Hey MWers! TODAY WAS MY LAST DAY OF SCHOOL!!!!!. And next year I'll be an 8th grader! WAHOO!!!!!!! Well that's what happened to me today what's going on at the parks? I haven't posted for a while cuz of school but since school is over I hav the WHOLE summer to catch up on what I missed!
What is the best day you've ever had at DL? Mine is when I was on Spring Tour and we went to DL for the day in the chaperone groups so I went with my friends. And I went on Madderhorn for the first time and loved it! And I stayed from a little after 8am to about 11:30pm, the longest I've stayed in a day. And it was last month on April 10th.
" Wow strangers are screaming for me, there's a conga line of movie stars, it's like a party at Charlie Sheen's house."-Genie "Aladdin". That's the first thing the genie said at the Heritage Festival Awards Ceremony. He said more funny things but I didn't record them. Sorry! At least I recorded this! Enjoy!
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!
