In addition to the permanent closing of Universal Studios Florida’s Shrek 4D attraction in January, the park has plans to close another ride at the start of the year. The second shutdown, though, will only be temporary.
The Revenge of the Mummy, an indoor roller coaster with spectacular explosions and a brief appearance by Brendan Fraser, will close for at least half of 2022. The attraction based on The Mummy will be shuttered for maintenance from “January 7 to late summer 2022,” according to a statement to Thrillist.
The dark coaster debuted in 2004, making it one of the park’s older rides. Only Universal Studios Florida will be closed during this time. Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Studios Singapore both have enclosed coasters. There is currently no plan in place to close those for maintenance. The Hollywood coaster debuted in 2004, while the Mummy ride debuted in 2010 at the Singapore facility.
The attraction in Orlando was briefly closed in 2021 for “a quick refurbishment” that includes projection and sound upgrades, according to Theme Park Tourist. “The closure of the ride is only the beginning,” Imhotep carved into his sarcophagus, or something like that.
