The ride is themed after the popular comic book superhero character, the Hulk. The ride opened on May 28, 1999 and will close on September 8 2015 for enhancements. It is expected to reopen in Summer 2016.
ORLANDO, FLORIDA — Doug Boemler Wareing of Universal Orlando issued this statement, which confirmed that the Hulk Roller Coaster will be closed for up to eight months to undergo an overhaul:
“The Incredible Hulk Coaster will be getting some great, new enhancements to its storyline, ride vehicles and overall experience. That work means we’ll have to close the attraction beginning Sept. 8. It will roar back to life next summer and we’ll keep you posted on the details.
“In the meantime, be sure to check out the other great, thrilling, experiences at Universal’s Islands of Adventure, including Dr. Doom’s FearFall, Dragon Challenge, Jurassic Park River Adventure and more.
“I’ve been lucky enough to get a sneak peek at plans for The Incredible Hulk Coaster, and I can tell you the overall experience is going to feel more immersive and high-tech. But don’t worry—the attraction will still have the same “Incredible” personality that makes it one of America’s most popular coasters.”
