    Indy going PC?

    While at Disneyland yesterday, a fellow MCer and CM told me about Indy changing some of it's in ride spiels. One of them is the Treasure of Mara and Mara used to use the term "Infidels" and changed it to "Foolish Mortals" which besides Haunted Mansion is used in one of the other chambers. Is there a reason why they don't use "Infidels" is because it's not Politically Correct anymore to use that term? If someone took that to offense that's pretty petty to me.

    Or could this just be that they are changing some terms for the sake of changing the ride? That doesn't make any sense though because the original spiel is still there, just not the "Infidels" word itself. The "Foolish Mortals" part is pretty crappy and is actually lower in volume. Thoughts? I hope that made sense.

    I remember the "Foolish Mortals" being there for quite sometime. Hasn't it been? And yes, I do remember, and loved the "Infidels!" exclamation, much much better.

    It switches in-between the two, actually.

    I have always heard "Infidels!" when I entered the Chamber of Earthly Riches. It's in the Fountain of Eternal Youth that Mara shouts "Foolish Mortals!". I guess I will have to check it out in the near future.

    That's what I thought. Each room has it's own lines I always remember "Infidels!" now it's like a movie being played on tv with the curse words taken out and replaced by other words in this case "Foolish Mortals." Sounds really bad.

    Why don't they just use the spiel from the Fountain of Eternal Youth? If I remember correctly, it's almost the same.

    Mara has three lines at this point.

    "Infidels, you've looked into my eyes. Your destiny now lies beyond the Gates of Doom."

    "Foolish Mortals, you've looked into my eyes. Your path now leads to the Gates of Doom."

    "No, you've looked into my eyes. Your path now leads to the Gates of Doom."

    All lines were there when the ride opened.

    Correct, but you have the wrong introductions for two of the phrases. It should be "No, you've looked into my eyes. Your destiny now lies beyond the Gates of Doom." for the Observatory of the Future and "Infidels, you've looked into my eyes. Your path now leads to the Gates of Doom." for the Chamber of Earthly Riches.

    Right but what I'm saying is that Infidels is not there anymore.

    They installed a audio system that made the ride really suck now.

    Here is what it should like

    I don't get it. Why would the word "Infidels" not be okay to say anymore? This sounds like a bad rumor to me.
