You're on the set of a Brendan Fraser Mummy movie, where some crew members believe the script's "Curse of the Mummy" is all too real. Many of them wear the symbol of the Med-Jai, warriors who protect "the Creature'" from being found and raised from the dead. After getting this backstory in the queue, you're on to the ride, a roller coaster through what's supposedly a movie set of an ancient Egyptian tomb.

Once on board, you learn that all these mummies aren't just props -- they're other tourists who have been captured and mummified in this very real Mummy's lair. As you turn a corner, a partially wrapped crew member warns you to get out, but it's too late. The Mummy Imhotep appears and makes us an offer we can't refuse: Join him and receive vast riches, or refuse and face doom. Guess which one we're going to get? Hint: not the money. From there, you launch into a high-speed roller coaster ride through the tomb on the way to your escape. And just when you think that the ride is finally over... it isn't.

The best roller coaster in Universal Orlando and proabably in Orlando, period. The theming, the humor in the queue, and the thrill level is unbeatable. It's also my favorite ride at USF, that's why I gave REVENGE OF THE MUMMY a 10/10, perfect score. I could ride this forever.

This is my girlfriend's favorite ride at Universal and it's really growing on me. I think we rode it 5 times in 4 days when we were in Orlando last month. It's such a great indoor roller coaster and so much fun. It far surpasses any roller coaster at Disney as well. I still think that I enjoy Dragon Challenge and Rip Rockit more, but for an indoor ride this one is great!

Far surpasses the USH version.
Jonathan Katz
A unique coaster experience with all the thrills you could want short of inversions. Don't miss it. 9/10
Jade Benefield
A fantastic ride that does not get enough love when talking about the great rides at Universal! One of my favorite all-time rides.
Christopher Sturniolo
While not the most exciting ride coaster-wise, Universal really upped their ante to make this ride as immersive and scary as possible.
Quentin Scruggs
The Mummy is one of the only rides left at the resort that uses predominately physical effects as opposed to rides like Spiderman and Transformers, and boy does it set the standard. While the coaster itself is fairly tame, it's the complete darkness and physical effects that deliver the thrills. My only gripes are that it is not longer, it's kind of difficult to figure out the story, and the Mummy franchise has gone dormant. Luckily, Universal (the studio) announced a reboot, so hopefully that will keep the ride around for a long time.
