official Universal Orlando Blog was a look how the new story unfolds from the moment you enter the attraction’s queue building which is home to a state-of-the-art military research compound, commanded by General Ross.

Inside, General Ross is conducting an array of questionable, bio-radiological experiments. You’ll pass by laboratories containing high-tech equipment his team uses to execute his mysterious tests.

 

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. Not to worry – a thick pane of glass will protect you from direct exposure to the radioactive core.

 

As you move along, you’ll witness the transformation of your predecessors as they undergo the perilous Hulk-a-fication process.

I’m in…I’m all in!

New Ride Vehicle

The new ride vehicle cars for The Incredible Coaster are sick! The cars have a sleek, angular, and modern look that has a more aggressive feel. Then once in your seat, you’ll be blown away (literally) by the new in-seat audio system.

New Music

Speaking of audio…Once the ride begins you are surrounded by an original ride score from Patrick Stump, front man for internationally-renowned rock band Fall Out Boy.

New Lightning System

Through out the attraction’s marquee, queue, ride vehicle, and track a new lighting system has been installed to really immerse you into the world of The Incredible Hulk.

New Marquee

As you walk up to enter The Incredible Hulk Coaster’s queue, you will pass under a ‘towering figure’ of The Hulk who is using his strength to hold up pieces of the track.

What I really love is that the pieces of the track that are used in the new marquee are actually track pieces saved from the original attraction.

New Launch Experience

While it will still be a high-speed, catapult launch, we can see from the renderings that the launch experience has been upgraded with new visual effects inside the ‘Gamma Bombardment Chamber’.

And an opening date?

While we didn’t find out an exact date for the re-opening of The Incredible Hulk Coaster at Universal’s Islands of Adventure, we did find out that it would be opening later this summer.
