Universal Orlando Resort broke the collective heart of Classic Monsters fans everywhere last week when it announced that the beloved Universal Classic Monsters Cafe would be permanently closing after more than 20 years of service at Universal Studios Florida.

However, there might be one Universal Monsters offering set to return sooner rather than later. Revenge of the Mummy at Universal Studios Florida has been closed since January undergoing an extended closure. The attraction isn’t set to open until “late summer 2022,” according to Universal Orlando.

But, there might be good news yet.

Twitter account @unleashthecurse just shared a major update pertaining to the ride.

i was just in the mummy gift shop and i literally heard the sounds of the premier restraints coming down from the station. pretty sure they are testing it 🙂

The user said they could hear the premier restraints coming down– a sound that is absolutely recognizable to those who have been on the attraction several times– meaning that test running could already be happening.

Universal Orlando reportedly began hiring Team Members for the attraction just a few weeks ago and there have been rumors that the attraction could open to the public by the July 4th weekend, which would be far ahead of schedule compared to the expected August or early September date. 

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?
