If you ride in the busy season, you do not have enough "free" time.
@Wes - the lockers are free of use for a long enough time to ride and return.
P.S wes doesnt know the lockers are free, LOL, what a NooB!!!
Mummys the WORD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
They let you have a locker based on the wait time of the attraction. If something were to happen and you were inside longer than the locker time, you can just talk to a locker attendant and they will usually wave the fee.
My vote went to the Mummy. I enjoy the theming and it's an all together fun ride.
Does the Florida version have the black light skeletons when you go in reverse? If it does, that's horrible. At least it has the false unloading area and a better ending than the Hollywood one.
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.
The Haunted Mansion just blows my mind everytime with its effects. The pacing, the detail and the execution are flawless. PLus, the lines for HM are always shorter not because it is less popular, but because it is way more efficient ride. Universal puts efficiency second to cost and style.
This year, Mummy already looks like the bad cheesey, the bad tacky versus its wow power last year. HM will always be breathtaking, graceful and elegant.
I also very much do not like the Mummy! Expensive Dark Ride that looks cheap. Mansion uses cheap material and makes it count! I like Raoul's anylasis. I would rather keep Mansion over!
Mummy has more innovation over Haunted Mansion? They invented the omnimover for the attraction (actually adventures in inner space, but you get my point!). They couldn't even change floors on the USO Mummy because of the King Kong attraction there before. The HM has a room thats really an elevator!
HM has great at the moment you see it in the distance. The line is creepy, not tacky, and the ride is smooth and flawless with effects that will never look old. There are too many things to see that it keeps us riding over and over. The ride moves people through quickly without losing a beat, staying elegant, graceful and a force to be reckoned with.
Mansion will always be a classic, the Mummy already has lost its steam.
As for Mummy, it's a must ride any time I go to Universal, and it deserved to go far in this tournament.
Mummy's a much greater thrill than the world-weary, popping chicken old mansion.
Of course neither is as good as the Jungle Cruise.
You Disney fans better show up to support this attraction in later rounds and not abandon ship when some other, lesser coaster comes along to spoil the fun!
Still, I wonder why there is the bit of blowout. I seem to have noticed that with most every contest brought up!
