Hydra The Revenge is a Bolliger & Mabillard floorless roller coaster located at Dorney Park in Allentown, Pennsylvania, USA. The ride features a Barrel Roll (Or, "Jo-Jo Roll") right out of the station and unlike most other roller coasters built by Bolliger & Mabillard, it has no predrop after the lift.

Elements

Name[edit]

The coaster is named in honor of the wooden coaster it replaced, Hercules. It is interesting that Hydra replaced Hercules while in Greek mythology, Hercules conquered the Hydra.

Trivia[edit]

  • Many coaster enthusiasts debate whether Hydra has 6 or 7 inversions, as some say the dive loop does not completely invert riders
  • Hydra features the world's first and only on-ride camera that photographs riders while upside-down. The camera is located in the Heartline roll.
