In Challenge of Tutankhamon riders are invited to join an expedition into the temple of Tutankhamon to collect treasures for an historical museum. The temple however turns out to be cursed by an Egyptian god. Riders are asked to shoot targets in order to escape from the curse, collecting points along the way. The number of points determines the end of the ride: only when riders collect enough points they may enter the final scene which includes the treasury.

The building that houses Challenge of Tutankhamon previously housed Le Secret de La Licorne (The Secret of the Unicorn), a free flow boat ride revolving around Tintin. After the ride was closed after the 1995 season, it stayed dormant for several years, except when in use for a haunted house during Halloween. This lasted until the park, now bought out by the Six Flags chain, decided to put Challenge of Tutankhamon in its place.
Those who are a little more observant can spot the Six Flags logo hidden in the queue-line.
