Description And Comments
The Incredible Hulk’s towering loops—some of the most iconic elements of the IOA skyline—were completely disassembled in 2016 and rebuilt from scratch. Now the big green guy has roared back to life with a brand-new track (which follows the same path as the original), trains with flashing lights, and a synchronized sound track composed by Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy. Add in a revamped entryway and queue building with 21st-century aesthetics, plus new special effects in the launch tube, and one of Florida’s best coasters is better than ever.
There’s a story line, but it’s of no importance whatsoever. Just know this: You’ll be shot like a cannonball from 0 to 40 mph in 2 seconds; then you’ll be flung upside down 100 feet off the ground, which will, of course, induce weightlessness. Then it’s a mere six rollovers, punctuated by two plunges into holes in the ground, before you’re allowed to get out and throw up.
Seriously, the Hulk is a great coaster, providing a ride comparable to that of Montu at Busch Gardens with the added thrill of an accelerated launch instead of the more typical uphill crank.
- This attraction participates in Universal Express.
- This attraction has a Single Rider line.
Skip the Wizarding World attractions in the early morning and ride The Incredible Hulk Coaster first thing. Alternatively, if you insist on going to Hogsmeade at rope drop (or you’re eligible for early admission), ride Hulk immediately after you’ve enjoyed the Potter attractions.
Stop by the electronic lockers near the entrance of the Hulk to deposit any items that might depart your person during the coaster’s seven inversions. Be prepared to pat down your pockets for loose change, or you’ll be pulled aside for a TSA-style wanding after triggering the metal detectors.
When you reach the boarding area, note that the Hulk has a separate line for those who want to ride in the first row. A singles line is available during peak times, but you may not notice it at first, as this reader attests:
The single-rider line is kind of hard to find—ask where it is. I stood in the standby line for 20 minutes before I realized my mistake.

The blue bars represent the average "peak" wait time (that is, how long the line will at its busiest). The bottom and top black lines represent the range of peak wait times to expect (for you fellow nerds out there: it's the 5th percentile and 95th percentile of peak wait times). Please note that these are estimates, and for a better forecast for your travel dates, see The Incredible Hulk Coaster Wait Times.
