Hey, what is the acceleration of the ride at universal studios Hollywood, at the start when the carrige is catapulted forwards?

...but not too fast ;)
Seriously, I have no idea, and come to think of it, I've never seen it mentioned anywhere either.

LIMs, I believe. Great ride, too!

Hmm, I have no clue. RCDB says it goes up to 40 mph.
I have been on the one in Cali but not Florida (yet) but I hear they are both very different.
VERY cool ride. I loved it in Hollywood!

I've only been on the one in Florida. A short ride but both the darkride and coaster portions are very effective. Usually "hybrids" are good at one or the other, not both. One of these days I'll make it back so SoCal to ride the Hollywood version!

I was talking to some non-coaster friends about the Grand Opening of the FL ride, which really is quite an impressive COASTER as well as a *very* effective dark ride. When a media member asked me what I thought, I told them that RnRC was the Disney-fied version, and I still think so...the special effects of Mummy are technologically superior, and although I don't think that necessarily it a better dark ride (I love the gags of say, Knoebels Haunted Mansion), I do think it makes the dark ride elements more effective when SPEEDING by...
CA's version, while not QUITE the ride, or the dark ride, of the FL version (and wow do the SoCal peeps *dismiss* their RotM) DOES have that awesome shuttle-coaster backwards travel, something *my* Mummy doesn't have....
edit: ...and MY Mummy has mild-but-effective *ejector* airtime... ;)
