Checking the posts today and see that it is raining today in the park. I have never been to the park when it has rained but it does look like fun, in a weird sort of way. Will be in the park next week so I guess we will have to wait and see what Mother Nature gives us. :)
Trying to catch up on all of the posts from the past week. Have been super busy. Need to get things together so that we can head to the park next Sunday. Bringing hubby and both the kids (21yo and 13yo). It is a FAMILY vacation. :)
So excited!! Was just at the park for Labor Day weekend (sooo many people) and now we are going back mid-Oct... LOVE the park for Halloween....AND we are staying at the Paradise Pier!! First time ever staying at one of the resort hotels. I am totally beside myself right now.. :)
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!
