Summer 2004 has now become "June 25th" for the rides official opening
Here you see the train navigate through the "treasure room."
Coming out of the station you can see the LIMs which move the cars through the
'dark ride' section of the Mummy.
Check out that "Montu-type" dude in the treasure room!
Here is a good shot of the car in the LIM section which will launch the riders
into the Mummy's tomb!
Here is the actual launch area and you can see the track curve up and to the
left in the distance.
Here is the first drop just out of the launch!
The Mummy's tomb sure has a lot of curves!
Ooh....backwards part! Stare at the picture long enough and it will feel
just like you're on it!
We were lucky enough to find them testing the "fire effect" at the end
of the ride.
For not being real fire, this effect worked really well, and it's not even
completed yet. Along with all the smoke, lighting, and sound FX,
there will be images projected on the screen above the riders.
