I'd say this was a pretty successful vinyl trading trip! Pulled two chasers from the blind box- a cast member chaser DLR Icon series and Sammy Smackdown from the Extreme Wrestlers of Vinylmation series!
Congrats to @LeftyLightning, @BellesLibrary, @PinkMinnie, @SBsnowwhite and @lizzie4280 you guys are the winners of you own Solo originals! DM me you addresses and I'll have the drawings out as soon as their done!
#RAK! So, a lot of you might not recognize my name because I've taken about a half a year hiatus from my regular MouseWait routine, so many of you may not know I'm a MW artist! I haven't drawn in a while and I'm feeling artsy so I want to give five MouseWaiters their own sketch of their favorite character drawn by me! A simple add me will do, along with the character you want drawn. RAK will close More...
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!
