The Incredible Hulk is a sitting roller coaster situated in Universal Orlando’s Islands of Adventure. The ride was manufactured by Bolliger & Mabillard and opened on May 28, 1999.
Riders board the train and are sent into the gamma-ray accelerator. The train then is propelled from the gamma-ray accelerator at a speed of 40 MPH. The launch takes less than two seconds, and sends riders into a zero-g roll, down a 105-foot drop, and then into a cobra roll. The train then completes a vertical loop and enters a tunnel of mist. From there, the train completes a corkscrew into the back area of the ride and enters another loop. The train then enters a brake run surrounded by two over-banked turns, goes down another hill, enters a corkscrewm and turns around to the camera zone. Finally there is one last helix and the train enters its final brake run before riders depart at the unload.
