Hey...does anyone know anything about the Mummy?
I have a trip to Florida planned for the first week of May. Do you think it'll be open??
Does anyone know when its going to open??
Anyone know layout or anything like that?? (loops, launched, etc?)

No loops. Launches (more than one, but not fast). Backwards sometimes. Special effects unlike anything ever seen. Surprise ending.
I don't know for sure, but I think it has been running for employee previews. If true, that could mean that it will be open by May.
They designed it to be better than Spiderman. I doubt anything can be better than Spiderman.
I'm not sure, but I think that my info is correct. *** Edited 2/24/2004 6:34:41 AM UTC by dexter***

If there'd been employee previews of the attraction, it seems like there's little chance that we'd have not heard anything about it yet.

Maybe The previews are going to start soon. I wasn't paying attention when I heard that; I can't even remember where I read it. Maybe Screamscape...Ummm-If I read it on Screamscape, there is a chance that it isn't true at all (lol).
I wish I was still in contact with my ex-roomates/co-workers from Orlando, they would know. A few years ago they told me King Kong was going to close so that they could build a new coaster themed to The Mummy. This was way before the news was made public and of course I didn't believe them...

I'm going to FL next week for 2 weeks. Any luck they might do a soft opening?

Don't hold your breath. I can't even begin to fathom how challenging the programming of this ride must be, plus the conveyance system is from Premiere... not known for their rock solid prototypes. I'd say we'll be lucky if it even opens on time.

Employee rides haven't started yet, this girl in my speech class got to walk through the building (she works there) and said that they start in a couple of weeks
Tuesday, February 24, 2004 3:44 PM
I'm going May 6-10...
Any chance that it'll be open by then?

Magic 8-ball sez: "Not clear...ask again."

Okay. I'm going sometime in May, hopefully after it opens. Will it be open when I go?
Joe, in a weird mood today!

Yes it may or may not be open when you go, or if you don't go. ;)

Having followed the progress *pretty closely*...;)....the earliest I would EXPECT that Mummy will be open is May 1.
I have talked with a few employees who have done the walk-thru, and, inverting or not, I think we'll be thrown for a loop....BORG Assimilator is gonna be "themed", huh....;)
"Based on the popular “Mummy” films, the two rides, one each at Universal Orlando and Universal Studios Hollywood, are scheduled to open in the spring and summer of 2004, respectively."

I got that from Premiers site.....but whcich is which? Is one opening in spring, the other in summer....?
It'll be a surprise....
Please be open by May 10!!

Orlando - Spring; Hollywood - Summer.

"Respectively" would mean "in the same order as previously mentioned."
Thursday, February 26, 2004 6:18 PM
Or he might have been saying that they would open with respect. ;)
Hey, y'all need to stop talking about my mummy! Them's fightin' words.

Yeah, I hear your mummy is so fast...
