Attraction Tickets Review – A real treat for the thrill seeker, even though you know your not going to clash with the other coaster, when you flying around at 55 mph you kind of think you will. Great ride, I couldn’t stop queuing.
You know those jumping bean rides for kids that give you a funny feeling in your belly? Well imagine one of those but 150 feet in the air! The initial launch at the beginning of the ride uses more thrust than a 747 jet engine and accelerates faster than the space shuttle. Doctor Doom’s Fearfall has two towers that each stand 200 feet tall.
Height to ride – 52″
Top Speed – Its a drop ride so pretty hard to estimate.
Height reached – 150 feet
Attraction Tickets Review – A heart stopping scream-a-thon. Loved the suspense just before take off. Shame it doesn’t last longer.

The Hulk ride at Island’s of Adventure universal studios transports you from sunny Orlando to the labroatory of Dr Bruce Banner. It is a front facing leg dangling ride of pure pace and power. You accelerate from zero to 40 mph in two seconds flat, with the force equal to that of a jet taking off an aircraft carrier. The world turns upside down as you experience a weightless “zero g” roll.
Height to ride – 56″
Top Speed – 67mph
Height reached – 150ft
Attraction Tickets Review – This was my favourite ride at Island’s of Adventure, the 0 to 40 mph start in the darkly lit tunnel was exhilarating and bursting out in to the bright sunshine gave your senses a bit of a shake before the coaster shakes your body. Highly recommended for the adrenaline junky. Rode it 5 times and it wasn’t enough.
