Bruce Banner is trying to cure his "gamma infection," and this time, his experiment's going to blow you out of his lab. This launch coaster from Swiss manufacturer Bolliger & Mabillard starts with a 0-40mph, two-second run up a 150-foot launch tunnel, leading into a zero-g roll, diving toward the park's lagoon. From there, you hit the ride's maximum speed of 67 miles per hour before twisting up into a cobra roll. And that's just the start of this coaster.
9/10. The initial launch is enough to warrant the coaster an 8/10, however after the first 25 seconds, the coaster loses steam. However the tension and anticipation of that initial launch is always one of the highlights of my visit. By the way, the front row is the best. - Quentin Scruggs
Really Good but not the best attraction in the park 9/10 - luca ferracuti
Love the launch a little rough tho 9/10 - Owen Scott
The only thing that keeps this from being perfect is the lack of landscaping on the back side of the attraction. Since the train flies by everything, not much thumbing would have been needed, but weeds and un-mowed lawn and drainage ditches ruins what otherwise is a refined coaster experience. And the queue, so close to being indoors and air conditioned, leaves you watching a vague and annoying video setting up something that you still can't figure out on the 20th time watching it in line. The ride itself is fantastic. Top coaster. - Ringmaster A
The launch is such a thrill... I've ridden this ride many, many times, and it still gives me goose bumps! The coaster is non stop fun. It has gotten a bit rougher in spots, but that seems to come with age and use. - Michelle Morgan
Second best of the three intence coasters at UOR. Must ride. The launch and cobra roll were great! 10/10 - Jaiden Cohen
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
