  • [Question] Why is nothing being done to Indy to celebrate Raiders 30th?

    Ok, so next month marks the landmark 30th anniversary of one of the greatest films of all time, Raiders of the Lost Ark. Shouldn't something be done on the ride to commemorate the occasion? I mean if they are not going to take it offline for almost a year for a total redesign like Star Tours, at least they can get all the props and effects working again, right?

    Wow, is it really the 30th anniversary?? Wow, I am getting old lol. I'm even the same age Harrison Ford was when he first played Indy!

    Anyway, sorry, I wouldnt really expect anything. The ride is just based on the Indy universe, not the film itself. When Star Wars turned 30, did they do anything special for ST? So, you can only hope they fix the effects and stuff, but one shouldnt need a major anniversary to do that anyway.

        So if Indy is going to parallel Star Tours, I guess we will have to wait until the 34th anniversary.

          I would love this. A TOTAL refresh of the ride would be fantastic. Obviously they can't redesign it, but new scenes would be awesome.

            Actually, your not too off topic. At the end of my original post, I said at the very least they should get all the props and effects working again, so I guess that would be a refurb.

              They just added the Indy Animatronic's a year ago.....just saying its not like the ride has not been touched in years. My guess is maybe some new Merchandise in adventure land for his 30th (pins and toys and T shirts) but lets be honest here the Indy movies are not "profitable" as a new Pirates movie so the ride its self wont get an update like How Pirates got Black Beard for the summer.
              Happy Halloween!!!

                Yup. What they need to do is get a new and much better working effect for the rat scene

                    That may be true, but the ride needs more than just new Indy AA's.

                    They need to fix the effects in the Queue

                    Add new or better effects and fix the ones that dont work and upgrade them if possible upgrade them

                    Upgrade the EMV's so they dont break down as often

                    Fix the headlights

                    Fix the Chamber of Destiny

                    Fix the soundtrack so it doesnt skip

                    Give the snake more movement.

                      Actually, if you compare box office numbers, even the poorly received Indy 4 has made almost 800 million worldwide. Compare that to pirates 4 which is at just over 500 million.

                        Pirates are cool, but that just goes to show you that Dr. Jones is just Epic.

                        I mean, how cool would it be to have a part time teacher that goes off on Adventure's fighting bad guys, getting into gun fights with Nazies and almost gets crushed by a boulder and a whole bunch of other stuff? Thats one bad ___ teacher!

                        Ok maybe that was a ignorant/arrogant comment, but still lol.

                          No no no I;m not saying the Indy movies dont make money BUT RIGHT NOW...there is no new movie...or rerelease the movies so there is nothing to make money so for now we'll have to wait another year or two for an upgrade....

                          Especially with the new Projections effect they can add some new life to the ride if they wanted to as they fix the old effects too.
                          Happy Halloween!!!

                            I said it all along... the ride needs a lead-lined fridge!
