Ill be honest, I didnt expect much from this ride. There were mixed reviews and the hype died out almost immediatly after the ride opened. I figured that it was a letdown. However, I was at Universal Studios anyways, so why not give it a try? This ride was crazy. I can only describe it as a nice dark ride followed by Space Mountain on steroids. The dark ride section was fun, however I have one complaint about this part. The warrior mummys dont move! WTF? How am I supposed to be scared of warrior mummys that have NO movement? Anyone who has been on Dinosar at Animal Kingdom knows that you can make an intense ride experience using animatronics. If the warrior mummys had been making threatining motions, the dak ride section would have been a lot scarier. The Imhotept animatronics were very nicely done, and the scarab beetle scene was awsome. The coaster section was much more intense than I expected. The airtime was great. There were multiple points in the ride where you get CRAZY amounts of air. There are also tons of positive G turns. The special effects during the coaster section are wild and made the coaster even more intense. My one complaint about this section was the station "fake out". It wasnt very believable. I havent ridden too many rides that have their station in almost complete darkness with a ride op hidden behind a conveniantly mysterious screen. Nobody on any of my rides believed that the ride was really over. On a more positive note, the dive into the red smoke/mist/fog coming out of the station/fire scene was crazy. The red mist effect was one of the best parts of the ride. Dispite the lack of enthusiasm many people have for this ride, go to US to ride it, you wont regret it.
