The Incredible Hulk Coaster is a steel roller coaster located in Islands of Adventuremarker in Orlandomarker, Floridamarker, USAmarker. It is named for the popular comic book superhero character, the Hulk. Voted the #1 roller coaster by Discovery Channel viewers in 1999, the roller coaster is unique because it features a launch lift hill as opposed to conventional chain lifts. This means the train accelerates to 40 mph (18 m/s) in a short time (approximately two seconds) before speeding through several inversions. When the Incredible Hulk opened, it featured the world's tallest cobra roll (110 feet).

The Incredible Hulk is the only launched roller coaster produced by Bolliger & Mabillard. As a company, it is opposed to launched coasters because of perceived reliability problems, so it subcontracted the launch mechanism to another company.

The Incredible Hulk was featured at the beginning of the 1999 film House on Haunted Hill under the pseudonym "Terror Incognita".

Summary

Queue

Volunteers enter the lab of Bruce Banner with many televisions showing the story of the Hulk. Bruce is now trying to find a way to reverse the effects, which the guests are about to take part in. While walking through the lab they encounter items including the generator, the Gamma core and the towers of power. Volunteers are also able to watch the coaster through large holes in the walls as well as listen to the coaster as it does a number of passes.

At the lift hill, owen enters the Project Gamma tube and hear Bruce Banner expressing his dismay at yet another malfunction. He stammers: "Everything looks good....I think...I think this time it's going to work". A malfunction of the machine takes place by a quote saying,"Warning: Coolant Level Dropping." Bruce screams: "No....No! No!!!!!! Let Me out of here!" After that sentence riders are shot out within 2 seconds at 110 feet and are sent through a zero-g roll, down a drop and through a cobra roll. Riders complete a vertical loop, then enter a tunnel full of mist. At this point of the ride, the train's speed has reached approximately 65 mph. The train encircles the gamma tube pulling 4Gs and is sent into the back area via corkscrew. After another vertical loop which wraps around the brake run and two over-banked turns, the coaster is slowed down by the brake run before being sent down another hill to a corkscrew and turn-around. Riders then travel sideways through an onride camera zone and then to the ride's final brakes after a helix.
