Sahara Traders Gets A New Look with Tons of Amazing Details and Easter Eggs Ahead of Revenge of the Mummy Reopening at Universal Studios Florida

Revenge of the Mummy will reopen from refurbishment soon, but before it opens, the gift shop at the exit will have to transform back to Sahara Traders. While Revenge of the Mummy has been closed for refurbishment, the store served as the temporary Universal Monsters Tribute Store. Sahara Traders is back, but it’s gotten an amazing update.

The monsters are gone, but a new theme is taking shape. The Museum of Antiquities is coming to life with the addition of tons of new props and details. There are more than a few Easter Eggs in this store, so fans will want to spend some time looking around. We won’t spoil them all for you (yet), but here’s a look at the store’s transformation.

A wooden crate atop one of the displays appears to be broken open. Let’s hope that was from the outside and not the inside.
