    Re: Changes to Indiana Jones

    I'm going there tomorrow so unless someone else answers the question about the queue, I'll get pics and let you know what I find.

    They could be having soft openings for a number of things: to make sure the bugs are worked out of any software updates, last minute checks to ensure the effects are working under actual operating conditions... etc.

    For as complex a ride as Indy is, it makes sense to soft open and test under operating conditions. Get as many of the last minute kinks that show up under real world situations rather than test conditions fixed before going full operational again. If it were just lighting, then it probably wouldn't matter, but if there were changes to ride control/vehicle operation then they would want to do tests like this.

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    Re: Indiana Jones Soft Opens Today!!!

    Here are some reports from folks that had a chance to ride it yesterday from the other Indy Update thread..

Everything has been refurbished and looks great though (except for the Indy figure at the end, he had dribble on his chin and his mouth wasn't moving). The bug headlight projection is WAY clearer and looks great and the snake seems to move a bit more then I remember. Overall the effects that have been there for the past 5 years are still there and have been brought back up to standard, and the effects that used to be there (falling rocks) will never be back. Hope that answers everybody's dying questions.

    Oh and same voice-over, hasn't changed a bit

The audio sounds great, and the vehicles have motion effects they never had before (subtle shifts and bumps and rumbles, again nothing major, but overall a really noticeable upgrade). Indy is back in a big way, and Disneyland has a modern E Ticket that can stand up to Radiator Springs Racers again.

The dart room looked the same to me. It may be a subtle difference that I didn't notice. Lighting seemed better all around. And the lightning in the first AA room seemed more intense (or perhaps just working as it always should have).

The bamboo and rope pull effects in the queue work again but the bamboo is still a wobbly piece of crap. All in all it was a solid refurbishment that just refreshed everything. That's all.
    There you have it!

    Glad that the attraction looks new again but also in the same token disappointed that they didn't bother to enhance anything or restore the original vehicle motion. I mean where's the effort, they had over 3 months?

    I'm crossing my fingers, toes, and eyes that the threads will be merged soon. However, I can see the point in waiting as I'm sure other parallel threads will pop up on this as well and that way they can all be merged at once instead of having to merge them every time another arises.

    Can anyone comment on the widening of the bridge that was apparently supposed to happen for safety reasons?

    I'm sure they will all be merged but in the meantime I wanted to share what was going on in the other thread in case anyone missed it.

    Thank you for that. As someone who pops in for a few minutes here and there at random times in the day, it is nice to see everything in one place.

    Glad to hear all the effects are working again!
