I agree Mummy has a nice build up. But falls short. At least in the Hollywood version, they brightened the lights in the load area. Not sure if it was a safety reason from someone somehow falling in the tracks (I that was in Orlando). The 1 technology that bugs me that Universal didn't decide to put on Mummy is a vertical lift. I've had various ideas how a vertical sequence could enhance and push forward a certain story for the ride...
