This was a no-brainer for me. I do enjoy Revenge, but, and I hope this is the last time I have to repeat this, I can't get over some of the cheesy effects.
The Imhotep animatronic is great. The fire ceiling is great. The fake ending is great. And yet, with all those amazing effects, they ruin the illusion with mummy cutouts, strobe lights, and glow paint. The stationary attacking guards are also lame. To me, those elements are as bad as a dancing Yeti.
The Haunted Mansion has its cheese, too (those screaming pop-up ghosts are irritating), but I find it much more enjoyable overall.
I agree with Wes that the lockers are a nuisance. Are they really necessary on Mummy? Rip Ride Rockit, sure, but Mummy? I also can't forgive the loading system. On separate visits, I have witnessed entire groups in the singles line being loaded into empty rows of the carts. That's unacceptable after waiting in the standby line for over an hour.
