Ride a flying bike with everyone's favorite alien, E.T., and discover his other-wordly home, home to wondrous space creatures, in E.T.'s Adventure. You'll drop and spin (but you won't turn green) when you virtually experience The Incredible Hulk Coaster; get ready for butterflies in your stomach, even from a screen.
