    We rode on Indy last night and loved the effects (on the track to the left), but I could not understand one word of what that voice said. Still, overall (with the visuals), I thought Indy had improved. Maybe just have the voice yell in a different language since so many Americans are terrified of foreign languages.
    Just kidding, America!


    Now Google "Funny Language Course" and behold the greatest teacher of foreign languages, moi, Tom Sinsky.

    Re: Mara's old voice returns!!

    I don't think that this was 100% confirmed... Was that replacement voice Neil Patrick Harris?

    I rode it the other day and it definitely sounded like 2 different voices at the beginning, something was different or off, but it was definitely a lot better than the one they had before this.

    I think the new effects are great, just not the "Cars" eyes.
    I think they should remove the animated eyes and replace it with the "No!" Or "Foolish Mortals!" Track, right before the statue bleeds, cracks, or shoots lightning.

    What do you guys think?

    I'm not very familiar with the history between Harrison Ford and the Indy attraction, but what exactly is the "Superbowl Disaster" and why does he dislike the ride? Did he not like the way Disney used the Superbowl to advertise the ride or something?

    You saw the video, right? Just kidding.
    He didn't want them to use his voice tracks and at the very beginning is his voice that they were going to use for the ride. The agreement was to not use his voice tracks to for it and at the very beginning they just so happened to make their way into it. (I don't know if I'm right, I just heard it somewhere)

    It did sound slightly different to me so I created a video from various on-ride recordings so I could listen to all of them back to back.

    I just don't like those new eyes at all, they should've just redone the lights inside and keep the new effects, maybe have an actual "fire" effect inside that shifts color and flashes.

    The eyes are for sure the weakest link in the effect. It used to be you when entered the hall and locked eyes with the idol you stared into them for a few seconds as you made your way up the ramp and then the eyes began to smolder and you were sent to the gates of doom. Now they are closed as you make your way towards the idol thus meaning there are no eyes to actually lock to. Then instantly after they flip open all hell brakes loose. Don't get me wrong I like the new effects, but the eyes which are supposed to be the main focus and the reason you take the crazy ride you do, thus the set up for the whole ride now fall to the background as they are drastically overshadowed by Mara's new awesome animated face. You should be staring into them as you make your way towards the idol like before. I think it was a better build up and gave you time to lock eyes with Mara and process that it was not a good thing at all.

    Totally agree with this. I miss the Shout of "No!", "Foolish Mortals!" or "Infidel!"

    Re: Mara's old voice returns!!

    Now that I've been on it a couple times since this voice has been "brought back", there's definitely a really subtle difference. I'm still convinced it is the same voice (the same voice actor). To me, it almost seems like the tracks in use now are the original un-edited ones as I always thought that the ones that played before had a lowered pitch on them.
