Quick question, will the gates be open around 3am? Or will it be closed due to capacity? Went last year for leap day and the gate closed after we got in at 8pm. Wasn't sure if they opened back up. Thanks for your help.
So my sister in law wanted my help to move my brother into a apartment in LA from San Diego for work. I told her the only way I'm going if you swing me by Hojo for the craft fair. She agreed! Yay! Should be there soon.
This past saturday I got the full effect of what mousewait is. I always was to shy to go to meet ups. I met so many of you and had a blast. Can want to do it again. It was nice meeting rbeezy, uscvcr, RickChavez, chipanddalefan, VfxGenie, Luvvdisney, TheNewTrent and so many more. Check in if you see yourself.
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!
