Imhotep will be going back into his tomb for a lengthy stay following today.
Universal Orlando Resort announced a while back that Revenge of the Mummy, the popular dark coaster at Universal Studios Florida, would be closed for a lengthy refurbishment this year.
The attraction opened in May of 2004 and has since reached the milestone of providing more than 100 million rides.
However, if you want to ride the coaster one more time before it closes for a while, today is the last day to do so. Revenge of the Mummy will close beginning tomorrow and is not scheduled to reopen until late summer 2022.
Plunge High Speed into Total Darkness.
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?
There has been no confirmation from Universal Orlando Resort on what changes will be coming to the ride, but there was a report last month that some “significant changes” might be made, including changing one iconic scene that may upset many diehard fans. At this point, an entire re-theme does not seem likely but we will all have to wait and see what Universal Orlando has up their sleeves when the ride reopens several months from now.
In addition to the Mummy’s temporary closure, Shrek 4-D will be closing permanently this weekend.
If you’re visiting Universal Studios Florida after Revenge of the Mummy’s closure and now wondering what there is left to do, the good news is that there are many more attractions that will be open in the Park.
This includes Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem, Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit!, Transformers 4D: The Ride, Race through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon, Fast and the Furious: Super Charged, Woody Woodpecker’s KidZone, Woody Woodpecker Nuthouse Coaster, E.T. Adventure Ride, The Simpson’s Ride, Kang & Kudos Twirl ‘n’ Hurl, Men In Black: Alien Attack, Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts in Diagon Alley, and Hogwarts Express, as well as three exciting shows that are fun for the whole family to experience.
Will you get over to Revenge of the Mummy at Universal Studios Florida before it closes today?
