If you want to conquer the beast, it should be done on a Thursday when school's in. The Hulk was, as they say, Incredible.
First off - we practically ran through the maze of ropes and stantions to the top of the ride. We asked the ticket lady (she looked like Florida Evans from Good Times) about the FastPass and she literally looked from left to right and waved her hand Carol Merrill style and said, "Honey. Do you see anyone here? It's empty, child, don't bother. You ain't gonna see no lines."
And we didn't!
We even got to sit in the front seat. People who have used the phrase What a rush! don't know from Jack unless they've been in the front seat of this ride. Holy crap was it was crazy fun. I don't want to ruin it for Hulk Virgins so don't read the next sentence if you are one of those. The climb to the top of the drop isn't made of the usual fare...it creeps along until you are 3/4 of the way there and then it propels you rocket-style up the last portion and dumps you over the crest to fall screaming for a good five seconds down the first fall. Oooooh! It's SO good.
I felt a little vomity after that one (it was the first one) so I staved off from the second ride, which was the Spiderman Experience. I'm told we must return so I can see what that one is all about. I'm into coming back.
But only on a Thursday when school is in.
More on the vacay later, I have to attend to my guests for another half day and they are off in the wee hours tomorrow.
