From official website, 2017:
“Step inside a high-security research compound commanded by General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross. You’ve bravely volunteered to be a test subject for a (potentially life-altering) science experiment based on Dr. Bruce Banner’s research. At the General’s word, your group is blasted with gamma radiation.
Suddenly, you feel unstoppable.
Before you can blink, you’re catapulted out with the force of a fighter jet. Hulk-like power propels you upside down into a weightless zero-gravity roll, racing faster and faster down the track. Hang on with superhuman strength as this high-speed, red-line rampage smashes its way through the sky.”
From Universal Orlando Press pack, 2007:
‘The Incredible Hulk Coaster at Universal’s Islands of Adventure theme park gives riders a series of thrills unlike any roller coaster experience anywhere. From the g-force power of the ride’s launch catapult , hurling riders up a 150-foot tunnel with the same thrust as a U.S. Air Force F-16 fighter jet, to the zero-g ‘Heartline’ roll and seven inversions at speeds up to 60 miles per hour – the Incredible Hulk leaves passengers gasping for more.’
- The ride has a total of seven inversions and two subterranean trenches.
- You’ll be launched upward of 150 feet and reach a top speed of 67 mph.
