    Ride worth waiting for Journey to the Center of the Earth or Indy?

    If you were at Tokyo Disneysea and saw 2 lines that were long for Journey to the center of the earth and Indiana Jones. What ride would you rather go on?

    Journey to the Center of the Earth. No question. Indy is a clone of the Anaheim ride (though not as good in my opinion).

    Journey to the Center of the Earth is unique in the world of Disney rides and it's great great great.

    I happen to like Indy just as much as DL's because it does have a few new surprises along the way, and a nicer look to it overall IMO.. But I would also choose JTTCOTE for being totally unique to this park and not found anywhere else.. But I must ask.. why skip either one? Even on busy days, assuming you do not need to ride TOT.. you can run to 20K, get a FP there, then ride JOTTOTE on stand by, then head to Indy and ride on stand-by.. and by the time you are done with that, your FP for 20K will be up for use. You may even be able to get a FP for TOT after that as well!

    *sigh* i can't believe it's going to be a year since i went to TDS.

    i would go for Journey, that ride is so exciting, i rode it three times when i was there, the wait was never more than 20 minutes. it's one of those attractions that i would have loved to get out and walk around inside the show room b/c everything is so enticing (of course not when the ride is operating).

    i actually like TDS's version of Indy better than DL's. the ride itself, the queue is really cool but DL's feels like you're really heading deep down a temple (even though that's the only way they could get you to the ride). i think the vortex is very appealing, and the lighting is better when you see the crystal skull, the light emitting from its eyes is so intense and makes it that much more believable. mara just has little strobes and smoke which to me was honestly never effective. also, the statue that blows a ring of smoke is so cool compare to the often busted rat projection.

    journey! : )

    Journey to the Center of the Earth--one simple but LARGE reason---the Lava Monster AA is in the top 5 if not the best AA created for a Disney attraction.--imo

    Indy is great. IŽd ride Indy first if I could have them both, since Journey is more thrilling and have that awesome ending that I think Indy lacks...

    IŽd go for Journey anytime if I only could have one!

    Definitely Journey. Indy is great, but Journey is unique and so much fun. We rode Journey 7 times when we were there! But, I don't see why you can't do both. We were able to do just about everything at TDS...many rides multiple times.

    I'd do Journey as well due to its uniqueness & killer themeing and detail. Indy does have a few better scenes than Disneyland, but I still think I'd prefer Disneyland even though each time I've gone on it some aspect of it isn't working properly- Tokyo is great, but driving past the Crystal skull doesn't seem as thrilling as Mara- but the effects are much better in Japan

    Completely agree!

    But the rest of the ride is awesome, too!

    So, by vote (by some margin) is JTTCOTE as well!

    BTW. I did that too before I rode it AND I was STILL blown away!

    That youtube video doesn't do it justice!
