Universal Studios – Roller Coaster Ride through a Spooky Pyramid

I am petrified of roller coasters.  Somehow I ended up on an indoor ride at the new Universal Studios in Singapore.  Will I go on it again – “No Way!”.  Do I regret it?  – “Actually I’m kinda glad I did”.  It was quite a thrill and not knowing was the best bit.  I think it’s a case of imagined fear being worse than the real thing.  I thought it was one of those, in the dark slow rides, where spooky ‘creatures’ pop out to try to scare you.  I had no idea there were such things as indoor coasters.  I should have become suspicious when at the entry we were told to leave our bags in the locker.  Also it’s called ‘Revenge of the Mummies’, so I should have expected some revenge for daring to enter the tomb.

The ride started out slow then everything goes pitch dark and you dip backwards at a fast speed.  I silently screamed, with my heart in my mouth (i tend to be repressed that way)!  Anyway it’s been a long time since I got the blood pumping (being a sloth who hardly exercises).  So I would recommend this ride for the not so faint hearted.  I guess there are more thrilling ones out there, but for chickens like moi this one’s scary enough.

Avoid the outdoor buggy on rails ride at the Egypt Section.  It’s a total yawn unless you’re a toddler.  You’ll regret spending the best part of an hour queuing.
