    Re: Another refurb coming up for Indiana Jones

    When I went in April of this year, it seemed the refurb really worked wonders for the ride. I was there on Friday, and the ride stopped inappropriately a few times. Specifically, during the boulder scene. Definitely saw the boulder moving backwards.

    Hopefully this refurb will have it running 100% again!

    Really?? Yesterday you couldn't even hear Mara or Indy talking. I wanted the volume up more.

    Re: Another refurb coming up for Indiana Jones

    I'll never forget when I worked Jungle Cruise back in early 95 and one night, about two weeks prior to Indy opening date, they were looking for volunteers to put in some over time for a special project. They didn't say what it was but I signed up anyway.

    I could hardly believe that those of us who signed up were lucky enough to be the first ride testers for Indy! It was absolutely amazing. No one had ever seen the inside of the temple que or anything before so we were just spellbound by everything. This was obviously way before cell phone cameras so there was no chance any of the stuff we were seeing would ever get leaked to the public.

    We rode Indy for 4 hours in various modes. Sometimes fast, sometimes a slow crawl. I guess they were testing all the different random patterns the on board computers were capable of. Unfortuntaley most of the time the sound was off so we didn't really experience the full ride until towards the end of the testing when they sent us through in full show mode.

    Let me tell you that those of you who remember how wild and fast it was when the attraction first opened can't compare it to when we were testing it. You literally had to hold on to that bar in front of you or you might have been thrown from the car. Seriously. It was that wild. Thanks to our feedback (and whiplash) they toned it down just a tad.

    I agree they definitely need to make audio adjustments.

    Could they now use Harrison's voice and look?

    Up to Harrison Ford. They tried to before, but Disney messed it up.

    Yes, but because they fully own the franchise now, doesn't that mean they own his likeness in that role?

    When do you work Indy? I know that the close it often because it is one of the big rides (Space Mountain, Matterhorn, Thunder Mt. etc) It might just close for a morning or a day.
