    Indiana Jones ride Changed?

    On Indiana Jones, right before you almost get hit by the boulder, I think there was a part when Indiana climbed down the rope. But now, it seems that he just says something, you slightly back up and ride away. Did they change this recently?

    I don't remember him physically climbing down the rope, only moving his legs and saying his usual spiel.

    Indy never climbed down on the rope. He's always hanging there swinging around.

    It's been like that for years.

    Its true. I remember the old Disney intro they used to play on the VHS movies (trust me, I watched Toy Story millions of times when I was little) and they had a clip of Indy swinging around on the rope.
    Found a video!
    Its at :26.

    Just from looking at the clip, I would say that was a filmed reproduction of the intended effect of that part of the attraction using a live actor in place of the animatronic.
    Man, next to BluRay, those old VHS tapes are starting to look antique!

    Whether that was an AA or an actor, the real Indy AA has never climbed down the rope. Sorry, TikiGhost, but memory is a surprisingly fickle thing. Heck, I could swear the first time I rode Indy, there was a scene involving a cave filled with stalactites and stalagmites, strobing with a violent purple light. No joke!

    Re: Indiana Jones ride Changed?

    I rode Indy a couple of times this month so far and that scene looked pretty much the same. I thought I noticed a difference in the action of the car throughout the entire ride. It seemed much livelier, bouncier than it used to be. It was a lot more fun. Say, does anyone know exactly where that skeleton with the mouse ears is located? I know which scene, but not Where in the scene. Thanks!

    yup
    maybe when you "move", the first time you were on the ride it looked like he moved??

    Ah, you're looking for Bones! What you want to do is look waaaayyy off to your left and sort of behind you near the start of the mummy chamber. You should be able to see him before that first right turn in the chamber. He's not incredibly difficult to see, but you might not see him on the first try. Just do your best to get a seat on the left side of the vehicle and look all around back there once you've entered the scene.

    He's hard to see (IMHO).
    You have to be in a certain spot in the jeep.
    When we got an evac on the ride, I had to ask where he was.

    Thank you! I will remember that next time we go! I saw a picture of Bones in the final E-Ticket magazine, but didn't remember where he was.
