    Question Indiana Jones Adventure "Enhancements"

    Sorry if this was posted before.

    I read somewhere that the Indiana Jones ride was also going to have an updated like the Snow White ride ...
    Is this true and are the new effects now working?

    re: Indiana Jones Adventure "Enhancements"

    They've updated 2 of the Indy animatronics. The one at the begining where he is holding the door and the one you see at the end. They are doing it slowly but surely. And Al has been hinting that there may be a full on refurb in the works. Last time I rode it(a few weeks ago) the effects were definitely working better then they have previously even the rat effect which usually never works!

    I know about the 1st being updated (replaced), didn't know the 3rd (last) one was.

    The 3rd animatronic at the end actually hasn't been replaced yet.

    During the previous refurb which was supposed to install the new animatronic at the end, some problems happened to it which prompted them to put the old one back for now.

    I suspect the one day closure (September 22nd) of IJA means that they will reinstall the new animatronic into the ride.

    It's good to hear that Indy is finally getting some much needed attention.

    re: Indiana Jones Adventure "Enhancements"

    Why do people always put enhancements in quotation marks, as if it automatically is going to be something people don't like or that the ride doesn't need? They're usually for the better.

    re: Indiana Jones Adventure "Enhancements"

    It's "enchancements," not "enhancements." I can only assume that it's a portmanteau of "enchantment" and "enhancement." Either that or Splash_mtn can't spell.

    Nothing says Disney like mashing three words together and calling it magic.

    If it is wrong you must correct every single post of micechat that says: "enhancement" because there are a lot.

    BACK TO THE TOPIC...thanks guys I'll be waiting for these "ENCHANCEMENTS" soon!

    re: Indiana Jones Adventure "Enhancements"

    It could definitely use another refurb sadly. I went last Thursday and mid afternoon the 3 doors/selection room was dark and not working at all. Rats didn't work but otherwise things were good. The mouths on the indy in the begging and very end seem to be very very off from when you hear him speak. I hope they can fix that.

    re: Indiana Jones Adventure "Enhancements"

    My last trip to the park I noticed that the beginning scene was different for each door, I had never clearly noticed this before so I would venture a guess that this has been modified somehow? Anyone know?

    "Enhancement" is the normal word.

    A pity. I was hoping for a silly neologism like "Magicalicious" or "Mousetrocity."
