    Because people kept questioning me on it, so I answer.

    Edit: the search tool is a great thing. Total posts where I specifically ask this question? 6.

    What happened to the other 30 I wonder...

    Does anyone know for sure how fast the launches are going to be? I mean, in terms of mummy compared to something like hulk I guess. I would assume they're fairly light, so you can move your head around to look at the details without whiplash or anything like that.

    To take the convos to a lighter note, we now have meat bagged dummies in the side car!

    At least one of the launches will be faster than Revenge of the Mummy, which tops out at 40 mph. This one will have at least one launch that brings us to 50 mph.

    But The Mummy seems more intense than it is due to being inside and close proximity to props. For comparison, Slinky Dog Dash and The Mummy have the same top speed. And Hagrid's top speed will be 10 mph more.

    That's GREAT news. Wasn't expecting people to be riding in April.

    Sooo in all theoreticals (as I am a bit of an idiot), wouldn't that mean the chance of softs sooner (granted, when things are at the final stages) are growing?

    Yes. Late May softs seem like a lock to me now. As long as AAs and effects work, and queue elements are finished.

    Hell no! We have no idea what the status of many parts of the ride are, including indoor queue, outdoor queue, drop building, and additional work they have to do outside.

    Seeing how short the back rests are on the side cars, there must be a pretty restrictive acceleration limit for the launches. Seems like the launches will be hardly noticeable, similar to Slinky

    In short, yes, I think the figure will look great during the day and night. No, I don't think it's weird for it not to have hair (see Hippogriff). Overall, I'm not worried about the instalation as it will go a long way into ensuring that the AA stays 'show ready' even under the harsh Florida weather conditions. I believe hair would not meet the demands of the beating the figure will take during Florida summer and maybe even a hurricane. Figures like Kong, Goblins, and maybe Hagrid can have hair because they are inside for the totallity of their service life

    Not sure you'd want to at this point, I feel not all the effects and things are going

    I get that. I never said it should have hair in the first place as I know the restrictions.

    I do wonder how the Wicked Witch at SDMT gets away with it though. Is that little roof really all it takes or is it that she only has a few strands?

    Her hair does get crappy and I'm sure it gets replaced often...Fluffy seems to be way bigger of an AA

    Two will go in, but only one will come out victorious.

    Well, I was planning on softs being just a week before, if that. Now I am thinking maybe up to two weeks early; last week of May... So, not that different, but now I'm a little more optimistic.
