Rad Hazard is a Hard/Expert boat that is featured in Hydro Thunder, Hydro Thunder Hurricane, and Hydro Thunder GO.

AppearanceEdit

Hydro ThunderEdit

Rad Hazard is a very low-slung, hydroplane-style boat that has two hulls that form a somewhat circular profile. It also has a rear wing at the back with two blue lights, one on either side. On the sides of the boat are painted nuclear hazard symbols.

DescriptionEdit

Hydro ThunderEdit

Created with scrap parts found outside the U.S. Government Area 51 property, Rad Hazard is recommended for the most experienced racers. Use the boosters to help you take corners better. The fast Mighty Hull activation time helps to keep the competition away. Fast and powerful, Rad Hazard is a boat to be reckoned with.

Hydro Thunder HurricaneEdit

Short, wide, slippery and fast this strange little hybrid is tricky to master. Keep a firm hand through the turns and reap rewards in the air. Once this baby gets airborne you'll feel like you're in a flying saucer.

Hydro Thunder HurricaneEdit

Rad Hazard's handling is quite slippery, but its controllability while airborne is extraordinary (and is rated a perfect 10/10 because of it). It also has a very high speed and acceleration. The boat is also a popular choice in online multiplayer, as Rad Hazard players are a common sight in that mode.

TriviaEdit

  • Rad Hazard did not appear in the unreleased sequel, Hydro Thunder 2.
  • The only other boat in the original game to have been built from salvaged parts is Miss Behave.
  • Rad Hazard wasn't described in Hydro Thunder Hurricane as having been built from scrap parts, therefore supporting the possibility of Hurricane taking place in a separate continuity than in the original game.
  • Rad Hazard's Henderscheid engine is named after Dale Henderscheid, who was one of the artists on the original game's development team.
    • In the manuals for the console ports, however, Rad Hazard's engine is described as being "some form of antimatter, subatomic energy".
  • Despite not being a catamaran like Damn the Torpedoes or Thresher, it is still classified as an Open Class boat, due to having two hulls of equal proportion. But, in Hurricane it is depicted as being a three-hulled boat, which would have made it an Ultimate Class boat, but such classifications do not exist in Hurricane
