About Universal's Islands of Adventure:

  • The Lighthouse of Alexandria is the icon of the park. This is actually a functioning lighthouse and sends out a bright beam of light which leads visitors to the park's front gates. It is modeled after the actual Lighthouse of Alexandria, which was the tallest man-made structure in the world.
  • In 2015, The Incredible Hulk roller coaster underwent refurbishment. When the attraction reopened, guests noticed a change to the queue line, the story, and on ride audio. The biggest change was the new track. When guests enter the queue for the ride, you'll notice the Incredible Hulk himself with an archway made out of two pieces of coaster track. This was actually the original track that has been repurposed into a new grand entryway.
