    Re: Indiana Jones Adventure Major Refurbishment in 2010?

    Indy goes down for refurbs all the time though.. And some of them have been pretty long. Maybe they don't address the particular things that certain people want addressed every time but the attraction is well maintained I think, even if towards the end of each run it starts feeling like a little let down... It sounds like you don't want a refurb you want a redesign.

    It just seems that somebody is always bringing up that Indy is in need of a major refurb and hasn't had one since some time ago like the 2005 one, then it gets another one, but then when it needs another they say again that it hasn't had one since the much earlier date.

    This has probably been mentioned before.

    Originally, in the rat projection room. The jeep transport vehicles where to have the HISTA effect of the mice running through the audience. But this was cut due to the expense of installing the units in the vehicles.

    But that's why it seems blah through that section of the ride.

    I saw that Indy was down for a small refurb right now and quietly cheered. The last two times I've rode, I missed the fire effects in the giant center skull SO MUCH! I agree that it needs some more significant TLC in the near future.

    New Snake or snake room effects.
    I know that snake is fairly impressive, but somehow they can think of something better. I just know it.
    Snake sound by our heads in the vehicle??
    Put a Bug's Life effect literally in the car.

    What about having the jeep actually get "lifted" off the ground and then crash back down?

    I also wouldn't mind seeing some venom dripping from the snake's fangs either.

    The ride needs TLC all over the place. If it did receive a refurb back in '05, it needs another one. Indy needs most, if not all, the effects to be working! I'll be ok without the falling bricks at the start of the ride, but at least bring back the "clouds" and the fire at the bridge. Also, get rid of the sewer smell near the rat room!

    refurb is definitely needed - the last three times I've been to the park, there hasn't been a time when Indy was closed due to mechanical issues (sometimes this would happen twice in one visit). Some much needed TLC would do wonders, and it'd be great if they could put the falling debris effect back into the ride.

    Has anyone else noticed (maybe since the '05 refurb) that the Indy at the end (by the crashed ball) says "Tourists", did he always say that? And, hey, how come its not Harrison Fords voice?

    To really improve the adventure they should add 3-D effects like Universal Florida did with its Spiderman ride, that attraction reminded me of Indy but with much better effects - the 3D combined with the "simulator" ride vehicle really works well if done right.

    The idea of the jeeps blasting outdoors ("Carsland" style) is awesome, not sure how they could do it, but boy would that be cool and they cool promote (think $$$ mouse!) they heck out of it!

    I also heard that there might be some new AAs put including adding Mutt in the mix.....;-)

    Where is Data to show us with his awesome renderings that it would be physically impossible without immense capital investment to tie the ride back to the Jungle Cruise.

    My only complaint really is the rat effect. That is the only one that really ruins the ride for me. And as much as I like Spiderman and IOA, I prefer Indy.

    Agreed. I really wish it would work properly. If they can't make it work, put something else in there.

    nah I like the way the single rider line is set up
