Yesterday I noticed something that I'm sure most of you MW'ers have already seen. I saw the fish Mr. Limpet on Ariel's Under the Sea Adventure! He's a bit hidden so when I saw him I screamed in delight! And because I was so happy I saw it I couldn't stop dreaming about it last night! Ha!! I love when I see hidden things at the parks!
I'm in line for Holiday haunted mansion and the line goes right by the villains dance party. They started to play the cha cha electric slide and the part came up where you had to clap and everyone in line clapped. Love how everyone is still in good spirits!!
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!
