The Incredible Hulk Coaster®

The Incredible Hulk Coaster is a launched roller coaster located at Universal's Islands of Adventure within the Universal Orlando Resort. Designed by Werner Stengel and manufactured by Bolliger & Mabillard (B&M), the roller coaster is themed after Marvel's Hulk and opened to the public on May 28, 1999. It is the first B&M coaster themed to a Marvel Comics superhero character and the first to feature a launch design, a system that was primarily implemented by Universal Creative and MTS Systems Corporation. The Incredible Hulk Coaster's launched lift hill accelerates the train up to 40 mph (64 km/h) in approximately two seconds and eventually reaches a maximum speed of 67 mph (108 km/h). Riders experience seven inversions throughout the course of the 3,670-foot-long (1,120 m) ride, which was positively received when it opened. The park temporarily closed the coaster on September 8, 2015, for a major refurbishment that included an updated line queue, a modified theme, new sections of track, and new trains that feature on-board audio. It reopened to the public on August 4, 2016.
