    Sad Indiana Jones Stunt Spectacular Closing?

    R.I.P. Disney's "Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular!" Attraction

    Found this article as I was browsing through the internet and it appears that if the rumors are true, that the show will be closed to make way for an expansion of the Star Wars area of the park, which is unfortunate because I've loved that show since I was a kid and it has been a staple for the park since its grand opening.

    Has anyone heard anything regarding the closure of the show?

    We have been discussing this on another thread. It seems as if it will probably close towards the end of this year to make way for Star Wars Land, which will open in 2018.

    ORDDU: My sisters and I won't miss the stunt show if it goes away because it has become stale to us. We only see it if we're with others who want to go. Otherwise we bypass it. Since it's been long rumored that Star Wars Land is coming to DHS, we won't be surprised to see this happen.

    Unfortunate, but I heard it had a history of pretty bad injuries because of it.

    I wouldnt mind for it to make way for a possible IJA at WDW
    There is no right or wrong in this debate. It is simply a matter of perspective.

    I really hate to see it go because I absolutely loved it the one and only time I've seen it and RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK is my favorite movie. But if they are really going to build Star Wars Land (and everything sure points to yes) then building around Star Tours makes the most sense.

    For what it's worth, a tweet from WDW News Today, claims management confirmed with the cast that Indy is NOT closing.

    This is part of the reason it is closing. If you look up the list of cast member injuries at WDW, many of them have come from this show, and, I may be wrong, but at least one of the injuries was fatal.

    If there are direct reports to the contrary coming from WDW why would we continue down this path? if they were planning on closing the ride they wouldn't go out of their way to say that they are not.

    A person on a facebook page had a pic of the rolling boulder on the back of a truck, heading towards the storage facility.

    ORDDU: Yes there WAS a fatality associated with the Indiana Jones stunt show a few years ago. A young man newly hired for it was killed during a stunt. There was another performer killed at the Magic Kingdom close this same time period when he slipped and fell during the Capt. Jack Sparrow skit. That was a very sad time for the parks when two different cast members were killed so close together.

    Great pic. I guess you mean this proof the show is ending. Means absolutely nothing considering that the show is still showing WITH giant rolling boulder so who know what is really going on in that picture. I am with goofy donald, Disney has seem to clearify that it is only American Idol closing.

    Indy lives on for now.

    Are you saying that Disney never denies rumors it doesn't want the public to know? The potential closing date is so far away that Disney wouldn't announce it until at least Oct.

    It wasn't Disney telling the public Indy is not closing. It was managers reassuring their Cast the show wasn't closing. Why give fair warning to the AI crew but just mess around with the Indy folks?
