Mummy's Revenge?

Monday, May 2, 2005 5:58 PM
Well I was wondering how the ride is. I have heard mixed reviews. Is it thrilling? How is the themeing? Those skeleton that comeout from the sides look sooo chezy. what happened to the robotic mummy jumping on the car? Is it more of a darkride or rollercoaster. ok one more question...How does the ride reverse directions is it noticable or is it a surprise when it happens? wheee that is alot of questions!!

lol YES... that is the best answer! its about half and half

I rode USF I know that USH is different.. I will not spoil anything for you... but I loved the ride.. its great.. the reverse is a great surprise... AT USF it is short though (maybe 15-20 feet) then comes the 180 degree turn... then, **** ******!

I didn't think that the mummies we chezzy! I thought it was a cool effect!

Overall great ride!

have fun!

PS I didn't even know it was a rollercoaster until about a week before I rode! that was a great surprise!

This ride sucked......when it was over!!!

This was one of the most unexpecting rides...or should I say coaster that I have ever ridden! It was AMAZING!!! What a rush! Well, the turnaround is noticable but the part that shocks you is how you get to be backwards in the 1st place. Go ride this right away! It might take awhile to get on actually because it took 3 hours in line.

No spoilers

I thought the ride was way too short. One of the surprises needed more themeing because it looked faked and in the USH I heard has a new feature in it which I think will make the ride more complete. If you want to know what it is you can look at click on news and rumors then click on north america parks and look for ush and look for mummy. I saw an animation online before I rode it so I knew most of the surprises but now it's gone. This is just my view after knew what was going to happen. Your view may be different since you don't know whats going to happen.

Mamoosh's avatar You must be talking about the USF version of Mummy because the Hollywood version was a major disappointment with the worst. ending. ever.

don't know if its *that* short...

i find the more i ride it, the more i enjoy it.

at first, you'll swear the ride, altogether, is very very short. the darkride portion is great, themed amazingly, and the coaster portion is fantastic, espeically given the restrictions with the size/shape of the vehicle, and the existing building.

the drops are perfect with great, unexpected airtime, and its very very smooth.

rollergator's avatar I don't think the USH crowd gave that coaster a fair's short, true, but that coaster actually COASTED backwards, whereas my Mummy only "travels" backwards to re-align the train/tracks....

Personally, I thought BOTH were good rides, FL's has a better coaster ride overall though...and somewhat better theming as well....but USH has *THE tram tour* and lots of stuff that our park doesn't.

Anyone think Jaws might make a decent flume, or rapids ride? ;)

Jeff's avatar The Florida ride is my favorite coaster in Orlando at the moment. Seriously. Stephanie and I went on it a bunch of times with our hotel line cheat. Loved it.

I've only done the Hollywood version. Whild I didn't hate it as much as Mooshy, it was short and I didn't get the ending. There isn't anything to spoil on the USH version, but there is plenty in the USF version, which I hope to ride this summer.

USH's is a decent ride, with good themeing, but like I said, the ending isn't great and it is a bit short. Being launched backwards was fun, though.

I just rode this ride at the beginning of last month, and I was truly impressed with it.

It seemed to go faster than it really does, and it does A LOT more than I thought it would. It's packed with special effects, twists and turns. Feeling the track underneath you moving, and feeling the whole train move is quite unnerving, and a real nice effect. I give the ride a great review, I really enjoyed it. It wasn't huge, but it's not really supposed to be. It is kinda short, though.

Rumors such as the mummy jumping on the car played a big role in hyping the ride, and when they weren't there I can't describe to you how many people I heard ask "why didn't the mummies jump on the car?". In the end, people believng rumors cost the ride a good chunk of respect, though being the Coaster Buzz "New Steel Coaster of the Year" has to be worth something, right?

I loved it, one of my favorite rides but don't ride expecting a spectacular coaster (or mummies jumping on the car for that matter). Sure, I may have "spoiled" that for you, but it's probably a "good" spoiler if there ever was one.

It also dosn't help when they say the mummy will jump onto the car in the offical press release by Unviersal, or so I have read previously as the press release I cannot find right now....

USF version of it was fantastic. I think we spent more time reriding this than any other ride at US. We only had one day to do both parks and still rode it 5 times.

Nothing but praise for this ride. The theming is great, the surprises are neat, and the coaster portion is just out of control.

The above is my opinion and my opinion alone. If I have offended you in any way please note that this was most likely unintentional and I will not apologize for stating what I believe.

I rode it at USF about a week after it opened, so I went in knowing absolutely nothing about it, and I have to say, I was blown away. We ended up riding it 3-4 times over our two days at the park (use the single riders line--we pretty much walked on to it). It was much better the first time we rode it because I got to sit in the back. The second ride we had, I was in the front seat, and even though it's dark inside, there's enough lighting so that you can see the track ahead of you. Not being able to see what's coming next really improved the experience.

coasterqueenTRN's avatar I have only rode the Hollywood version and LOVED it more than I expected to. The "reverse" element surprised me.

Short but sweet. :-P The bug effect was pretty cool as well, once they turned the lights off. ;-)

rollergator's avatar LOL, I actually was *psyched* to get that one ride with the work lights on...some of the effects were lost because of it, but re-rides remedied that....and we got to see the inside of the building, the trackwork, etc., which not too many guests get to see.

Backwards launch + no inversions = :)

I went to Universal Studio in Florida couple yrs ago. I was ride those Mummy's coaster. It's pretty good these coaster but It's ride just 3-5 mins that's all. It's very shorty tracks.

Mamoosh's avatar Wow...I'm glad people are enjoying Hollywood's Mummy. I felt it was neither a scary dark ride nor an exciting coaster. And again: worst. ending. EVAH!

eightdotthree's avatar Whats with the ending moosh? You can spoil it for me.
Tuesday, May 3, 2005 2:57 PM
Moosh - I agree with you 100%. Nothing stood out on the Hollywood version that made me want to ride it over and over. Which is sad because it is the same concept as the Florida version and I am obsessed with that one. Both versions have pretty bad endings but Joe put it best when he said the Hollywood version's ending was like being in one of those spray-on tanning booths :).
