Universal Orlando Resort (USO, IOA) Discussion Thread

P. 611: Full Halloween Horror Nights 2021 lineup revealed!

Recommended Posts

We were fortunate enough to meet with some members of the Creative team today at the park. Obviously they couldn't go into great detail about the Hulk project but I know fans will be happy. The team has some great things planned.

Kumba probably has the most miles on it in terms of B&M coasters, I guess we'll have to see if it ever gets the 'Hulk' treatment or just gets removed altogether.

 

 

An image from the Hubble Telescope of how the Universe would look after Kumba is removed altogether.

Taking away Kumba even melted the ice caps.

 

In all seriousness, I will physically fight you if you don't like Kumba.

I should of been more specific as the ride that was planned for Dubai essentially picked up and moved to Singapore. The ride plans not specifically the track.

 

 

Also False

 

From the beginning, both USD and USS were always designed to have Revenge of the Mummy - both with track layouts virtually identical to USF

 

To be fair, even though USD and USS share(d) the same track layout as USF, the show for USS is pretty different than the USF version. USS isn't about riding the movie like USF is and there's a lot of things Universal improved upon. Whether or not USD was going to be the same show as USF is up in the air since it was never built, but I can guarantee the track for Dubai was not used in the Singapore version.

 

No offense EastCoastn7, but I'm listening the guy that worked at Universal and has first hand knowledge of the situation, in this case CoasterFEV.

I'm very interested to see what The Incredible Hulk looks like once it returns... I wonder if it will be a carbon copy of the previous ride, launch system and all, or if they will use rebuild as an opportunity to make any changes to the ride layout or launch mechanisms.

The layout won't be changing from what we were told, however there is a possibility that some sections could be reshaped. There will be something different about the launch system and the trains are getting some modernization.

 

Was back there again today. Not sure if this has been posted but this piece is clearly marked as scrap. Looks like there are red and blue dots now marking other sections.

Thanks for the update Your image isn't loading though, I'd love to see it, and my normal trick of opening in a new tab doesn't seem to work. I don't think the whole ride will be replaced because otherwise they wouldn't be marking certain sections of track, they'd just tear it down, but they're definitely doing this refurb properly!

Bummer, since Hulk was designed just before B&M began mixing vagisil into the ink they print their blueprints with.

Hey no worries but now I'm curious, does this mean the story for Dubai Mummy was that of Orlando? Essentially a clone? Was it a one of kind that was never built? Please I'd love to know more, the Mummy is one of my all time favorites!

I wasn't given the impression that the ride would be toned down at all.

I think the new launch has been all but confirmed as this was mentioned in the original permit application along with the new queue line theming elements. There are pictures of a gigantic crane near the first half of the ride here: http://www.coasteroftheday.com/cotd-park-trip-report-blog/the-incredible-hulk-deconstruction-at-islands-of-adventure so it looks like they'll be starting to take down the first half of the ride soon
