Florida humility vs southern California's dryness also adds a factor.

I don't think it's going to be an exact clone of The Hulk

Going to bump this thread with new information about the park from the past couple.

First of all, this is the overhead permit for the park:

...and here is overhead rendering of the park:

The park itself will have 7 lands themed to Hollywood, Transformers, Kung Fu Panda, Jurassic World, Waterworld, Harry Potter and Despicable Me. The park will also have 4 coasters. A clone of Flight of the Hippogriff at Islands of Adventure, Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Studios Japan, a rumoured Despicable Me themed kiddie coaster going in the Despicable Me area, a clone of Incredible Hulk from Islands of Adventure but themed to Transformers, and a rumoured coaster for the Jurassic World section of the park.

Interestingly enough, track for what is believed to be the Hulk clone was spotted at Clermont Steel Fabricators back in May. This is a video highlight it:



Here's also a rendering of the Jurassic World area, as well as the rumoured coaster:

The park is also rumoured to have clones of Fast & Furious: Supercharged , Transformers: The Ride 3D, Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey and Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem. It is also rumoured that the Harry Potter coaster being built at Islands of Adventure might be coming to the Beijing sometime after the park opens in 2020, since there is a plot of land next to WWoHP area for a future expansion.

To end this post, here's a Satellite view of the construction site:

I think that's everything for now. Keep in mind that this is just rumoured at the moment and none of it is official just yet.

Looks awesome! A Hulk clone would do wonders for this park... but I wish Disney would make a thrill ride like Spiderman at IOA and USJ, themed to Spiderman.
1. Voyage 2. Intimidator 305 3. Maverick 4. Skyrush 5. Mindbender (Galaxyland) 6. Fury 325 7. Kumba 8. Goliath (Six Flags Over Georgia) 9. The Beast 10. Phoenix

Out of 139 creds

Despite its size I am kind of amazed another park hasn't bothered cloning Hulk with a more intelligent launching method.

This ride will be part of the Jurassic World themed area of the park.

Alot of work has taken place on the Hulk clone as of late:

Also, for those wondering about the launch system this will use, well... this image will provide your answer:

In other news, another coaster has gone up at the park. This is for the Flight of the Hippogriff coaster at the Harry Potter section of the park. Although this one will be a clone of the one at Universal Studios Hollywood, which is a Mack Youngstar Coaster:

Interesting to see all the differences in shaping...the Zero G and Cobra Roll are very notably tweaked versus the original and retracked Orlando Hulk. The 0G looks much rounder and the Cobra has a wider stance at top vs bottom, staying higher and more banked in the middle. Looks like the first corkscrew has also been modified to have a more fluid exit. It's a clone but it looks like almost everything has been revised.
