Fall is around the corner and Halloween Horror Nights’ spooky doors open tonight. Catch up on the latest news, discounts, and announcements in this months Around the Universe. Also, today is my 36th birthday – happy birthday to me!
Revenge of the Mummy
Revenge of the Mummy has reopened after a refurbishment that lasted nearly eight months and is now in Technical Rehearsals. The attraction’s control systems were changed, projections updated, and animated figures refurbished. The attraction remains the same – a tour of The Mummy set goes south after we fall into an evil Imhotep’s trap. Fire, fog, projections, and a coaster segment follow. Yes, Brendan does get his cup of coffee still.

Technical Rehearsals mean the attraction could close at any time and all effects might not be working. Follow Touring Plans’ social media and the blog for Revenge of the Mummy updates.

2 1/2 miles south of the current main resort campus is the new Epic Universe theme park. YouTube user Cygnus uploaded a great video shot via a drone of the construction. Highlights include vertical construction work on the How to Train Your Dragon land and hub roller coaster. The massive Harry Potter show building houses the Ministry of Magic and a new state-of-the-art dark ride.
