I'm remembering back when Indiana Jones first opened and the line was crazy long. anyone else shocked when they realized how long and far they can wrap that line around all inside the temple? oh and they would hand out the cards to decode the inscriptions on the walls?
RAK over!!! So I wanted it to be as fair as possible. I wrote all your names on an equal sized piece of paper and through them in a bucket. This way it didn't matter if your entered first or last, since the number generator doesn't normally pick the first or last entry. I will grab a name out right now... okay the winner is....bRADnLEXI. YOU MUST RESPOND IN THE NEXT 24 HOURS OR I WILL PICK A NEW W More...
MY RAK FOR THE STICKERS AND TATTOOS IS OVER!!!! My random number generated was #11. That means MinnieNikki has won!! Please email me your info at Kelsey2126@aol.com. Thanks for all the participants, it made me smile. =)
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?
