Does Hulk at IOA have frequent problems?

I was just thinking... Hulk is a coaster you never here about them having technical difficulties with. Why is that?

Come to think about it, everytime I have been there, Hulk has never had a problem. A good mantenice crew I would say. Meanwhile next door spidey always has its share of problems. Allthough the last couple of times ive been there its been ok.

That's the beauty of Orlando theme parks. Service is regarded as the key to success.

Also, B&M makes quality coasters that NEVER seem to have problems. I have had the luck (and pleasure!) of riding a good 15 or 20 different B&Ms, and have only once seen one down. (BKF, due to a lightning strike. Hardly B&M's problem.)

Just goes to show that you get what you pay for!

In all my years, the only B&M i've ever seen down for an extended period of time was Raptor in 96. and that was only for the morning.

It's really amazing to watch a 3 train B&M at work. Every train out their perfect intervals, the people just rushing on and on. I love it!

Yeah. What about Duelling Dragons? I notice red dragon brakes down most of the time.

Even though it is much lower-tech, this must be the launched-coaster with the least number of problems. Plus it's an uphill launch!

Hulk uses a mechanical launch system which is much more reliable than LIMs. However it is also less powerful. As compared to Spiderman, the Hulk is about 1% as complex. And, yes, B&Ms do seem to be amoung the most reliable of coasters.
