[Queue the William Dozier old-school Batman narrator voice] In the early nineteenth century, the "Gentleman Pirate" Jean Lafitte amassed a fortune in gold and other valuables. Later in life, he was forced to hide his treasure in the sandy shores of the Gulf Coast Islands. In the 1950s, Lafitte's great-grandson emerged offering family heirlooms for sale.
We were lucky enough to get our hands on a Lafitte family artifact that was modernized with technology from the 1950s.
This vintage machine was known as... the Trivilator.
After months of development and fine tuning in our top secret underground MouseWait Labs, we've remastered and modified this antique apparatus to work with mobile devices (i.e. we made an iPhone app).
The New York Times calls the Trivilator, "The most innovative app we've ever seen" ***They didn't really say this.
We're just weeks away from launching the most revolutionary trivia app in the (brief) history of trivia applications. The Trivilator will entertain and educate you with hours of multi-player Disneyland Trivia -- and it might even improve your social life! (Disclaimer: The Trivilator does not teach social skills, you must learn those on your own. There is a chance that the Trivilator could make your social life worse--but that would be your fault, and not the Trivilator's).
The Trivilator will challenge you, teach you, and reinforce friendships as you play and chat together. This social trivia game doesn't generate worthless questions -- the Trivilator will teach you more about the Parks, enhance your visits, and cause you see Disneyland in a whole new way. It's a lot more fun than reading a boring guide book!

Groundbreaking for the Temple of the Forbidden Eye occurred in August 1993. More than 400 Imagineers worked on its design and construction. Tony Baxter led a core project team of nearly 100 Imagineers.
Several early concepts were considered for Indy including a walk-through adventure and a high-speed mine car adventure within a temple. To avoid a long queue, Imagineers even considered using Jungle Cruise launches to shuttle guests to the loading area. The team tested key show elements in a Burbank warehouse on a full-sized elevated track that resembled a freeway. This enabled the team to test set pieces, lighting, effects, transport clearances and motion profiles.
To create space for the 0.5-mile queue area and the 50,000-square-foot show building, an area of the former "Eeyore" parking lot was demolished, and the Monorail and Jungle Cruise attractions were rerouted. As I'm sure some of you know, an old Eeyore parking sign is hidden up in the rafters high above the projection room (in the queue). The sign pays homage to the Eeyore Parking Lot.
To watch some scenes from the opening ceremony:
Happy 19th birthday Indy!
Have you been on this attraction? If so, what is your favorite part or scene?
Thanks for reading and watching! Hope you all have a magnificent Monday!
