Just wanted to say thanks to all the veterans and all the soldiers serving currently. Today it's been 68 years since D-Day. The day the greatest generation charged the beaches of Normandy, and began to take France back from Hitler. This world would have been a much different place if it weren't for that great generation. For that I say thank you.. June 6, 1944 should never be forgotten. God Bless More...
God bless this country. Let us never forget what happened this fateful day 10 years ago. To all who lost someone that day although it does little to console the emptiness I'm sure you feel in your heart for your loved one. We will never forget.
Just FYI I accidentally posted for splash mountain when I meant to post for space mountain. So the 4:15 return time and the 25 minute wait posted at 1:30 was for space mountain not splash mountain. Sorry.
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!
