The WINNER is HandMeAChurroImmaFaint! Please, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Congratulations on winning, and THANK you to tall who entered! The winner didn't respond, so I figured I'd try this RAK again. This time, a simple "add me" will do. I'm giving away a Star Tours boarding pass that CMs got when previewing the attraction. I'll pick a winner (at random) tomorrow aroun More...
I just wanted to give Admin a huge thanks for everything he has done. And to say if it weren't for him their would have been no way for me to have met so many amazing people. Anyways goodnight all! :-)
OK, gonna try a RAK. 4 tix to Walt Disney Family Museum good any day through 12/30. These are from my membership, but I do not need to be with the winner when they go. Please only enter if you really plan on using these. The museum is in San Francisco. Good luck!
Attention Inland Empire MWers. I want to get started on planning this inland meetup for Sunday, February 20th at either GameWorks @Ontario Mills or a different location @Victoria Gardens. Let's discuss it here. "Like" this post or subscribe to it so it's easy to find later!
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?
