I originally posted this on the main page as a comment on the story about Incredible Hulk's reopening and thought it might make a good discussion topic. What are your thoughts on why we haven't seen a fully realized attraction like the ones I suggest yet?
I'm not sure why I had such high hopes for significantly enhanced themeing as I knew the same exact track layout, loading station, etc. would be used, but I'm still disappointed after seeing videos online. As a coaster alone, Hulk rules. As a Universal Orlando attraction, it makes me feel like I accidentally wandered into a Six Flags. HRR is the worst offender of this.
It amazes me that the code has been cracked for how to successfully combine awesomely themed and immersive dark ride with roller coaster (Mummy) yet neither Universal or Disney has taken it to the next level with more intense coaster elements, multiple alternating spurts of coaster thrills and show scenes, and with Hulk specifically, perhaps even indoor and outdoor transitions. We either get straight coaster (Hulk) or simulator on a coaster track with few coaster elements (Gringotts). What gives?Tweet
