Between the Mummy and Everest which one is wilder?By wilder I mean feeling stronger physical sensations.
From Daniel EtcheberryI have ridden the Mummy, and I enjoyed it. But I don't want anything stronger than the Mummy.

From Derek Morsehmmmmm....I'd say Everest is a bit wilder than Mummy, but that is just my opinion. I love them both.

From Tony DudaEverest is a good roller coaster with a nice theme. Mummy is a lot jerkier in it's movements with more intense visuals. I would say Mummy is "wilder" considering the flames and such.

From Nick MarkhamMummy launches, but I when I first rode through that double helix inside Everest, I'd have sworn I had gone through a couple inversions.

Mummy is also intense first off the launch I feel, but I'm gonna give it to Everest.
From Nick DakuginowIn my opinion, their equally "wild".

You've ridden Revenge of the Mummy already and have experienced the launch upwards, the slight drops, and nice speed of the roller coaster.
On Expedition Everest...
1. It's a longer coaster.

If you say so.
But what do your "facts" have to do with Daniel's question regarding Mummy vs. Everest?
And what's "seaward?" A hospital section in the ocean?
From Chris HallGiven your definition of what you mean by "wilder" (i.e. "By wilder I mean feeling stronger physical sensations.") I'd have to say the "wilder" of the two is Expedition Everest. The g-forces through the backwards portion and the helix is a lot stonger than any part of The Mummy IMO. But, that being said, you would really miss out on a great roller coaster by skipping Everest! No upside down at all, and it only lasts a few minutes.

From Daniel EtcheberryI suppose Rock N' Roller Coaster is even more intense than Everest and The Mummy because of the loops. Am I right?

From Dan GraceThe Mummy hands down. I think they speed it up during HHN

From Chris HallDaniel: It may sound strange, but I think Rock N' Roller Coaster is smoother and less intense than Everest. Well, maybe they are about the same. Yes, Rock N' Roller Coaster does loops and twists but they are so smooth that the sensation is not as intense to me. I'm probably in the minority but I can ride Rock N' Roller Coaster back to back as many times as I want ... but if I ride Everest twice back to back I feel dizzy. If given the choice between Everest and Rock N' Roller Coaster I'd choose Rock N' Roller Coaster any day!

From Adam NodjomianIn order of intensity from least to great:
Posted June 21, 2011 at 6:09 AM
1. Mummy: Goes backwards for a few feet, has a semi-fast launch (that I didn't even notice on my first ride), and goes through a section of darkness. Only one steep drop.
2. Expedition Everest: Goes backwards in the dark for awhile with big drops. Much higher so if you're afraid of heights it's worse. There is a big drop with a big helix at the end.
3. Rock 'n' Rollercoaster: Very fast launch, a few loops and corkscrews, and loud music (by the way, this ride is only fun with the music). No big drops.
From Daniel EtcheberryThanks everyone for the info.

From Mike SperdutoThe difference between The Mummy and Everest is the Mummys animatronic actually works lol.
Posted June 21, 2011 at 11:07 AM
From Mike SperdutoSeriously though I think both coaster are decent coasters, not the fastest or most intense but just good rides that the whole family can ride and that's what Disney and Universal set on doing with these two rides.
Posted June 21, 2011 at 11:12 AM
From Michael OwenI think they are both very different. Mummy has a fairly intense launch, but Everest is a lot bigger, meaning if heights is an issue then Everest would be seen as more intense.
Posted June 21, 2011 at 11:18 AM
The thing about Disney is, even on their larger thrill rides such as Everest, they try to allow as broad an audience as possible on it, so it's not nearly as intense as, for example Kraken, Incredible Hulk and Rip, Ride and RockIt.
From Donna McKayDid they change Mummy? I rode it not long after it opened and it seemed much wilder then than it does now. I thought the backward section was longer back then. Am I mistaken?
Posted June 22, 2011 at 12:05 PM
From Dan SI am going to say that the WILDER of the two is Everest, because of the steeper drops, the longer backwards with the g-force. But i think that the real question is, which one is better? Because having a wilder ride doesn't make one better, and these two rides are great to compare because they are both similar.
Posted June 22, 2011 at 12:41 PM
From Valerie FEverest, for sure. Both are extremely fun rides but Everest has this part where you go backwards REALLY fast... it's intense!
Posted June 24, 2011 at 5:32 PM
From chris lincolnThe mummy hands down! It was incredible! I found everest disapointing.
Posted June 24, 2011 at 5:54 PM
From Laura WillisI have to say The Mummy. It's dark and fast and just crazy insane fun! I love me some EE but Mummy is the better thrill ride.
