Universal Orlando fans have been waiting with bated breath for any news on the relaunch of the popular The Incredible Hulk Coaster at Universal’s Islands of Adventure. The Universal Orlando Resort blog has now revealed that when the coaster re-opens late this summer we will be seeing a completely new version of both the queue and the ride vehicle. New immersive effects and high-tech components will make you feel like you really have stepped into Dr. Bruce Banner’s shoes.

For more information check out the details from Universal Orlando Resort’s blog below:

The only things you’ll recognize when The Incredible Hulk Coaster at Universal’s Islands of Adventure re-opens in late summer are the world-famous twists and turns of the ride track.

This fan favorite is undergoing thrilling, new enhancements that will make it feel more immersive and high-tech – but will still have the same “Incredible” personality that makes it one of America’s most popular coasters. For the first time ever, we’re sharing details about the revamped coaster.

Massive New Marquee

From the moment you walk up to the beloved coaster, you’ll see the huge changes that were made to the attraction. 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. And fun fact, these track pieces were salvaged from the original ride.

New, Original Storyline

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?

Completely Redesigned Queue

Your part of the story begins the moment you enter the building – which has been redesigned as 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

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. Prepare for the ride of your life…

Totally New Ride Vehicle

From there, you’ll step into an entirely new ride vehicle. The changes start with its sleek, modern new look. Once on board, you’ll discover 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.

The next thing you know, you’re rocketing through a new launch tunnel, packed with amazing special effects, as you’re propelled out over Marvel Super Hero Island with super-human force.

It’s the ride you love, but not like you’ve ever known it before. Stay tuned here for all the details. And I’ll see you in late summer on The Incredible Hulk Coaster!

      Of all the comments that could be made, that’s what you come up with? Dig deeper dude, there’s a brain in there trying to get out.

    Any launch date?

  3. I know just what Wade means :-) I only managed to get on last time by dieting for a week, cutting down on beer, then on the day, breathing out to reduce my chest size to get the overhead restraints to click in place. It was worth it, though tough to get round without being able to breathe.

    If you are too fat, they make you get off and you have to stand there like an ‘eejit’ waiting for the carriage with the ‘fat’ seat to come round. We termed it the ‘wait of shame’!

    I can’t wait for this classic coaster to reopen with a new fresh look! It’ll be amazing to see that old entry marquee back again, perhaps my favorite part of the whole renovation. And the new ride vehicles look amazing and futuristic! Will the new ride live up to the influence and thrill that the old ride had?
