The new Transformer ride would be perfect for that! Instead of Transformers fighting, it could be Tiffany and Debbie Gibson! :br

They could easily just get away with about 8 scenes showing the same thing: Joey Fatone getting eaten by a shark!!!

I just went to HHN 22 last night, and I have one question about Revenge of the Mummy...

Has anyone noticed how bright it is? The first scenes are great, I even noticed new lighting effects on the Imhotep animatronic. However, when we reached the scarab scene, the screens were clearly visible. It was even worse when we reached the turntable scene. You could see the turntable mechanism, catwalks, the screens that show the Imhotep projection, everything! Then, after the first launch, it was pretty bright in the show building. You can easily see the track all around you, the catwalks and the supports. Maybe it's just me, but I remember it being MUCH darker in there... :?r

^ I know these are two different rides but I had the exact same experience last year at HHN in Hollywood with their inferior version of the Mummy. It seemed like there was a light on the entire ride and it killed all the fun of being in the dark and not knowing where you were going to go.

Maybe it's cause our eyes are adjusted to the darkness already? That was one thing I thought of, cause there is no way it is that bright during the day. It was disappointing because it was my Dad's first time on the ride and I feel like it just wasn't the full effect.

Maybe they did change it since last year when I went, but It was pitch back in the show building when I was there.
I'm probably TPR's biggest fan of Premier Rides.

In my experience there was lighting throughout the entire building. It was a very dull light and I have no idea why it was dark enough where it would be hard to work on something and light enough where it was a detriment to the experience.

I've noticed that Mummy has issues when it comes to lighting. Some visits the lighting throughout the queue and ride are very dark, dark enough to where you have to have your hand in front of you so you're not running into things. Other days the lights are very bright as Bryce stated I could see a lot of the screens and catwalks.

I agree. The turntable scene was by far the worst. I could barely make out Imhotep as we rotated because it was so bright.

The launch Imhotep projection is looking very nice though!
