I dont see how people are going to ride roller coasters and expect a gentle, easy ride. Its a friggin giant! The launch is excellent, theres no waiting as you hear the annoying chain lift. If your in the front seat you get an excellent feeling as youre turned upside down, zooming out of the tunnel. The inversions are awesome, and it is a centerpiece to the IOA skyline. If you can get through the park in four hours, then you must of skipped several rides and sped through the most interesting parts. Relax, its Universal!

Excellent steel coaster and a fantastic launch. Also if youve seen house on haunted hill i believe this is the same coaster so the whole time is was riding it i was laughing about that. Maybe the best steel ive been on with otsr.

This was one crazy ride! The launch is certianly cool since your at a steeper angle than most other launches. Everything about this coaster is cool.

B&M make great coasters, and this is no exception. The launch is amazing, and in the front seat phenomenal. Being flipped upside down before plunging towards a lake is one of the most intense experiences in Orlando. The cobra roll and loop are fantastic as is the dip under the bridge. However the coaster kinda loses it after this, and although fun its not particulary scary. In fact the ride is almost serene after the final corkscrew. Still, the start of the ride never loses its punch. The ride is smooth, and the B&M restraints are as good as ever. Theres no theming on the ride, which is a shame, but overall this ride is a real thriller, and thanks to efficient loading and high capacity theres rarely a long line.

First, I would like to say that, in general, this ride is highly over-rated. Since it is located in one of the most visited parks in the country, many people ride this without the experience of knowing what other coasters are about. But anyway, the first half of this ride is excellent. It is very smooth and fast, however after the mid-course brakes, the ride gets way to slow and just looses it punch.

Great ride. The first half of this ride is so so awesome, that the second half almost feels like a let down. The themeing is also great.

Hulk is, quite simply, one of the greatest roller coasters ever built. It has an amazing uphill tire-driven launch and seven impressive inversions of various styles. However, to my taste, those factors are only part of what makes Hulk so spectacular. I find that many looping coasters only seem to care about how many loops they put in; its entertaining enough, but its also kind of a freak show. The great looping rides, to my taste, are ones that have other great coaster traits and care about more than the loops. Hulk has good pacing, keeps lots of speed, has surprising exits to some inversions, a misty dive under a walkway, a great helix and direction changes, and even a neat bit of airtime off the brake run. Combine this stuff with all the loops and that launch, plus some decent theming, and I dont think oyu can do a heck of a lot better.

Dont read the reviews before you ride this for the 1st time, its best to go in expecting nothing

I held EXTREMELY high expectations for this coaster and it did deliver, but its not the best B&M Ive been on. I liked the layout, which deviates from most B&M loopers, and of course the launch. I didnt like the roughness though. Its not painful but considering that the coaster is not that old makes it unusual, its just kind of annoying. It persisted through the entire ride too which I didnt like. Ill give this ride credit though, I started to brown out in the Cobra Roll! The coaster doesnt slow down much during the course either which makes it different from most loopers Ive been on. I guess Ill sum it up and say that its a good ride but its a bit over-hyped.

The Incredible Hulk Coaster was my first of the three coasters I have ridden (12 trips on the Hulk to this date with 4 front row). The theming was outstanding throughout the surroundings and waiting areas. The ride definately played a trick on me by hiding the nature of the rides launch up until the point the motors kicked in and I was in it! (they hide the launch area via a long inclined tube so that onlookers dont notice). That aspect of the ride made my first coaster experience one I will always alway want to relive. The best part of the lauch is that you are greeted with a sharp zero G inversion immedialtly after exiting the launch tube - one instant I was on a slow incline and the next I was inverted way above the park (Outstanding). After the initial launch I was awed by the deep drop and entrance into the massive cobra roll and subsequent below lake/water level tunnel (with steam) and large inversion loop. To keep from explaing the rest of the coaster piecewise, I will simply say that the remaining loop and other less notable but very important elements serve well in finishing the ride while slowly lowering the thrill level gradually. Front row is truly shocking on this ride(I highly recommend). I will always hold this machine with the highest of regards because it was my first coaster; however, that is not why I am giving it a ten - It truly earned every one of my points through cleverness and "just plain good" engineering.
