  • Indy Queue Enhancements

    With all the talk of Indy ride enhancements I thought I would toss in some queue enhancements. The majority of these would be easily accomplished however some of this would require significant time to install.

    Misters in the outside queue. Simple, clean, can make a hot day so much nicer. Put them in the Snake Columns and have them spray upwards, causing a "rainforest" effect. IF maintained it would be a nice and welcome enhancement.

    LED's in the generator- this would add to the theme of the digs having questionable power, especially if it "sparked".

    Secret in the Oblesik- this would require sequential sensors. When you trip the right combination of spots at the same time (multiple people standing in certain spots in the room) a light shines down through the burnt hole in the ceiling and a secret combination of glyphs appear on the Oblesik, led's shining from the inside outwards!

    Darn Bats- Place air cannons out of sight and a random timer would send blasts of air down along with the chirping sound of the bats themselves. This could also be timed for either isolated "attacks" or a full room surprise.

    The Falling Columns- right after the spike room they have a series of stone columns that are propped up and wedged into the ceiling. Again sequential sensors but this would be a combination setup, think 1, 2, 3, 4. When you step in the right spots sequentially, air would blast through the wedged stones and the thundering sound of the collapsing columns would travel through surround sound speakers as if they were falling in order from back to front.

    A proper Goodbye- re-create part of the dart room at the exit, just past Bamboo Canyon and right before you enter the cave portion (think where the old AT&T sign used to be). This could be as simple as a timed beam, break the beam and in 5 seconds air "darts" are shooting out randomly. They would also be able to use the entire wall and stagger the height of the cannon placements from the ankles to the heads.

    Just a couple thoughts.

    Would cost a lot also....It's just a queue.

    it's what they are like in their HEART!

      That will scare the kids really good. I like the Secret in the Oblesik idea, but it will slow the line down in some areas because of scared guests or guests who play with the effects, remember the well.

      Jungle cruise the movie in 2009 ?????

        It would never have worked with the old line configuration but now they do that stupid pulse for Fast Pass... this would liven it up a little! Also with the combination of random timing and pinpoint sequential placement, it would take a while for people to "learn" how to do some of it.

          misters in the outside queue. Sounds great during summer until they break and here comes the rain.

            That is why I said "IF maintained" also it would give the Jungle Cruise rainforest more importance because they would be maintaining misters in the same area.

              I like some of the ideas, but if they would plus the quee they would probably only do one or two of those things.

                I like the ideas. (Especially the misters!!) But i think that some of the scary items wouldn't be good to put in. I remember having a heart attack the first time I went through the queue and somebody set off the spike room right behind me. We wouldn't want to make it "too" scary.

                            I love the ideas....

                            I've always wanted to see actual flames in the torches outside the temple enterance...maybe coordinate them with the shining light in the obelisk room. The Temple "comes to life" when someone hits the right sequence in the temple.

                              Maybe Califia doesn't like you.
