For those of you that haven't been to Carthay Circle yet, this is an ice cube sphere. If you order a Manhattan or carthay martini this is what you get. They start with a square ice cube and put it in this thingy and it "presses" it into this sphere. It is soo cool. You can see it at the bar.
Day 12! Yes we are headed home today. Thank you to everyone that shared our fun! We always try to bring people on RSR when we have extra seats. The highlight of this trip was a family from Australia. It was their last day and they were telling the kids the line was too long. So we asked them to join us. They were amazed and said they love Americans kindness. I loved the joy on the kids faces!
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!
