Universal reveals more detail about its new Hulk coaster
May 9, 2016, 8:34 AM ·
Universal Orlando is dropping more teasers about its renovated Incredible Hulk coaster, which will debut sometime this summer.
Universal tore down the old Hulk last year and has been installing a fresh Bolliger & Mabillard track, following Hulk's old design. The new version of the Hulk coaster will feature a new marquee, queue, and storyline, along with new trains and an on-board original musical score. Universal detailed those new features in an announcement this morning.
From the park's press release:
General Thaddeus Ross is calling for volunteers for a new experiment. Your only warning is that you’ll be subjected to high levels of gamma radiation through a process called Hulk-a-fication – a potentially life-altering process first introduced by Dr. Bruce Banner.
The end result is said to give subjects magnificent strength and a forceful amount of energy. Will you emerge as the military’s next super soldier…or something else entirely?
The answer, of course, is that you will be transformed into riders on a high-speed launch coaster that promises a smoother track and even more thrilling experience than fans enjoyed on the old version of the Hulk coaster, which initially won raves but lost some fans over the years as the quality of the ride deteriorated.
The Incredible Hulk Coaster will reopen this summer — but a specific opening date was not among the details revealed by Universal today.
