  • Indy in need of Rehab?


  • #2
    I went yesterday and today. The generator was running, and the Spike Room was working as well.

    And what do you mean by "Experiencing the Q"? You mean they miss out on the thrill of going through switchbacks for 30 minutes in front of a temple that they still get to see anyway? Besides, the story starts inside the building, along the route that EVERYBODY has to go through. Fastpass doesn't get to go through the exit of the ride.

    Now we come to the inside of the ride. The falling rats effect is always on. The problem is that they cycle vehicles through that part too fast to give the smoke machine time to recover. I don't know about you, but I'd rather blast through that part and shorten ride times then lengthen the wait just to see some "Rats" fall from a branch.

    The Ghost is not a hologram, but is actually a picture painted on scrim netting. This type of netting allows you to toggle between two separate scenes just by changing the light source.

    Light comes from behind the netting: Back scene is viewable
    Light comes from in front of the netting: Front scene is viewable

    Why try to fix things that aren't broken? Rather, use that money to take out those ugly tarps in POTC. :monkey:

      I've seen the rat effect working several times...I think it's just hit or miss...adds to the variability of the ride If an effect is broken when you visit, that doesn't mean it's always broken. It means they are working on it. The new administration actually maintains the rides.

        I have rode on Indy about 20-30 times. I have seen the rat effect once or twice. Hit or miss? My luck cant be THAT bad

          Last time I went was about two weeks ago and the ride never looked better in my opinion. The only effect that wasn't working was the 3 mummies that come at you on the big hydrolic. The laser effect was working beautifully. If you say that it is in bad repair you must not have seen it before the rehab. Before the rehab nothing worked.

            Actually it is entirely possible. It makes you kinda unlucky, but still possible

                The falling rats is JUST before the dart room. If you notice, its a long dark room and they play a lot of "thud thud" sounds. If you look close, there is a dark black peace of cloth hanging down. Thats where the falling rats are. Well, supposed to be.

                This is how the effect works/looks

                Spoiler
                The effect works like this. A wall of smoke drift's down from the black cloth and images of rats jumping off a tree branch is projected onto the curtin of smoke. Its a GREAT effect and gets people ALL the time.

                  When was it last in rebab? I know they recently got a new snake head (the last one looked like an inflated balloon), but I did not know if went through anything extensive.

                    The snake was replaced last year during a very extensive rehab. It was in desperate need of it at the time, after the rehab everything looked great.

                      hmm.. perhaps they should remove one thing from the ride and offer more loading and find a way to twewek everything to run a bit faster... then there would be no need for FP and everyone can experance the entire queue....

                        The ride was down for 3 months last year.

                          A lot of effects work now that didn't prior to last April. Mara's eye laser works again, and quite a few more things explode now when it strikes them. Didn't they also replace the effect at the bottom of temple and make it look like it is lava.

                            Yes the lava was made to look like it did when the ride opened.

                              As far as I know when they made the ride it was initially supposed to be random like TOT. I think they said something like 600,000 different combinations of things that can happen while you're on the ride. It's never the same ride twice. Everything's working...just not every time. That way when it does, it's a welcome surprise

                                Yea, the lava looks really awsome now. The snake is much better. To tell everyone the truth... (about the projection of the rat) I never had any idea that it was supposed to be a rat. :confused: That part always just felt weird and confusing, though it is still really cool because I always thought the car was about to run into a tree branch. If only they could get the crumbling rocks to work again!!

                                  Probably off topic, but would anyone by any chance have a picture of the new cobra? ^^; I have yet to see it, hehe.

                                  And i'm told that the ride used to have an effect where the laser from mara's eye would hit the ceiling and pieces of it (really ice from an ice machine built into the ceiling of the show building) would fall down...is that true? o_o

                                    That is supposed to be rats? I always thought it was some sort of cob web smoke effect or something. never really understood it.

                                      If you go to www.visionsfantastic.com, click on adventureland, then click on Indi, you should find a video of the snake. It's a really cool video too.

                                        I always thought they should change the projection to cobwebs. If it were cobwebs that would make a lot of sense.
