Okay boys and girls. That's a wrap. No more VMTs here. In my opinion (mine and mine alone), the Lounge has become a sad, empty and pale imitation of its former glory days. I will continue making VMTs (as I enjoy the creative outlet) and post them to my Tumblr feed - http://tinyurl.com/bxj6dnv - so, if you want to see further plastic shenanigans, go there. C More...
Hey, potential trolls!!! I got a hold of all your moms. They all profusely apologize for not hugging you when you were kids and want to make up for it now. So why not give Mousewait a break and go get those hugs your empty souls so so so desire!
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!
