Last year, Universal confirmed that a fan-favorite ride at Universal Studios Florida would be undergoing a lengthy refurbishment in 2022. Revenge of the Mummy is currently closed for maintenance which began January 7, through late summer 2022. Guests have not been able to ride during this time ad while the Resort offers other great attractions like Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure and VelociCoaster, some fans have surely missed the unique experience Revenge of the Mummy offers.

Revenge of the Mummy is a dark ride coaster experience that is unlike any other. The ride is often one of the Park’s highlights when it comes to attractions, so seeing it gone for half the year is a tough pill to swallow! However, some progress has slowly been made on the attraction as shown in a tweet from Inside Universal (@insideuniversal):

As you can see, the entire courtyard has been opened again after being redone with construction walls being pushed back. No specific date has been given on when we can expect the ride to reopen but Universal has claimed it will come back to life some time this summer. After seeing these pictures, it looks like we could get it back very soon.

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?
