So I walk into am/pm and the line is enormous. When I walk up to the guy at the end I ask him ?Is this the line for the Matterhorn?" He laughs says ?We were just there." So we start talking Disney. I asked if he had a smart phone and proceeded to tell him about MouseWait. So hopefully they'll be some new members soon. I wish I got on here more, but hey,I'm still representing. ;)
So I asked the forces that be for a raise so I could keep my happiness alive for another year, but it's not looking like they're in no big hurry to do so. That said we will not be renewing our passes and Saturday will be our last day playing in the park for an undetermined time. So if you have an inkling to have some Evil in your life, come on down to the park and get into shenanigans with the Mrs More...
I'd like to say a big Thank You to all that attended the MouseWait reunion and other events this weekend. You are what keeps this app exciting and new. Also a big round of applause to the Event Staff for making everything move so efficiently. Last but not least, Thank You Admin for creating and overseeing this wonderful app. Let's see what we can do by Birthday time to help make it even more of a More...
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!
