First opened in 2004, Revenge of the Mummy: The Ride is hybrid dark ride-rollercoaster that is named after the second movie in the popular The Mummy franchise. While it features the same name as a coaster at sister park Universal Studios Florida, the version at Universal Studios Hollywood actually differs from it significantly.
Whereas the Florida version places riders into a "movie set" during the production of another film in the series, Hollywood's version places guests into the world of the movie itself. This begins with the ride's queue, which waiting riders exploring the interior of an ancient Egyptian tomb (complete with a number of "booby traps").
After boarding trains that resemble mine cars, guests enter the opening dark ride section. There, they are terrorised by some of the evil Imohtep's minions, before encountering the mummy himself. Linear induction motors are used to propel the train to speeds of up to 40 miles per hour, before it races through a series of twists, turns and drops. There are several surprises in store, although the "burning ceiling" effect and other key elements of the Florida ride are absent here.
