  • [Rumor] Indiana Jones Adventure Major Refurbishment in 2010?

    We all know that the Indiana Jones Adventure has been running in operation without a major refurbishment. Since the attraction was build to have less refurbishments that way. Now it definitely needs one! The ride has been run to the ground without any major fixes to the ride system and effects. Early in the morning and late at night, Indiana Jones Adventure has known to have preventive maintainances made by Disney mechanics after the ride's normal operating hours from the park. So, the attraction will have less break downs then frequent break downs. Every night, custodians will clean up the ride's track and leaked hydraulic oil.

    A lot of things in Indy requires clean up, touch ups, fix some lightning, fix all the missing or major effects throughout the ride. Reconfigure the EMV's random movements again. Because when the ride first came out, it has all those famous 160,000 random combination, now some of the combination are gone.

    Disney imagineers and mechanics have been complaining that Indy really needs a major overhaul and many new replacement parts to fix the ride and make up to 1995 quality again with new effects or even new scene that won't take away the charm of the attraction. Like the dark Rat Room for example. Instead of a empty black space with just a glowing long vine in the middle with just a projection. That part could add a scene with new special effects with the jeep still stalling at that area! Think of the Ideas!

    A major refurbishment and overhaul of the attraction will make Indy more awesome again! Like back in 1995, with the Jeep being very rough and bumpy, like you have to hold on for dear life! To keep cool with the intense movements, you really should move your body around and head up and down. So, you won't suffer a neck ache or headache after riding it. You have to react with the ride's movements to make your experience even more enjoyable!! Think of the major refurbishment of Indy next year!

    I do hope there is a major/large refurbishment for Indiana Jones Adventure next year. Because Disney knows it needs a big overhaul. On off-season, when the park closes pretty early. Maybe early 2010 or mid 2010 for the refurbishment. The imagineers and mechanics at Disney demands one, because the complex needs one. It needs a fix! It if it broken, fix it!

    I am looking forward for one. So, it will have less break downs for today's technology, if they do a major overhaul to the ride system.

    I had heard Indy was going down for refurb, but only for a few months; time enough to clean up the ride, but probably not long enough to add anything major.

      There was a major 2+ month refurbishment just before Disneyland's 50th Anniversary that addressed and restored many faulty effects, added safety features (such as the new air gates and safety film), restored the rotunda, and added digital projectors where necessary. They even fixed some of the effects in the queue.

      The effects worked extremely smooth after this refurb and was much needed. I believe they got all but one fire effect working perfectly, and of course smoke to come out of both of Mara's eyes.

      How come so many people forget this refurbishment? However, this is not to say it is time for another refurb. I just don't think it has to be as large as the one 5 years ago.

        I think nest year would be a great year to fix up the ride, since we are getting no major ride added next year to either park.
        We do have the Wonderful World of Color which will be great but if they closed Indy from January to the summer and fixed it up (with some new Indy AI's too) that would be amazing.
        Happy Halloween!!!

          I believe in that refurb, they put a new snake as well.

            A refurbishment would be great. It would be cool if they did something else for the dark room. I haven't been on the Tokyo one but I liked the fireballs being blown at the jeep more than just having a vine in the middle of the scene like in the LA one. A new snake would definitely be cool as well.

                  I went on it in 2006 and again this year during the D23 Expo. Definitely not as great as it was on my first visit. Some refurb should be nice.

                      I wish the single rider line was more convenient, but there's no real way to fix that without major construction, I suppose. Going through the exit against the traffic, taking an elevator up, then another elevator down, then waiting in line isn't really the best.

                        It would be nice if there were an overhaul of the entire attraction, more than just a refurb to fix all of the effects. Imagine if part of the ride actually took you outdoors and intersected with The Jungle Cruise...like the original designs. I'm not sure how possible this would be, considering the orientation of the IJA show building with Jungle, but it would certainly breathe new life into the attraction.

                          ^that would be cool and then Indy would also be a ride that had night and day in it (which is good for an attraction because you want to go on it at least twice in one day)
                          And I know people say we have a new snake, we'll we need a NEWER ONE, If Bob (Space mountain) has proven anything its that people like rides it be scarier not cartoonie, also it would be cool to see one slither towards you and attack.

                          Along with new Indy's (with new dialog too(, a new effect for the "rat room", and returning alot of the other effects and of course making the opening doors cooler than Indy will feel like a new ride and make the lines even bigger.
                          Happy Halloween!!!

                            According to a cast member I talked to a couple of months ago, the imagineers were going to change out the Indy AA's for new ones like the Jack Sparrow AA's in Pirates to be more real and life-like. Don't know if this is true but wanted to share what I heard.

                                Indy goes down for refurbs all the time though.. And some of them have been pretty long. Maybe they don't address the particular things that certain people want addressed every time but the attraction is well maintained I think, even if towards the end of each run it starts feeling like a little let down... It sounds like you don't want a refurb you want a redesign.

                                It just seems that somebody is always bringing up that Indy is in need of a major refurb and hasn't had one since some time ago like the 2005 one, then it gets another one, but then when it needs another they say again that it hasn't had one since the much earlier date.

                                  This has probably been mentioned before.

                                  Originally, in the rat projection room. The jeep transport vehicles where to have the HISTA effect of the mice running through the audience. But this was cut due to the expense of installing the units in the vehicles.

                                  But that's why it seems blah through that section of the ride.

                                    I saw that Indy was down for a small refurb right now and quietly cheered. The last two times I've rode, I missed the fire effects in the giant center skull SO MUCH! I agree that it needs some more significant TLC in the near future.

                                      New Snake or snake room effects.
                                      I know that snake is fairly impressive, but somehow they can think of something better. I just know it.

                                      Put a Bug's Life effect literally in the car.
