A new interactive experience, in 2009 only!
Inspired by the successful blockbuster film with the same name, The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, live! is an approximately three hundred square meter walk-through in which visitors will encounter many characters in a novel and extraordinary atmosphere full of surprises, thrills and mystery. La Ronde will become the second theme park in the world to host this attraction.
The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, live! will be open to La Ronde visitors for a limited time—June 19 to September 7, 2009, only—before it heads for another theme park on its world tour. La Ronde recently reached an agreement to that effect with New York based Sudden Impact Entertainment Company (SIEC), a producer that works very closely with Universal Studios.
The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, live! was inaugurated a few weeks ago in Australia. It can accommodate between 500 and 700 people an hour. Sudden Impact!'s Chairman & CEO, Lynton V. Harris, who is described as the "Scare Master," created the experience. He has transformed the haunted house concept to produce spectacular interactive experiences and attractions, including The Mummy live! and The Mummy Returns live! have toured all over the world.
In the film The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, the third instalment of the popular series, the action takes place in Asia. Brendan Fraser's character, Rick O'Connell, wins the battle with Emperor Han, this time with the help of Rick's son, Alex. An irony of fate is that the film was partially shot in Montréal.
"The fact that La Ronde recently reached an agreement with SIEC and indirectly with Universal confirms that the park has become one of international calibre over the last few years," its president, Marc Tremblay, points out. "The groundbreaking interactive experience of The Mummy is a huge addition to the increasingly amazing and diverse range of entertainment we provide," he adds.

The Mummy: Tomb of Dragon Emperor
so what do you think
Hope it's better than the movie.
Did they really have to add "live!" to the end of the name?
The movie sucked. Big time. More than the others combined.
The trailer was a big enough indicator for me that it was a steaming pile of crap. That and the first one was average at best, and certainly didn't warrant a sequel, let alone two. I can't even remember if I saw the second one...I don't think I did.
