The Mummy

This was the only roller coaster I rode. I’m not a huge fan of roller coasters, but Mervin talked me into it and so I rode with Julie. It’s based on the movie “the Mummy.” You travel through the tomb tumbling across various hazards that send you dropping and angry spirits that throw fire (real fire by the way) at you.

The graphics and characters were extremely realistic, and even though the roller coaster is contained within a building, it was plenty of dropping and turning and spinning for little old wimpy me.

I must confess, I enjoyed it, although not enough to attempt another roller coaster. It’s amazing Julie still has working ear drums after sitting next to me screaming, “Oh God, Oh God…” And no, I wasn’t saying it the way some people do casually. It was a heartfelt prayer of panic! I felt a bit dizzy when we got off and figured maybe I shouldn’t push it. Mervin and Julie were much braver, but more on that in another entry.
