Action, adventure, and horror are in abundance in this $40 million spine-tingling thrill ride that combines roller-coaster technology, pyrotechnics, and some super-scary skeletal warriors. The entrance is set up like the tomb of a pharaoh. You walk by Egyptian artifacts and through winding catacombs before boarding a multi-passenger coaster car and zipping into the heart of a haunted labyrinth. "Dead" ahead, you're given the chance to sell your soul for safety and riches.
Regardless of your decision, a guardian mummy sends you hurtling through underground passageways and Egyptian burial chambers where highlights include escaping a beetle-infested burial chamber, zipping backwards through fog, and then racing full-tilt into the mummified mouth of Imhotep. Take note: you feel the 1.5 g-forces when flying uphill, and much of the ride takes place in the dark – so it's pretty intense. Not good for expectant mothers or anyone with neck, back, or heart problems. For people with disabilities: Guests using wheelchairs must transfer to a ride vehicle. Cut down on wait times: head for the single-rider line. Otherwise, use Express Pass or come early or late. Free lockers are available for loose items. Use them.
