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.

Universal Orlando reportedly began hiring Team Members for the attraction a few months 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. Obviously, this did not happen as July 4th came and went with no word on the attraction.

However, a recent video captured by @unleashthecurse on Twitter showed that the attraction appears to be nearing its reopening. You can check it out below:

Revenge of the Mummy now has additional barricades set up, the locker room has some more lights on inside, and there are some characters meeting outside the entrance for the first time in a while…

As you can see, there are now barricades set outside the ride’s entrance as well as characters walking around, something that has been missing for a while. There are also some lights on in the locker room area. Now, none of this is solid confirmation of a reopening date, but it does make us hopeful that we could see the ride reopen 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?

Universal Orlando Resort is home to many thrilling and epic attractions that you won’t want to miss. You can experience Hogsmeade, which includes Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey, Hagrid’s Magical Creature Motorbike Adventure, and The Flight of the Hippogriff, as well as Jurassic Park River Adventure, the all-new Jurassic World: Velocicoaster, Skull Island: Reign of Kong, The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man, The Incredible Hulk Coaster and much more at Universal’s Islands of Adventure.
