Hi, I'm actually 17 so I might be able to help. I go to the parks quite often so my family often lets me go and do whatever and catch up later. But if I go with my cousins I stick to what they want to do since they are younger and I'm not with them much. So what I could suggest is have her be with you as a group but also allow her to have some free time if she does want to go do something the litt More...
A few weeks ago it was like 30 min wait and I stopped and was like nope I'm not waiting that long, sorry, and the CM working pulled out a "Buddy Pass" and told us to go through the exit! It totally made my day, it was so unexpected! I was actually fine not going on, since I go every trip but I do really enjoy this attraction!
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!
