A Hulk theory....rubbish or something in it?

    We had a long debate this morning over breakfast...no not the EU thingy but about the hulk at Islands of Adventure. We can't remember any other huge ride like this that has been dismantled and rebuilt again. Was there a problem with the ride they haven't revealed and they've had to rebuild it? I've often thought those supports in the water looked a bit dodgy. They've re done all the footings in the water for the new ride....interesting (rubs chin in Sherlock Holmes kind of way ;))....just me being suspicious or was it just time for a new track?

    dont know but after alton towers, the safer the better, i suppose anything which stands in water will eventually weaken

    Yeah, I agree it seems an awful long time for the rehab, but if that's what's needed to keep it safe, I'm pleased it's being done. They could probably build a new coaster quicker.
