Popeye & Bluto's Bilge-Rat Barges

Popeye & Bluto's Bilge-Rat Barges

Popeye and Bluto's Bilge-Rat Barges is by far one of the best rides to be on in the midst of a hot summer day at Islands of Adventure because the only other thing you get out of this ride besides a bunch of laughs and excitement is totally waterlogged clothing!

The Incredible Hulk Coaster

The Incredible Hulk Coaster

The Incredible Hulk roller coaster at Islands of Adventure is one intense ride that places you on a particle accelerator that will be used in testing an experiment on Dr. Bruce Banner.

As the transformation occurs, every particle in your bodies whips around soaring, dipping, looping through a maze of steel track to simulate how rapid the particles are moving through your bodies. This ride is by far one of the most epic roller coasters to grace Universal Studios with a special mechanism that rockets the carts off the line at 60 mph in less than 4 seconds.

Fight the lines and get on the Incredible Hulk roller coaster and it is a guarantee you will be on again and again without question. Endure the radioactive blast once, and be transformed forever!
