The Incredible Hulk Coaster is a steel launched roller coaster located at Universal's Islands of Adventure in Orlando, Florida, USA. It is named for the popular comic book superhero character, the Incredible Hulk.

It features an upwards tire propelled launch; however this was subcontracted to a separate company. It was the first and only launch on a Bolliger & Mabillard until the opening of Thunderbird at Holiday World.

History[edit | edit source]

The Incredible Hulk Coaster was closed on September 8, 2015 for an overhaul.[1] In late September, pieces of track were removed from the ride. By November, almost all of the ride had been removed, with only the enclosed lift hill and station left. It reopened in August 2016.[2] Bolliger & Mabillard replaced the ride hardware. In January 2016, the new track and supports began to be built. In late March 2016, the ride's new track and supports were finished, and Universal moved on to thematic works. On May 19, 2016, the coaster began testing with its new track and trains. Two months later, on August 1, the ride began technical rehearsals in preparation for an official opening on August 4. The refurbishment involved new track, a new queue line and new launch effects.
