Universal Studios offers Guests so many well-themed and exciting experiences, ranging from intense thrill rides at Hogwarts Castle to relaxing adventures through Whoville in Seuss Landing. One of the most thrilling and scary rides at Universal has to be Revenge of The Mummy: The Ride, which is themed after The Mummy (1999) film series starring Brendan Fraser. This ride isn’t so thrilling when it breaks down, however, and as shown in a recent TikTok, the evacuation can be just as scary as the ride itself.

More on Revenge of The Mummy – The Ride:

Plunge High Speed Into Total Darkness

If you dare, face heart-pounding special effects and unexpected twists at every turn as you escape the Mummy’s revenge in life-like horror. It WILL change you … forever!

The ride catapults guests at speeds up to 45 mph in virtual darkness.

Many of the Egyptian hieroglyphics on the walls spell out real words and ancient warnings.

Digging your nails into the safety rail, you’ll hold on tight as you rush forwards and back on the track, fleeing from the evil Mummy Imhotep. Just as it seems you might’ve escaped, you’ll plunge straight down into a pitch-black abyss with no end in sight. Will you ever see daylight again? Or will you remain sealed inside this tomb forever?

Guests have so much to look forward to at Universal Parks, especially with the upcoming Epic Universe opening in the near future at Universal Studios Orlando.
