    Talking Indiana Jones construction photos!

    Howdy, all! So, one of the big things on my wish list for years now has been construction photos for Indiana Jones, particularly the queue. Well, thanks to some diligence on a friend's part...I've now seen these. They start at the bottom of that page (2) and continue at the top of the next one. Good stuff! Just thought I'd share, and there wasn't really an existing thread to post it in.

    Cool.

    You actually got my hopes up that they were doing some refurb on it to clean it up a bit.

    Those were fun to look at! It's always amazing to see just how much work they put into these attractions.

    Being a former construction worker I can appreciate what being on a massive project like that is like. Sadly I only ever built boring hospitals and corporate buildings. Data, I KNOW you have the layout for the Indy queue somewhere. I'd really like to see how it lays out in the park and what it looks like from the outside. A link would be nice...

    Wikimapia's aerial photo is pretty nicely annotated. That big rectangular building is the main show building for the attraction, which contains the entire attraction and everything in the queue after the hall of descending blocks (i.e. the rotunda, film room, and loading area). The Wikimapia link also includes the outline of the rest of the queue (drawn by me! ), which is a long, zig-zaggy building of sorts that's mostly above ground. (The bat caves, spike room, and hall of descending blocks are underground, beneath the berm.)

    The bamboo canyon shares a wall with the first Pirates of the Caribbean show building - the loading area, specifically. There are even doors in this area that lead directly into there. A little further along - further south - there are BIG "elephant doors" that lead into an outdoor service area to the west and a path behind the Jungle Cruise to the east. This is the only unthemed area of the queue outside the main show building that's really visible from the outside. It's got plain green walls and looks very much like the Pirates show building it's adjacent to.

    I really wish my Flickr account hadn't reverted from its "Pro" status...if it hadn't, I could show you all this through renders of my 3D model. I ought to take care of buying that back again someday...in the mean time, [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hXt6ZTH2ORE&feature=PlayList&p=A31315E0903 EB697&index=2"]this video[/ame] and others on my channel should be helpful.
