It would be much more fun to experience this together, I would love to be able to go in with her today!! Just a last ditch effort to ask my MW friends, I figure it's worth a try. Have a great day everyone!!!
Hello MW friends,
I'll be in the parks tomorrow afternoon with my grandkids and staying at HoJo:) I have a bit of a problem and wonder if any of you who will be in the parks in the morning and who don't want to attend world of color can get me some fast passes for the 8:00 show? My daughter and her family are here from Arizona, her and hubby will be there all day. I will bring my grandkids in th 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!
