    Yeah like it was meant to be. I really cannot believe how Indy is working now with most of its effects working and the thrill of the attraction working perfectly. I truly missed how random the ride was when it first opened and now we have it back.

    I sure hope so, I hate politically correct people. Its the likes of those people that ruin everything else for 99.9 percent of the population. I still have cringes going past the scene they changed on pirates.

    As an ex Indy CM I can tell you with a degree of certainty that yes..the ride was toned down after people filed lawsuits for different things among them shaking brain tumors loose and bumps and bruises. This is why the hand hold on the back of the seats were added shortly after opening day. It appears that the staute of limitations has run out on those law suits and the ride is back to it's formal glory. I'll be there on Memorial Day...oh god help me.

    That is true but I wouldn't quite say it was ultra expensive because I know that Lucas wanted the ride to give the feeling like you were in one of his movies. That is why he had all his artists paint brick by brick and everything else. Disney basically developed the car and the animatronics but everything else was done by Lucas's personal artists. I think that he tried to keep the costs down to invest the money into the ride itself instead of asking for a ton of rights money from Disney.

The ride is over 120 million dollars and that figure seems correct especially Indy was a first of its kind and was designed by Disney. And from what I heard is that they are just as advanced as test tracks cars.

    are they as advanced as Test Track's cars? Cuz those cost $1m each, but they all have massive on-board computers that run everything.

    Yeah, but how much older is Indy? You have to take into the cost that they designed these transports themselved ... that right there would bloat the price im sure.

    BTW does any know how much each Transport cost. Science project :confused:
    The eye always glowed orange, but the whole room was colored blue, purple, and gold. Each transport costs about 1 million each.

    If you are talking about the idle above each of the 3 doors then yes they each light up a different color and they also fixed this effect.

    You know what would take the cake on this ride for upgrades? If they were to fix the ice machine that would be the best gift they could ever give us.

    This is GREAT news. That just made my night, Indy was so toned down that it ruined the ride. I remember the first time I rode it, that wrenching left turn at the begining was so fast and rough, last month it seemed like taking an ordinary left, boring, slow, turn. Once again, this is great news.
