    Indy Question

    Does anyone know where the tracks tie back in to each other. I tried to figure it out last time I was there, but I couldn't. Thanks for any info.

    They never break apart. The room changes, not the track.

    Yes Orville is right the doors are on a track and rotate to fool you into thinking you are going into a different room. BTW Orville that is a hilarious picture you have LOL.

    It really is amazing to see how the lighting and sound change to create the illusion that you are riding down a different track. Next time you go, look carefully at the doors you enter, just as you enter the room you can usually see the room still rotating.

    Also check the floor on the other two potiential doors- no tracks!

    Indy is a marvel- 10 years later and it still blows my mind!

    And the room that lies behind the door is amazing, I agree! You have your painted walls with scrim in front and then the starry ceiling. Which will it be!!! I like the stars most, personally.

    Does the driver still get to choose what path you will take? It's been a while since I've ridden, I hear that the steering wheels have been de-activated. Is that true?

    Still grinning at my naivety thinking there were three different tracks! And I agree, Cousin Orville that pic is the scariest but most amusing yet!

    LOL. Not so much scarier than the real thing these days!

    The driver never choose the path, it was choosen for you. Whether the steering wheel spun or not had nothing to do with the off simulator effects.

    To those of you who did not know the magic of Indy in such vivid details as some of my colleagues here, I apologize for there brazen attacks on naivety- its a precious gift worth retaining and not worth mocking-

    I did notice the floor did look a little odd...

    Now, I know it hasn't been that way since the beginning. I've seen interviews with Geroge about it, and at one time the steering wheel did determine some things.

    Well there ARE tracks, but painted on. There is also a circle painted to make it look like there is some sort of switching system like a train depot that rotates the track. But if you look good, only the track your riding on us sunk into the floor. This had me fooled for a very long time. I still think Indy is one of the best rides ever.
