This Week at Universal Orlando: Hulk Coaster is BACK, plus Olympics Viewing Parties

New Hulk Statue at Universal Orlando

The dog days of Summer are always an great time to visit Universal Orlando, but this week is especially awesome.  Universal is generally known as having the best "thrill" rides of all the Orlando theme parks, and for years the Incredible Hulk Roller Coaster has been one of their crown jewels.  The ride has been closed recently, as it has undergone extensive renovations.  Well, the doors have been flung open, there's a new Hulk statue awaiting customers arrivals, digitally mastered sound has been created to elevate the experience for visitors from the queue to the coaster, and the latest technology has been implemented  to make this ride faster, smoother, and just more Hulk like!  Check out this video for a glimpse at the type of sound and technological enhancements we're talking about...

Also at Universal will be some very cool bleachers set up outside the NBC Sports Grille and Brew.  Now, since NBCUniversal owns both Universal Orlando and NBC, which owns the U.S. broadcast rights to the Olympics, it's the only Orlando park that will be able to offer an Olympic branded party.  The Olympics run from August 5th through the 21st, and the viewing party will begin each night at 5PM.  There will also be a bleacher themed menu available that will include fire grilled wings, large warm soft pretzels, crispy reuben rolls, southern fried sliders, Wisconsin cheese curds, deviled eggs, cuban meatloaf, char-grilled chicken, simple burgers, Wisconsin burgers, smoked beef brisket, chopped BBQ, grilled chicken caesar salads, chicken fingers, plus beer, wine, and soft drinks.
