  • Indy Queue Question

    OK everybody knows that on a good day, you can push on the bamboo pole and the spikes come down from the ceiling. But I have heard that right after that room, if you step on one of the diamonds on the floor, the big blocks overhead shake (or something like that). Is this true and if so, which diamond is it, or did is used to work when the ride first opened and now no longer works, or is it just a myth?

    Any answers?

    Thanks!

    Never heard of that. All the ones that can fall are "stopped" by wooden stakes.

      The ceiling in that room was planned to have the bricks shake when you stepped on the stones - but it got cut from the budget before completion.

        when it first opened.. like a few month later, i heard rumors of it happening at the very beginning in the first weeks but never got confirmation and don't really believe it.

          They've never done that. I could imagine that it would've been a budget, though.

          It's more fun to pretend that it's a possibility if you have kids behind you.

                I had an AP when the ride opened and rode it about once a week since opening day. Never happened. The ground is solid concrete and the carvings don't appear to be hiding any sensor.

                Cool idea, but kind of impracticle when you think about how slow the que used to be. People would have been just standing on them without notice so those things would have been vibrating around the clock.

                  The diamonds in the floor are just a design... nothing more.

                      I've heard sayings that when you pull on the bamboo pole the "ceiling sinks down 2 inches before resting" or "spikes fall a little". I have personally never seen any of these physical movements happen, the only thing being a loud boom from the audio speakers. Can someone confirm if i'm just unobservant or if i'm correct?

                        This is true but the whole system is very sensitive and only works as a whole on occasions.

                          The ceiling moves down more like 3 - 4 inches IMHO, and the pole bends. The audio is to make what little movement happens seem like a whole lot more.

                          It resets much more slowly than it triggers, so the next batch of people in the queue don't notice it happening if they are walking in there mid-reset.

                          I could be a real geek and bring a measuring tape, and survey the room before and after to see exactly how far it moves at each corner. (Is it true vertical motion, or just hinged at one end?)

                          But One, I'm not THAT big a geek :geek: . And Two, they might not look too kindly upon people whipping out a 30' contractors tape-measure and measuring their ceilings at each corner, calling out the numbers to someone else taking notes, done while the park is open...
