 Review of Revenge of the Mummy @ Universal Studios Florida
0 Rating Posted by: Animan1 on 4/2/2005 8:18:00 AM
To cut to the chase, Revenge of the Mummy was a very good ride that seemed to get better every time I rode it. However, although I see a lot of 10s for this ride, I did not think it was quite that good. It is certainly a all-encompassing sensory masterpiece though, and the most thrilling ride at Universal Studios.

The theming of the building itself is very good. I have not seen the sequel to The Mummy, but I did see the original, and thought it was fairly good. Truth be told, I think I prefered the ride to the movie!

The ride ops, like all of them at Universal Orlando, were great. The slow movement through the darkness at the beginning of the ride was very good, as was the scarab beetle and reversing of the train effect. The main launch hill was great, bursting through the mist, darkness, and intense turns that make up the middle part of the ride. After the fake ending, the curving drop is excellent; however, almost immediately after this, the ride ended. I would have liked to have another coaster portion as long as the first, but the ride is still plenty long, and no ride is perfect in every way. Definitely a must-ride, its a great technological ride, and another great addition to Universals lineup.

Yes, but theres not a lot of actual "riding" during that time.

Yeah, but if youre like me and you ride it 10 times in a row, you get pretty satisfied with it

Oh, it was definitely a satisfying experience, and it got better every time I rode it. At first, it seemed pretty short, but now that I look back on it, it really was pretty long. Also, most rides seem longer when you havent had to wait as long to ride them, as was the case when my family rode as single riders as opposed to the standard line.

Very true. The standard line is quite an experience though, and I hope you went through it at least once.

Yep, and if youd have read my TR, youd know that. Yes, I went through the regular queue twice, and it was very nicely done. Still, thats no surprise when youre at Universal...

If theres ever been a ride that feels nowhere near 4 minutes long, if thats accurate, its surely this one.

Its not four minutes. Its 2.5 I think. Maybe not even that.
