    When I was there about 2 weeks ago not all of the treasure room mummies popped up and the window in the fake unload was broken and stuck in the smashed position. At least the treasure room full fireball was on!

    Mummy needs a full redo...But I imagine it is going to get much much worse first

    I would love for them to overhaul it, but with it being one of the few practical rides and a popular attraction, I think they'll wait until EU is open.

    Gotcha, so that is a mechanical issue probably

    Sometimes they come up early when you hit the cue early

    A new Dining Reservations kiosk was dropped in next to the Today Cafe and the Photo Store. All pre-fab... basically the equivalent of a Food & Wine booth.

    Yesterday all mummies came up in the treasure room, but the window was still stuck in broken mode. Everything else seemed to work (except the physical “beetles / rocks” coming out of the opening, but I haven’t seen those work in years).

    Wait, what physical "beetles/rocks"? I didn't realize that was supposed to be a thing.

    yah “beetles” are supposed to come sliding down the opening in that scene. I can’t remember the last time I saw that effect working.

    Replying to myself. I guess I was not as perceptive as I thought, since when I went on again this morning (and with the thread fresh in mind) only 2 of 3 mummies on each side went up.

    Yeh, the one on the left had a toilet break and the other one has jury duty.
    That or they finally installed the wimp cam. It scans the guests and how big the wimp score is influences the amount of mummy's that are staged. With that big of a ride vehicle it's not perfect. ;)

    I saw it for the first time last night. Ok that note. The new setup is great. Before it was crazy with taxis and busses in the same spot.
