Hydra the Revenge is a $13 million steel floorless coaster which debuted at Dorney Park in 2005. The construction process for the ride began with the removal of the Hercules roller coaster, and then the construction of Hydra throughout 2004. Here you can see the latter half, the vertical construction of the ride.

Handrails for the lift look to be complete or just about complete, as does the storage track/brake run area. A new support has popped up between the brake run and fence. Today, workers were dumping rocks all over the hillside between the pre-lift and the midway.

More of the stairs for the lift were installed today. A lot of work was done on what appears to be the storage track. It looks as though the storage track will be like Hercules, a long single track, rather than like Talon's track for each train.

The lift has been capped off, and it appears as though there will be no B&M dip on Hydra. Structure has continued to rise for what could be brake/storage/transfer track.
