    I'm surprised USF's doesn't. I just rode Hollywood's Mummy a month or two ago and really liked the ankle ticklers during that scene. It added way more to the scene than I thought it would. Is there a reason why USF's doesn't have it or was it just overlooked or something?

    Backwards drop? I can do it. Fast launch? Sure. Angry mummy? Fine.

    Ankle ticklers? Now that's where I draw the line. there's only so much thrill I can take.


    I do think a little TLC - fresh paint/effects, maybe a refurbished/replaced track when time comes - would extend this guy's life.

    Hollywood's incarnation was not as well-received as Orlando's, leading park management to implement a number of kneejerk changes in the first few years of operation. This included slowing the speed of the vehicles in the dark ride component (to lengthen ride time, as many complained it was too short) and adding ankle ticklers to the Scarab scene.

    I think a slight upgrade to the mummy would do well if they happen to reboot the mummy once more but they do it the right way this time.

    If Blumhouse ends up doing their take on the Mummy, we might get a full blown upgrade versus Tom Cruise's face plastered in the gift shop.

    LOL so being totally honest here, I had no clue that was an actual thing in Hollywood.

    Ankle ticklers AND rice? A local haunted attraction near me has a bug hallway and rice is dropped on you, and it REALLY adds to the effect.

    All I know is every time they do the fishing wire at HHN, I am flailing and significantly more distressed than when people are popping out at me.

    I'm surprised they've never bothered to plus this attraction any. Some projection mapping effects would easily do the trick.

    Biggest pet peeve I have. The ride is good enough as it is, but it can be so much better.

    They have added some light effects in the transition scene between Imhoteps first appearance and the treasure room...Other than that, it's pretty much the same haha

    Considering how far mapping tech has come, you'd think the ride would have been upgraded by now

    Looks like they upgraded some of the projectors on the ride. Scarab room and turntable projectors looked much clearer and brighter than before (although the right screen in the scarab room was tilted a bit). There was also a new light effect in the fake station that looked new.

    Often times a bulb(s) replacement makes things look like new

    I wonder how much Universal spends on projector bulbs every year haha

    Is it still pitch dark in the turntable room though?

    I personally would like to see the mummy updated to Tom Cruise’s version.

    Rode it multiple times last week. The effects were as good as can be expected.This is definitely one of the best attractions in Orlando,14 years later. ...It's amazing that a Universal Creative that built this great ride, could do a dud like F&F.

    For the most part, the big players that were around in the creation of Mummy aren’t around at all anymore. Can’t even really compare the creative teams.
