PG of course. I'll go first. I actually like to watch reruns of The Golden Girls....
Something nostalgic I think, it was on when I was a kid.
Do you remember your 1st visit to Disneyland? When was it? As a child, as an adult, is your 1st visit coming up soon? I remember my 1st trip. I was about 6, it was in 85', and we stayed at the Disneyland Hotel. We rode the monorail into the park. I can still recall how Main Street looked the 1st time I saw it. So magical! My Mom, Dad, little sister, two Aunts and my Grandma were all there. 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!
