No other B&M coaster can make that roaring sound.It sounds so cool but scary.How did they do that and what do u think about it.

all B&Ms roar except for those with sand in them. it is all to do with air rushing though the rails and box section or something

Actually, thats not entirely true... All B&M do "roar" to a certain extent, however the Hulk's roar is different than all other B&M coasters. If you've seen the interview with the guys who created the park(Mark Woodbury and Dale Mason), on the "Roller Coaster Thrills" DVD, you'd know that in fact they tested numerous types of wheels, each with different polyeurothane compositions, untill they got the desired roar they were looking for... So it's all in the wheels, not the spine when it comes to Hulk. I'd say that just as intended, the sound adds to the amazing theme of the coaster, and certainly attracts riders to it from all over the park...

It's no surprise that everyone turns left towards the Hulk when they enter the park.

Every time we've been at IOA, we go to the right and Suess Island.

...just saying.

As do I my friend... However, not for Seuss Island, but of course for Dueling Dragons (I suspect that may be what you meant :) ) You have to admit though, the reason going right first thing in the morning always works out so well is because of the fact that the vast majority of the people do go right. You cant blame em... To most Superhero Island does look alot more attractive than Seuss Island. I've been at Dueling Dragons many mornings where it takes a good 45 minutes to an hour after opening for the crowds to make their way to the ride... Sure some people head right over (those who know ;) ), but with the capacity they can handle, not enough to make a significant line.

FCR, the problem with doing that is then they don't duel in the morning when nobody is there. At least, that's what happened when I went in November. Anyway, back on topic, I think Hulk's sound is awesome. It's very unique and it does fit the theme of a gamma acclerator or whatever.

Yeah the atmosphere of the Incredible Hulk Coaster is awesome. Those employers have to wear those loud and ugly yellow-green suits for the Hulk. Its a really kool coaster.

Actually FloridaCoasterRider, I have a small daughter so we are heading to Suess Island, but DD is certainly the next stop.

Then again I went to IOA 5 times while I lived in Florida and never saw huge crowds there. I've never waited more than 20 or 25 minutes for any ride in the park. One visit we made (March 1, 2000) when my family visited from PA, it was so dead that we not only walked on to Spiderman, but the four of us got a car all to ourselves.

We've just had that kind of luck the last few years with crowds. Yesterday at Dorney we waited approximately 35 minutes for Talon. It's the longest I've stood in line for a ride since our Cedar Point Trip in 2000.
