As I'm thumbing through my copy of The Art of Disneyland today, I came across some early concept artwork by Brian Jowers for the Indiana Jones ride. The painting depicts an interior show ride scene, with the Indy ride vehicles going through a huge room kind of reminiscent of the mine-train scene in Temple of Doom. What blew me away by the painting is that it shows a Jungle Cruise river boat floating through one area, and the Disneyland Railroad going by in the back. It's on page 33 if you have a copy. I'm sure that due to the physical layout of these 3 rides, it would have been impossible to actually make this work, but how cool would it be to have incorporated all three of these great rides into one scene like that! People who are unable to ride Indy (pregnant, back or heart problems) could have gotten in on the fun! It's just an amazing painting and I think from now on I'll probably look at the Indiana Jones ride a little differently. Just wanted to share that. Oh, and if you don't own a copy of The Art of Disneyland, if you like concept artwork at all, get it on your Christmas list ASAP!
