  • [Question] Indy "Don't pull the rope" gag missing

    Anyone know what happened to the 'Don't pull rope' gag in the rotunda? Last I went, the rope was gone.

    Hmm, thats weird... maybe it snapped or they are adding some new things to it. People pull on the rope all day so I would guess the mechanism holding it and pulling it would break or need repairs.
    Dude..

      I'm sure it'll be back. Same thing happens to the bamboo pole.

        Just routine repairs most likely. Give it a few weeks at most and it'll be back. Bamboo pole, goat on BTMRR, key-dog on PotC, etc... all of them disappear from time to time for work and repairs.

These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

            I noticed that, too! Everyone kept wondering where it was, or theyd read the sign and say, "what rope?"

              Back on the evening of Friday the 9th the rope was down to one strand. By Saturday it was removed. It'll be back soon, I'm sure.

                I believe it was removed for maintenance during the short refurb where they programmed the jeeps and installed the new Indiana Jones Audio-Animatronic.

                  Yes I noticed it gone as well. Also the spike room seems to work only when it feels like it these days.

                    The spike room works, you just have to hit the pole like a freight train.

                      And it takes time for it to reset. If you see it get tripped right ahead of you, it won't work for you. I think it's about 30-45 seconds before someone can trip it again.

                        In the beg. of Sept it didn't work.

                          ^ Same. It wasn't working for a while before the four day refurb. Then I guess they fixed the sound, because it works now, but the roof doesn't move down anymore. Maybe someone in the room was too tall and set of a sensor or something?

                            Can anyone distinguish what they are saying when you pull on the rope? I never get a chance to stop and listen to what they are saying because usually people are following behind me.

                              It just seems to be a lot of "heys!" and other yelling.

                                "Don't pull on the rope, old chap, I've a frightfully valuable artifact down here. [crash, tinkle tinkle] Oh dear...I had a frightfully valuable artifact down here." Stuff to that effect.

                                  There are numerous sounds. I think there is glass smashing, something falling etc..

                                    Sorry, I was just talking about last weekend, right after the refurb. :blush: I always see a lot of guests trying to get it to work again right away, then they call it broken when it doesn't.

                                      Aw, heck. I wasn't originally going to, but why not? Let's type up the whole list.

                                      Careful! [indistinct] an artifact down here. Now..."Fifty years of sorrow...shall befall the destroyer of this, ah, vessel." [vessel shatters] Oh, no...

                                      Blast it all, don't pull the rope. You don't want to break the - ah - [crash] Oh, dear.

                                      I say, stop mucking about up there! Oh, blast. Not again! Aaahhhhhhhhh! [thump]

                                      Leave off the rope, old chap. Be a good fellow, I've a frightfully valuable artifact down here. [artifact shatter] Oh, no...I
                                      had a frightfully valuable artifact down here.

                                      I say, leave off the rope, old chap! Be a jolly good sport there. Uh oh, oh no, oh, blimey, aagghhhh! [thump]

                                        Wow, I never noticed those lines! They always sound so muffled, and there's always a lot of noise around that area, thanks for that list! I'll have to pay more attention to what they say when it's working again.
