Get Hulkified on The Incredible Hulk Coaster


Prepare to let out a Hulk-sized roar. With seven inversions and top speeds of 67 mph, you’ll want to buckle in for this one.

Meet Heroes and Villains From the Marvel Universe


Keep your eyes peeled as you roam the streets for allies and enemies like Spider-Man, Captain America, Cyclops, Wolverine, Storm, Rogue, Dr. Doom and The Green Goblin.

Help Save the Statue of Liberty on The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man


Join the legendary web-slinger on a journey that will have you soaring above the streets of New York, scaling skyscrapers, and battling the Sinister Six.

It’s time to declare your allegiance! From comic books and actions figures to t-shirts, costumes, and tumblers depicting characters like Iron Man and Spider-Man, you’ll have plenty of options.

Search High and Low for Easter Eggs


From facades with familiar Marvel names to queue lines containing nods to comic book scenes, there is no shortage of hidden gems here. Bonus: Adam Kubert, the artist of the land’s massive character cutouts, hid his first name in his designs all over Marvel Super Hero Island. See how many you can spot!

Take the Plunge on Doctor Doom’s Fearfall


Dr. Doom is on a mission to extract your fear and he’s going to do it by blasting you 185 feet into the sky before hurling you back down to Earth.

Participate in interactive elements


Marvel Super Hero Island is prone to coming to life around you – look out for photo opportunities and immersive details.

    Without a doubt, the favorite of my 9-year old granddaughter and this 65-year old grandmother was The Incredible Hulk Coaster!! A must-have, Extreme Pass! We never stood in line more than 10 minutes to ride, and we rode it a lot!!!
    Thank you Marvel Super Hero Island for all of the fun, food, and face-to-face with the Heroes!!

I didn’t know Adam Kubert signed the different parts of the artwork in the Island, and I didn’t know about the different phones, but that is something, I have to look forward too next time!!!

    Dr Doom never had enough thrust from day . A big waste of time. Close it or fix it. Other rides are great.

    Well never been to Orlando Universal but a big fan of Super heroes. But after Hurricane Maria hit my island of Puerto Rico I am on my way to Aguadilla my home. My house id damaged and my family is going through bad times there. I am a 5 war Veteran Vietnam, Bosnia, Kosovo, Iraq and Afghanistan. Was on Vacations started in New York, where I visited the Cohen’s Children Hospital and dressed as Spider man for all the children there. I love helping the children. That is why I canceled my vacations and I am heading to Puerto Rico since the 22 September. But my flight has been canceled 4 times already. My next try will be from Orlando on Spirit airlines on October 6th. Hope it is not canceled. I will be in Orlando on the 6th. My flight will be at night. Hope I can swing by your Super hero place and see it. God bless you all.

    Whoever wrote this article obviously never actually visited here! How could you leave out Storm Force??? Just so you know, it rarely ever breaks down AND is the only outdoor ride in Universal that still operates in the storming rains! So out of respect for Mr. Stan Lee – you might want to rethink this “7 Things You Have To Do” list. To die-hard Marvel fans, it’s appalling to neglect one of the classic rides of Marvel Super Hero Island.
