Editorial Review: Revenge of the Mummy®


"The ride, Revenge of the Mummy, is not for those who are faint of heart" - Taking their theme from the 1999 and 2001 summer blockbuster The Mummy and The Mummy Returns, this ride combines a dark ride and a roller coaster with launches, twisting, and effects to overwhelm the five senses. This roller coaster of madness is sure to stand your hair on end. Easy to find, Revenge of the Mummy is on your right hand side if you initially start off at the entrance and continue down the main road until you see a sign for its entrance. Once you hop in line, the anxiety can be overwhelming.

 

Take the time to look at your surroundings as you wait in line. There is plenty of interesting artifacts and movie set pieces scattered through the queue. Other rooms have interactive pieces such as a touch sensitive treasure chest that flicker the lights on and off or a booby trapped jewel that will spook you with a blast of air as you reach for it. After climbing a short set of stairs at the end, you’ll arrive at the entrance to your cart.

What makes this ride so great is that throughout the ride, which is a roller coaster that is indoors, the car actually bends with the track. So instead of it being just one solid piece moving on the path, hinges allow each row of passengers to feel the ride in the same way; so in reality, the front is no different or better than the middle or back row (other than the view of the darkness). You’ll start the ride by taking a few twists and turns through the black abyss. About halfway through you will think your done as you pull up to a station only to find the cursed mummy sends you through another series of crazy twists and turns. You’ll end with a message from the star of the film The Mummy, Brendan Frasier.

Even though this ride hasn’t been open as long as many others, it is already one of the most popular rides in the entire park. An absolute must, Revenge of the Mummy® should end up stuck in your head after riding it. This attraction is easily one of the most remarkable rides in Universal Studios Florida®.

Guest Testimonial

As I approached the queue, I had no idea what I was in for! Suddenly I found myself inside of Imhotep's tomb, a fully themed Egyptian tomb. It appears that the tomb had been desecrated by robbers. "I think the mummy inside is angry" stated one of the visitors. As I reached for one of the walls, a bug jumped out at me. We finally navigated our group into the tomb of curses, a imminent solar eclipse will empower the Mummy to claim souls of those who violate his tomb. We finally load into one of the cars and I could see the eclipse of the sun through a hole the ceiling. As the ride was underway, the last surviving tomb raider appeared, beckoning that we "don't go into the chamber." Well, it was too late to turn back now. Skeletal remains of the previous tomb raiders seem to be scattered all over the place as skeletons pounce out at us from every side.
Finally, we got beyond the robbers and entered the treasure room where there are scenes of the "The Mummy Returns" and "The Scorpion King." Something was about to go terribly wrong I thought as lights shifted to the decaying remains of previous tomb robbers. The next chamber was utterly horrible as a Skeleton Warrior drops from the ceiling inches from our heads. Remember, I'm on a roller coaster and I can not see the track. We begin riding up hill and down hill at high speed until suddenly we stop, but that's not the end of it, now the car starts to roll backward, something a roller coaster does not do. Finally, we come face to face with Imhotep, but before he can suck out their souls, the eclipse breaks and he explodes into a Faux Fire right in our faces!
