A direct sequel called ''VideoGame/HydroThunderHurricane'' was released in July 2010 for the XboxLiveArcade. ''Hurricane'' was developed by Vector Unit, a new dev team formed by two people who worked on the "''TwistedMetal'' [[RecycledInSpace in the water]]" game ''Blood Wake''. Meanwhile, the arcades got a SpiritualSuccessor called ''[[VideoGame/H2Overdrive H2Overdrive]]'' courtesy of [[Creator/EugeneJarvis Raw Thrills]] and Specular Interactive, which just happens to largely be the original ''Hydro Thunder'' development team.

** Don't forget the boost modes on all the boats. A hydro that boosts by firing up a ''jet engine'' is totally BadAss!

''Hydro Thunder'' is an ArcadeGame from Creator/MidwayGames that was created in 1999. It's a simple arcade racing game in which you pilot a selection of high-speed racing boats in some 9 (plus 4 bonus) locations, often in a place that isn't suitable for such boats to be racing at, and in some cases, the government of where ever you'd be racing at would chase you down for a bit, and you'll be bound to crash into many a passerby, [[RuleOfCool as well as to perform some insane stunts over buildings, rock formations, and who knows what else]]. The game was controlled by a steering wheel and a cool boat throttle with a boost button to increase the speed.

It has both the standard arcade port and set of console ports for the {{Nintendo 64}}, PlayStation, SegaDreamcast, and in the ''Midway Arcade Treasures 3'' CompilationRerelease, in which the consoles were probably far better a chance to get to race on the bonus tracks, since [[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard most races are challenging to complete]]. One of the few games to actually not suffer from PortingDisaster in console format, although the boat throttle obviously didn't make the translation.

* OhCrap[=/=]ThisIsGoingToSuck: If you manage to hit the helicopter in Lake Powell, you'll sometimes hear "This is gonna hurt..." right before a speeding hulk of metal slams into the chopper.
