Yeah, Mummy's fab, don't hate on it!

California's is a bit crappy, but, I still thought it was quite good. There's a lot WORSE in the World <3

Of course there's a lot worse, but there wasn't one that was more disappointing! The one moment of airtime I got didn't make up for the rest of the ride. Hollywood's couldn't be more disappointing because I wouldn't expect anything good to begin with.

Singapore's is the most fab. I think it combines the best parts of the other two. Although, the one in California was better than I expected, probably because all the hate people give it meant I rode it with no expectations...

Do not go on the one in LA then as that does nothing.
Yeah, especially when I went, it literally did nothing! haha, Sat down, locked the restraints, then it broke down, we had to be manually released and got kicked off the platform. Over an hour queuing for literally nothing. Eugh.

Yeah, I saw a video of that version and liked that they redid the plot to remove the stupid fake ending thing and the coffee.

You were lucky! It's bad enough that you didn't want to endure the next 3 minutes!

The Mummy at USO is by far one of my favourite rides. IMO, probably one of the best "family" coasters out there.

Most disappointing? Probably the Big One, or Superman at SFMM. The Big One is kinda self explanatory, it was pretty painful for me, and the layout is just meh, well, aside from after the MCBR. And I was expecting loads from Superman, but I was young, and uneducated, now when riding its lost sister at DreamWorld, I had no expectations and actually quite enjoyed it.

Alpengeist @ Busch Gardens Williamsburg looks pretty awesome from the ground POV - looking up at those huge sprawled-out inversions, especially the cobra roll looking fairly massive while waiting in line for the Loch Ness Monster. Being so large may look cool but this is also its weakness - the trains take some time to travel through them, reducing potential g-forces, as well as experiencing a less intense "throw around" sensation. Looks awesome, but its bite isn't as convincing as its bark. Bigger isn't always better.
