Hello friends! First just let me say thank you to everyone for the well wishes and pixie dust. We got lots of text calls and messages to check in. I'm home now a little later than expected due to some complications but all is well. I still have quite a bit of pain but I'm on the mend. I won't go into details about my stay in the hospital just that it was nothing life threatening and I'm going to b More...
Paging @dizneegrl! Your RAK arrived on a much needed day! Littlelost has been super sick and once I gave him his new toy (after I cut the tags off) he hasn't put it down. Thank you so much! And lostfella says thanks for the jelly bellies. I had one and he wolfed down the rest lol
In light of the news of Diane's passing today I'd like to share a story from my days as a CM. I was working at the main entrance one day doing the guest research grind and having an ok day. I stopped another guest and politely asked to scan her ticket. She obliged and handed it to me. I scanned it and noticed the back said "gold pass." This immediately got my attention as gold passes are given onl More...
Paging PhilipRocks!! Your RAK arrived today! I can't tell you how excited I am. I read it to littlelost tonight before bed and he knocked right out. The notes on the package cracked us up. Thank you again! I plan on reading this to littlelost as well as any future siblings he might have :)
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!
