The Revenge of the Mummy coasters use Linear Induction Motors (LIM), a technology used to launch riders from a complete standstill. The coaster in Florida features 3 LIM launches.


The coaster lasts 3 minutes and features a top speed of 45 mph. The track is 2200 ft. long featuring no inversions, 80 degree banked turns, and a 50 degree angle of descent. The building housing the coaster was previously home to one of Universal's landmark attractions, "Kongfrontation". Homages to the Kong attraction can be found in several areas within the Mummy attraction. It has been suggested that this article or section be merged with Universal Orlando. ...


Although the coaster shares a name with the one in Hollywood, each has a unique plot and track layout. The Florida version boasts a fake unload section while the Hollywood version boasts a slightly longer backwards section climaxing in a fiery turntable ending.


The Ride

The cars dip out from under a falling wall, and are sent into an encounter with scarab beetles, before being sent backwards, rotated, then rocketed upwards into the coaster portion straight through Imhotep's mouth.
