Hydra The Revenge is a steel floorless roller coaster located at Dorney Park in Allentown, Pennsylvania, USA. It was designed by Bolliger & Mabillard. The ride features a heartline roll (Or, "Jo-Jo Roll") right out of the station.
The track is filled with sand to reduce the noise created by the roller coaster.
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.
- 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.
