HYDRA The Revenge is the first and only floorless roller coaster in Pennsylvania with a unique twist that flips riders upside-down as the train exits the station, then sends riders soaring through the sky along more than a half-mile of coiling steel roller coaster track.

  • First and only floorless roller coaster in PA
  • With a lift height 95 feet and then plummeting passengers 105 feet, Hydra is one of Dorney Park’s signature thrill rides.
  • The ride begins with a unique feature called the jojo roll, whish is the first-ever pre-lift hill inversion where riders twist upside-down after exiting the launch station
  • After racing through a rock-hewn canyon, riders experience an inclined dive loop, a zero-gravity roll, two-flat-spins with inversions, and Hydra’s signature design element, a tight cobra roll
  • Hydra The Revenge is named after the nine-headed monster of Greek Mythology.
  • In the myth, Hydra battle the hero Hercules, who succeeds in cutting off all of Hydra’s heads. However, one head is immortal and Hercules buries it under a huge boulder by a lake. In Dorney Park mythology, Hydra has risen from Dorney Park Lake and ahs take its “revenge” on Hercules, the wooden roller coaster that park retired after the 2003 season. Hydra The Revenge is located in the same spot bordering Dorney Park Lake where Hercules once stood.
