I live in citrus heights Ca, work as a store manager for a high end aquarium service and instalation co. Die hard Disney fan ever since I was real little. AP passholder and in my spare time if I ever have any I teach snowboarding in the mountains.
I gotta say sometimes I really enjoy walking around the park by myself and not riding anything, just enjoying the sights and whistling to the music, seeing all the smiles on everyone's faces. Just makes me feel so good....having a great night tonight and feeling fantastic, I love this place so much!
Had a fantastic 40th birthday party and was off all week...friends took me out tonight to see Wreck it Ralph, it was Great...I collect and restore classic arcade and pinball machines so it was even more awesome, a good friend of mine supplied most of the classics to Flynns and the same with the Wreck it Ralph arcade!!! I also got Nightmare before Christmas on Blu Ray which I may watch tonight and 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!
