Things are picking up steam at Marvel Super Hero Island in Islands of Adventure, as most of the Incredible Hulk Coaster’s track is back, baby! Within a couple of weeks I can imagine (nearly) all of the track will be back in place, however, that is not the only thing getting an upgrade during this renovation. It still looks like much work is to be done in and around the queue, and who knows how long the new and improved launch will take to install and perfect. Still, with Universal shooting for a summer re-opening date, here’s hoping it’ll all be done and ready by busy season. See the video below as well as some screenshots to see how the Hulk’s shiny new track is starting to look. It’s good seeing the skyline start to come back, just like an old friend returning. Stay tuned for more Universal news and updates!
Great to see the skyline returning to normal again

New footers installed, notice the double footers now in use where there used to only be one
The nearby locker area is being completely rebuilt
Perhaps they will be adding more lockers, since no carry on items of any kind are permitted now

Can’t wait to hear this baby roar back to life soon
