    Rode the attraction over 30 times this last trip, did not happen once. Only once the effect didn't work at all. Worked again the very next ride. So I would say at least for now it's safe to assume it is infrequent.

    Here are the different variations of what Indy says in the boulder room.

    I haven't been on the ride yet, so can someone check this for me? From the new videos, I can definitely tell there's a bigger pause between the two lines. By the time Mara is done with the second line, you're already turning the corner. The original dialogue had Mara finishing the two lines and then yelling "HA! Ha-ha" as you turn the corner. Is the "HA! Ha-ha" still there? I can't hear tell because the sound of the music from the next room is too loud. Or did they cut straight to the next scene?

    His laugh is gone and yeah, I think they start his second line too late because you are right that by the time he is done finishing what hes saying you're already in mid turn into the next room.

    How did they change the Mara voice and never consider in 8 years paying Harison ford to record some lines.

    It doesn't sound like the original to me. The original is deeper and fuller and has a more power affect, imho. However, this is much better than the voice a couple weeks ago.

    It could have been tweaked, but it is the original recording.

    I'm sure it's been considered time and again. Ford reportedly has never had any love for this ride since the Super Bowl show disaster.
    "The old man's gonna knock on the sky. Listen to the sound."

    AP'er since 2004. Yup.....I'm one of THEM.

    Re: Mara's old voice returns!!

    Well I'm not sure if I heard this right, but he actually recorded the lines for the ride but he said he didn't want them used for the Super Bowl commercial for the opening day. Somehow the voice tracks ended up in the commercial and so he had them take them out so they had to find a replacement.
    I think that one of his tracks is still in ther, it's when you go in the snake room and he usually says "Snakes, you guys are on your own." But occasionally he says not as often "Watch out for anything that slithers." And that actually sounds more like Harrison Ford than the other tracks. I don't know if it really is him I just heard it somewhere.

    I copied this quote from another thread, but this is the answer you're looking for..

    There was some snafu involving a lower-level engineer who didn't get the memo and ended up using Ford's voice recordings for the Super Bowl promotion. Not surprisingly, Ford found out that his voice had been used, and told Disney that there was no way that his voice could be used on the ride. Once that had happened, Disney had no choice but to find another actor to record the lines.

    I had a chance to talk to one of the creative executives from Imagineering after an official Disney presentation, and I asked if this account were accurate. He said he couldn't comment, which I took as confirmation that it was pretty close to the truth (or maybe something more embarrassing for Disney had actually happened).

    There's nothing showing that backs up that statement as fact that I could find.
