Hulk Fans Rejoice as the Roller Coaster Gets Re-Assembled
While some Hulk fans were disappointed by finding their favorite roller coaster completely disassembled during the Fall of 2015, the new and improved version is finally coming together at Universal's Islands of Adventure
Theme park brands are as iconic as the attractions that draw their unique skylines and to see such a massive structure missing has made Hulk fans wonder if this is just Universal playing a prank on them. However, that is far from the truth as the Hulk was already scheduled for major maintenance to enhance not only the experience, but also provide a refreshed version that will attract fans looking for roller coaster excitement.
Word has it that the new Hulk will be faster and better than ever before and while we cannot confirm this yet, we can certainly expect to see new roller coaster carts, signage and even a new story to go along with the refresh. This roller coaster has been one of the major draws for Universal's Islands of Adventure since the park first opened in 1999. The expected re-opening is some time between the spring and summer season.
Now, Universal's Islands of Adventure guests can still get their roller coaster fix with the Dragon Challenge at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Formerly named Dueling Dragons, this twin-track roller coaster is fast and pushes G-forces like a fighter pilot does on a jet. So if you are planning to visit Universal Studios before the Hulk re-opens, know that you can still find that adrenaline rush in the Dragon Challenge.
And as always, you should book your stay with Vista Cay Resort by Millenium, which is located 5 minutes from Universal Studios and offers a convenient and affordable alternative to big-brand resorts where you are just a room number.
