    That looks like the display that was in the Preview center at the back of Universal Studios.

    Anyone notice the top of the hulk cannon? Someone break it, or was it supposed to look mangled?

    I think it was posed to be like that....like the tube exploding from the gamm rays or sumthin. Looks preety much like it was made liek that because its hard to bend plastic like that from dropping it or pulling it off. ;)

    Hey Earl, whats the scoop?

    It looks intentional in the pic...so is there any other little tidbits you can share that were changed in production of IOA?

    On the Hulk, I think I like the complete cannon, it makes for a much nicer profile, and landscape.
    (Of course Earl, we could suggest that is what it would look like after the model deluge system kicked in??? just imagine the que house)


    If I am correct, only 2 scaled models were created.

    Only pictures you would find, are snapshots people took, or equivalent artist conceptions.

    Ah, back in the day when the Gamma Cannon was really elaborate. The end of the tube blown off, and a comic book-ish explosion blast that traveled from the top of the cannon to the ground.

    Unfortunately, that went the way of the giant armillary sphere in the Port of Entry that would've very nicely mirrored the USF globe, the propane equipped top of the lighthouse, and several other things that I cannot, unfortunately, remember off the top of my head.

    In the end though, these things are relatively minor- but they would've been extremely nice. ESPECIALLY the Hulk cannon... not to mention the interior effects (which we can all hope may be done... someday).

    Sorry, The Deluge System is a fire surpression system on the lift of hulk (where all the tires are). We were talking about that in a few posts over in the Coaster Rollback Topic.

    Just what happens if it is used? What are the consequences of activating it?

    Earl would be the one who could tell us better, but as I understand the system, a "Wall of Water" would rush down the lift, and would probably inflict major damage to the ride components...

    Hulk, as a backwards water ride???? I really would turn green. j/k
