Written by Nicholas Kalscheuer
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.
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
