    Indiana Jones Expansion in the Future?

    I know some of you wise MCer's must know something of this. I was surfing the internet and came across it on Wikipedia. This sounds so cool, I really wish they would have done this. We could have 2 E tickets where IJA is plus an indoor showbuilding section of JC and an additional show building for the DRR. Does anybody know more about this? Do you think it could still be done in the future or is it too late?

    Indiana Jones and the Lost Expedition
    A huge complex designed to house the Indiana Jones Adventure as well as a mine cart rollercoaster and part of the Jungle Cruise, with the Disneyland Railroad going through the middle.

    Re: Indian Jones Expansion in the Future?

    From what I can remember this was the original concept for Indiana Jones And The Forbidden Eye (under a different name though). Unfortunately it was never funded all the way.

    I hope someday some Disney park does get this version. But, sadly, I do not see this happening for the Disneyland version.

    Re: Indian Jones Expansion in the Future?

    As I recall, that was the original proposed concept for IJA, however, due to budget cuts, the extra attractions and expansions were wiped right off the drawing board. The budget cuts also kept the 'rat room' and 'dart corridor' from meeting their full potential.

    I could be wrong, but I recall this to be the case. Hope it helps.

    I found the info on Wikipedia, I have never heard anything about this either. So I figured I would ask the wise folks at Micechat.

    Man what a bummer.
    It must be so frustrating for WDI, they come up with such awesome concepts and then some pencil pusher slashes them to bits. very sad.

    The mine cart rollercoaster was probably where the idea came from for Indiana Jones and the temple of peril ride at DLP. (Which I have ridden )

    Thats right, that was the original concept for IJA, they had the artwork hanging in the NOS gallery for awhile.

    This is small, but best I could find

    I think I have a copy of it in one of my books. If I do, I will try to scan and post bigger tomorrow.
