This amazing ride starts out in Bruce Banner's laboratory. He goes through with another attempt to get rid of his I like to call "gamma infection". Just like his other attempts it doesn't work but instead of watching it we get to ride his failure, but I assure you this is no failure of a ride.
This Bolliger & Mabillard made ride starts out with a bang after his failed attempt with a 0-40mph launch in 2 seconds up a 150 foot launch tunnel. At the top and opening of the tunnel the green cars fire right out at 40 mph and go through an intense zero-g roll before plummeting near the giant Islands of Adventure lake. At this point the ride has reached its top speed of a whopping 67 mph. After this point in the ride you are thrown into a giant cobra roll where it reaches its maximum height of 110 ft. After this The ride goes through another giant element the big loop and then dips under a misty bridge in a tunnel. After wrapping around the original purple and green tunnel your train goes through some serious twisted metal before hitting the final brake run and stopping in the station.
It was a good ride, but too rough - Anthony Murphy
The launch is "incredible" and after that its another wild steel coaster. The only complaint is that I found the whole ride pretty shaky. - Jeff Moon
Still one of the best coasters around. I'll never get tired of riding. You never get used to that launch, it is absolutely insane. Those who have ridden Hulk know exactly what I'm talking about. - Tim Taylor
The best! If you are afraid of the first climb, this ride will fly right through it !!! - B Higgins
One of the best coasters out and the first half is perfect! The second half is less intense, but still great! It has some great theming and I find it to be one of the most iconic and photogenic roller coasters. - Bryce McGibeny
This ride is amazing! It gets a 10 based on its launch alone. Everyone should ride this coaster once in their lives. - Brandon Lee
As incredible as the hulk is, (okay, maybe that's a little cheesy) it's really showing age. Universal needs a new coaster that's really breathtaking like this one. HRRR is just bumpy and it's what you get when you try to build a coaster with such little land. Dragon Challenge? I'm not even going to start on what it's become. Back to the Hulk, I find it the best coaster in Florida. Rides like this in FL make it obvious why Six Flags could not even compete. - Bradley Keith
this ride and the magnum are one of my favorate rides to do with freinds its not my favorate ride for thrills but when u have five freinds with u this ride is awesome even without them i love it the launch is one of the most amazing feelings i have felt and then when ur falling down ur first drop and looking into the beautifull lake its breathtaking then its the cobra roll which is my favorate roller coaster track peice then after that the train does a loop and a huge one its one of those loops that i actually feel myself upside down for more then 2 seconds the rest of the ride is not as exciting but its still great one of the best coasters i know! - ed shaheen
A great coaster with a special design to make it sound like the Hulk roaring as it flies around the track. Some innovative design choices make it stand out. - Sean Huckel
Hulkie holds a huge place in my heart. I know I sound like a two year old but this was my first big coaster and I love it. The launch is spectacular and the rest is too. 10\10 great freaking ride! - Karly Tenney
2nd best coaster in orlando - robert morris
