Hydra The Revenge is a steel floorless roller coaster located at Dorney Park in Allentown, Pennsylvania, USA. It was designed by Bolliger & Mabillard and opened on May 7, 2005. Hydra The Revenge replaced a Dinn Corporation wooden roller coaster named Hercules, which closed in 2003. The ride features a heartline roll (Or, "Jo-Jo Roll") right out of the station.
Design[edit | edit source]
The track is filled with sand to reduce the noise created by the roller coaster.
Name[edit | edit source]
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 | edit source]
- 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.
