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.
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.
- 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.
