    Do you wish Indiana Jones And The Last Expedition had been built?

    An attraction that included not just a ride similar to the current Indiana Jones and a minecart rollercoaster, but also a portion of the Jungle Cruise and Disneyland Railroad!

    I think this would have been incredible, but what what are the opinions of my fellow MiceChatters? Do purists balk at the changes that would be made to Jungle Cruise and Railroad?

    Not if it would have meant no Splash Mountain.

    What if it had no impact on Splash Mountain?

    I feel that getting IJA and SM, is well ahead of IJA, a crappy little coaster, and having a little change to the JC.

    We got two huge attractions, that are both great.

    Thumbs down Re: Do you wish Indiana Jones And The Last Expedition had been built?

    I voted "no/it's better as it is".

    (1) The American-historic DLRR coming through a south Asian temple would be a complete atmospheric clash.

    (2) The Jungle Cruise has become a slapstick ride, while the Temple of Mara is a serious/scary one. Encountering a boatload of yuck-yuckers & standup skipper amidst all of the troop transport perils would be a mood-destroyer.

    (3) The IJA as it is integrates smoothly and æsthetically into Adventureland, including with the adjacent JC. Externally they complement one another [although as often as not the skippers toss some of their jokes in the direction of the Temple landing and exterior queue].

    (4) A mine-cart ride in addition to the troop transport ride would be redundant. Two high-speed, jouncy dark rides through caverns with assorted dangers.

    (5) Adventureland is a bigger, more worldwide concept than just LucasFilm's Indiana Jones movies. Indy has a place as a part of Adventureland, but not vice-versa.

    (6) The JC as it is is one of the few remaining classics of "original Disneyland". It has its own complete atmosphere. It should not be sucked into another atmosphere. Passing the Temple of Mara exterior is just enough.

    No I'm not confused, it sounds like you are.

    Yeah it's really weak. Low capacity, short ride, rough ride and poorly themed. the queue is very well done. I honestly like Goofy's Sky School a lot better although as a stand alone coaster it's not much but it fits in very well to a boardwalk theme. Temple du Peril clone in TDS I've been told is themed a lot better. In summary they are just very cheap coasters.

    I'd imagine an Indy Coaster would be going through caves, long, swoopy, dropping in and out of larger rooms, twisting over glowing lava, and a lot more like the Temple of Doom movie. Not a small coaster tucked into the end of a building.


    Again getting two great attractions leaves me quite happy.

    That was confirmed many years ago in a thread far far away. But seriously, that would have required a epic HUGE show building that more than likely would have ruined the sight-lines for Adventureland, at least the current Indy only ruins the sight-lines for the GCH guests. Take that wealthy 1% $$$. Haha.

    But a ride through the jungle, Splash Mountain, the IASW facade, and Dinosaur-land isn't?

    Well, technically the Jungle Cruise is not one of the best examples to choose, really. Even if the temple hasn't been built there's the comedy that was thrown in to change the pace and some scenes being altered or added, such as the piranha attack before Trader Sam (Both of which I do welcome with open hands). Possibly a better example would be the Fantasyland Dark Rides, or even The Enchanted Tiki Room, since both are contained within their own little story bubble. Heck, no one ever talks about the Main Street Transportation anymore. The transportation literally has an entire land as they're atmosphere.

    As for the exact idea of The Last Expedition being built? Not exactly. The idea of the railroad and Jungle Cruise going through it seems a bit much. But I am all for the bigger showroom and two new exciting attractions to be added to the park. The only problem would be where to put it. Adventureland is a really tiny place. Looking at Google Earth images, the Temple of the Forbidden Eye has already taken a HUGE amount of space OUTSIDE of the park going under the Railroad. If The Last Expedition was built, I could only imagine that the giant unnamed showbuilding right next to IJA right near the New Orleans Square Station would be swallowed by The Last Expedition
