Revenge of the Mummy has been a staple at Universal Orlando Resort since it opened in 2004.

The attraction celebrated providing more than 100 million rides earlier this year, but there have been major rumors circulating about the dark coaster at Universal Studios Florida since it closed for a lengthy refurbishment in January.

Revenge of the Mummy isn’t set to reopen until late summer 2022 and, in addition, Sahara Traders– the Revenge of the Mummy gift shop– has temporarily been changed to a Universal Classic Monsters Tribute Store until the attraction reopens this summer.

There have been many rumors circulating about the changes coming to the dark coaster and many Guests fear that the entire IP could change when the ride reopens.

Universal Orlando Resort recently sent out a Tweet that has fans speculating on if it could be a subtle message about the future of Revenge of the Mummy.

You don’t need coffee when you have coasters, just sayin’. 

Of course, if you’ve ever ridden Revenge of the Mummy, you know that at the very end of the ride, Brendan Fraser can be seen conducting an interview. He gives the iconic line: “Hey welcome back, I hope you enjoyed the ride. I would’ve enjoyed this interview a bit better had I GOTTEN MY CUP OF COFFEE.” Of course, Imhotep obliges and Fraser screams as the television goes black.

There have been rumors that this iconic scene and the entire theming of the line queue could be gone when Revenge of the Mummy– if that even remains its name– opens this summer. Could this tweet from Universal be yet another hint?

Universal Orlando Resort describes the attraction as: 

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?
