    Are you comparing it to our Indiana Jones, or is it really just a terrible ride? From what I've seen, it looks pretty cool.

    both. this is just my opinion but i have a big problem with that one. although they did run it backwards when i was there so there might have been some things that i missed.
    think Flashback at SFMM with some jungle-ish plants and random junk thrown about.

    Why? Because management wasn't intelligent, that's why.

    Even with the nice scenery, most French people greatly dislike the park.

    When comparing their park with ours, trust me...Disneyland is far better as a whole.

    If anything they have a couple on enhancements on a few rides that we have...once Pirates gets updated here, theirs won't have anything on ours.

    Le Indiana Jones et la Templ du Peril trains were recently turned forward again. It does look fun though. Although the loop looks a little tight.

    I for one, would love to see a temporary overlay of Phantom Manor here. Their Phantom Manor looks so much more haunting and it actually has a story.

    Well, had they built a nice one like the one pictured above, how long till some Bonehead would climb on top of it, fall, break his neck, and sue? The cartoon one is more retard-safe.

    They *DID* export the tuna sandwiches too, right? If not, it's angry mob time.

    First, Indy is a crappy ride, compared to the Anaheim ride and otherwise. The theme is far too shallow for Disney, there's no story or whatever.

    Disneyland Anaheim is my favorite park, with DLP as a close second. But what I wanted to say...I personally think Pirates is best in Paris, even *with* the French speech. The setting is just perfect. And I don't think I'd like Sparrow in the ride, so I'm praying that won't happen in Paris.

    Believe me, we have a ton of better rides. MY old homeroom teacher/Current TA teacher/mom's friend went to there about 2 years ago and she said she didnt like it at all. She did bring us a CD back and i couldnt understand it at all.

    When can you tell you are surrounded by hardcore Disney fanatics?

    When they view the photo in the first post and only see Skull Rock while totally missing the figurehead on the ship!
