Dear GoofyJoe! Thank you so much for the Ellie badge! I gave the one I bought at Disneyland to my sister-in-law who loves pins. So I an so thrilled to have this. I like it even better than the Disney ones. I can't believe you did this for me sending a few brochures. Keep us updated on your ceiling! That's my cat's foot, btw.
I'm curious. Every day when I come to MW, I notice basically the same people listed under Top MWers of the Week. Coaster, Tom, Prince Corey, Dave, etc. seem to always be there almost weekly. So do y'all go to the parks every day and enter wait times? If so, you are sure lucky to be able to go so often.:)
About the Wheel of Death, do you only call it that due to the swinging cars? Or are people also scared on the fixed cars? I am only bothered by the swinging cars myself. After one swinging ride, I will only go on the fixed cars now. I find them to be pretty tame.
This is a photo of my grandson and Prince Charming. He introduced himself to us outside the Princess Fantasy Faire. He was sympathizing with Ben about having to wait for his sisters, etc. Ben was suspicious of him. Lol I have never seen the Prince any other time.
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!
