Step into a comic book and fight alongside some of your favorite superheroes including Spiderman, the X-Men, the Hulk and more! This island is one of the most thrilling at Islands of Adventure, and is home to four thrill attractions including the Incredible Hulk roller coaster and the Amazing Adventures of Spiderman. Marvel Super Hero Island’s architecture and theming is straight out of a Marvel comic book, with a comic book color scheme, amplified angles, and cutouts of many of the most popular Marvel characters. Guests can also meet Spiderman, members of the X-men and other super heroes throughout the day.

OI fun fact
The buildings in Marvel Super Hero Island were painted with a special paint called Chrom-Illusion, which contains three sided crystals and produces different colors depending on the angle viewed and position of light on the object. Meaning, Marvel Super Hero Island literally changes color throughout the day!

New Hulk merchandise stand

While this news isn’t nearly as exciting as the upgrades to The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man that happened in March 2012, we did notice that as of April 2 there is a new, bigger merchandise stand in front of the Hulk coaster:

New concession & merchandise stand in front of Hulk (April 2, 2012).
