    Those were impressive back in the day. Still dont mind them much. Turntable room and the state of the animatronics are my biggest quality concerns about the ride.

    Id love to see an update with kinetic-surface 3D projection mapping added to the spaghetti bowl.

    I feel like they've always been intentional, for the bug room anyway...The rest have been rather smooth for me

    ^ I believe that is a backup for when the animatronic is down/not working.

    What is that? I don't even know what I'm looking at. Is it just a static head?

    I believe it is the closed sarcophagus with a projection on the face.

    I have a theory that the Imhotep AA is on vacation and left his projected brother in charge, lol.

    Also, the fake unload area is in such a bad state right now.

    The Imhotep AA was "working" on Sunday when I rode it. Must have gone down late on Saturday at some point.

    We rode this on five separate occasions during our vacation. All the fire was working, Imhotep was fine, and the attraction seemed to be in pretty good running shape as far as I could notice.

    We noticed on the last day of our trip that the ceiling fire was only partially working.

    It was a pleasure getting to meet you and Alene as well, my wife and I chatted about how nice of an evening it was. I really hope we have some overlapping trips in the future!

    How about update this attraction into the Tom cruise mummy despite it dissapointing at the box office they can least keep it updated. Or would you rather have a totally new attraction replace this down the line in another decade?

    Honestly, I think it's one of those rides (like Splash Mountain, MAYBE Flight of Passage) based off a not-well-remembered IP that can stand the test of time as a stand alone attraction.

    I'd assume, Mummy when it eventually goes down..would be replaced (with a chance that it's gutted, due to structural elements from Kongfrontation still in the building).

    I wonder what could replace the mummy? Not too sure what could host an attraction in this huge building I know it’s not coming but Godzilla would make a great candidate! Heck they can create a huge Godzilla AA just like the size of Kong from Kongfrontation. The attraction would be immersive not sure what else could go here. Think a Star Trek attraction would work.

    I think it definitely has a significant enough cult following to keep going for awhile. To be honest, I had never seen any of The Mummy movies until after my last trip earlier this month (I've seen them now). But I've had three trips to the parks in the last 365 days where I hadn't seen the movies and The Mummy was my favorite ride in both parks (and I'm saying that as a person who initially started going to Universal because of Potter).

    I think it could use a significant refurb with AA updates, maybe update the story in the queue, but all in all I think it's good enough to stick around awhile. It's fun!
