On rcdb.com they said that Intamin made the track. Where did they get that info?

Well, RCDB isn't always correct... they are guessing just like most of us... but It does appear as though the track is Premier made.

I don't really care who makes it. Universal is getting a new coaster so it's all good as far as I'm concerned! But I wonder if this will use the lap bars instead of OTSR? (Such as the ones found on Flight of Fear, etc.)

If it's Premier, I doubt they will be doing any more OTSRs. At least I hope! :)

The issue of retraints is an interesting one. It would seem like Premier is moving away from OTSRs, but might Universal specifically request to have them? I mean, it's ultimately the park's decision on how it wants to approach the issue. I guess only time will tell.

Ah, but if Premier has declared that the OTSR trains are no longer in their offerings at all, then would Universal even be ABLE to order them?

Probably not.

But who's to say Universal couldn't perform their own modifications after the trains are delivered? It's been done by different parks before.

I'm not trying to argue that they should or would do that...just playing devil's advocate.

Point well taken. I'd bet against OTSRs, but anything is possible. This ride may very well be different than any one of us imagine. I think it will be unique.

I would guess... if Premiere did not offer otsr's and Universal wanted them, then Premiere more and likely wouldn't have been awarded a contract.

Has it been determined if the ride will invert passangers?

You guys honestly think it'll be a custom design? Im thinking they'll just throw in a LIM bowl, but I guess they could go with something custom.

Judging by the patent designs found last year (originally thought to be themed to Apollo 13) I would think it is custom, especially since it's to go into an existing building.

If you take into account the rumors of some kind of "spinning" motion, then yes, I would say a custom design.

Plus, USF already has a launched looping coaster (Hulk), why would they add another one?

Was that a typo Peabody? Putting the ride in an existing building would probably require a custom design to fit the building.

I certainly hope that Universal won't make the mistake of using OTSRs. The removal of OTSRs on other Premiers has dramaticly improved their popularity.

Yep, typo. Sorry :) (fixed)

Agreed about the popularity thing. I would ride a Premier coaster maybe once a season and call it quits. Last summer I couldn't get enough rides on Mr. Freeze, Joker's Jinx, etc.

Amen to that, Peabody. I used to avoid Flight of Fear at PKI like the plague; now it's one of my favorite rides in the park. All thanks to one little modification!

I'm curious to see what the Mummy coaster will be like. If it will have inversions, I think it will be launched, provided the whole ride will be housed in the Kong building. I forget the exact size of the building, but I don't think there's enough room for a lift of any substantial size (someone correct me if I'm wrong). Having said that, I don't think it will be a standard spaghetti bowl, either -- not with one so similar (Rock 'n Roller Coaster) right down the road.

Whatever it ends up being, I just hope that it's highly themed and has lap bars only. If it does, I'm sure it will be a good ride!

Maybe it will be an indoor spinnning mouse ala Kennywood to compete with the one at Animal Kingdom?

-Just throwing another thought into the mess, ;)

Always a possibility, but somehow I don't see them gutting Kong for a mouse coaster. Just my opinion.

Forbidden Mountain and the Mummy coaster will be big competators.
