The Incredible Hulk Coaster closes at Universal Orlando, changes on the way

in Theme Parks, Universal Orlando

Things are going to start getting quieter around the Universal Orlando Resort, but it has nothing to do with their fast pace lineup of upcoming attractions and experiences. One of the signature attractions at the Islands of Adventure theme park is getting a MARVELous makeover; The Incredible Hulk.

A few weeks back, the official Universal Orlando Resort blog gave notice that September 7th would be the final day of operation for the world famous coaster, with enhancements taking place that would bring about new ride vehicles, storyline, and an overall greater experience for the guests. Those are the only few details that have been released, with more promised from them over the coming months.


The Incredible Hulk coaster is famously known for a few things, like the initial indoor launch that thrusts riders through a gamma-ray accelerator at 40mph, upwards of 110 feet into the air, and reaching top speeds of 67mph. Though most noticeably, it’s the unique ROAR that can be heard as ride vehicles travel along its 3,700 feet of steel track. Twisting along, it boasts a maniacal 7 inversions that give the rider the sense that this experience was no doubt forged by the hands of the raging Hulk himself. With no word on what will change, we’ll have to see how the setup changes. Will we still enter into the laboratory of Dr. Bruce Banner? Will he still be on a quest to reverse the effects that brings out the raging green monster?

Keep following Inside The Magic for more coverage of the exciting changes and additions that are coming to this already phenomenal attraction.
