I've always wanted to go on the Indy ride but never been able to. I, too, have only seen the stunt show in MGM -- Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World. But I saw it twice, once when it first opened in 1990 and again in 2002. I really wanted to be one of the people picked in the audience to be "extras." How cool is that? lol.

I can't wait to see the addition they said they're going to put in it to tie into the new movie... (I think the new addition ties into KOTCS anyway).

I just went to Disneyland in Anaheim yesterday (birthday and all). I spoke with some of the cast members and the Temple of the Forbidden Eye will be recieving updates to the ride. Somewhat like Pirates of the Carribean did after the success of the movies. It'll be neat to see the new changes.

Just imagine a really really fast, intense, ToD minecart style indoor rollercoaster w/ all of that new 3d technology they have. I would imagine you could make a sick Indy ride. People who have been on Spiderman 3-D at IOA in Florida will now what I mean. If you haven't been on Spiderman I feel sorry for you, go to Florida and ride it.

I watched TOD the other night and I was thinking just the same thing. An Indy mine cart roller coaster ride. It could pass over lava pits that glow orange and red... then go into corridors that are smoke filled so much so that you can't see anything beyond fuzzy lights in the smoke/steam... It would even be cool if another "car" began to chase you with "bad guys" in it at some point... until "Indy" who is with you on the ride switches the track and they go off into what appeared to be a dead end and you hear "AHhhh.."

Then you could pass through a really dark corridor in the cave and come out into an interior city that is like underground. The storyline could revolve around getting something from that temple... so you go inside slowly now and darts fire over head (or so it seems)... these statues with thier mouthes open breathe open flames or something... ... you pick up more speed and then you arrive at a dead end. Then "Indy" says for everyone to just stay calm while he figures it out... Uh-oh! The way behind us is closed off and the ceiling is starting to close down on us! Yikes!

Right when it seems like your really going to get crushed. Indy says, "I've found some kind of lever... lemme see if I can't..." ... bammm the floor falls out and the track lowers to meet up to another section in the darkness below and you free-fall 100 ft. Ahhhhh!!

When you reach the bottom. You've made it! Indy says that you've found the hidden treasure room. It's filled to the brim with treasures and lined with waterfalls. You slowly ride through it and an actor portraying Indy gets out of the lead car and goes to remove the main treasure. (Yes i'm stealing from Aladdin now) and the place starts to cave in... the exit ahead caves in and you can't go that way on the track so Indy gets in and you start moving backwards... only this time you go through one of the waterfalls and as you are going backwards huge fans blow large gusts of winds your way and it makes cob-webs over head and such blow furiously and freaks you out to boot.

As your going backwards these statues come together like they are going to squish you, but they always just miss you, but since your backwards you can see them closing together as you travel through.... and then you finally come out of the temple area... back into the cave area and back out into daylight...

... or something like that. Either way it's fun to imagine!

I live in Florida but have been to Disney land in California several times. Temple of the forbidden eye has got to be my all time favorite Disney ride.
There have been rumors that a new Indy attraction is in the works for one of the Disney parks in Orlando , unfortunately I doubt they will ever build a replica of the forbidden eye / crystal skull ride in Orlando because Disneys Animal Kingdom already has their own version of that ride called Dinosaur.
It's essentially the same ride only with animatronic dinosaurs in a prehistoric jungle setting instead of Indiana Jones in a temple setting. It's still a kick ass ride though.

I've only been to Euro Disney once, back in 1993. Unfortunately they were still in the process of building the ride.

Forbidden Eye is my favorite ride at Disneyland (naturally, since I'm a big Indy fan). I've been on it countless times, the first just within a few months of opening when they were still handing out decoder codes to translate all the Maraglyps while you waited in line. I've still got about a half-dozen codes somewhere, too.

I only wish they could have used Harrison Ford's likeness and voice for the Indy figures.

No, the real story is that Disney had a choice: He'd do an ad for the Super Bowl, or he'd do the lines for the ride. He couldn't do both. Disney (in their wisdom) choose the ad.


I'm sure WDI wasn't happy with the higher-ups who made that choice.

I remember those! Those were fun to do when the ride first opened. The line is kind of running down though, the bamboo stick in the spike room is gone

Found these notes on the net way back, and put them in what I believe is chronological order.
More Abner Ravenwood sightings!

INDIANA JONES & THE FORBIDDEN EYE
Notes on Maps, Rubbings and Drawings:

Temple of the forbidden eye, Lost delta region, India. Discovered by Dr. Indiana
Jones Circa 1935 - Flood debris. It is theorized that the temple was buried in a
flood over 2000 years ago. Much of the temple, however, was built in underground
chambers.

Letters and telegrams in notebook and inside and on wall beside Indy's office:

June 4, 1935
Indy,
Greetings old friend. Here is the missing piece of the temple map! Fortune truly
shines on the pure of heart! (and he who has a brother-in-law in the black
market!) God go with you and I will join you as well.
Sallah

Indy,
So you have found the mysterious temple of the forbidden eye! Congratulations!
But please proceed with caution. Sources in Calcutta tell me this temple of
yours has a darker side. Legend has it that Pilgrims who were lured there with
promises of great gifts were never seen again!
Yours truly,
Abner Ravenwood

Indiana, I concur with your findings.
Visitors were lured to the temple with the promises of gifts,
but once they looked into the eyes of the god they were doomed.
I believe you can gain access to the inner temple
if you avoid this trap!
Good Luck

Marcus Brody informed us that you have located the temple. We are anxiously
awaiting reports. By the way, an old friend of yours-a Dr. Beloq-called and I
passed along your whereabouts to him. I believe he wants to join you at the
site:
Best of Luck.

Dear Indy,
Received the rubbings yesterday. Pictographs tell of gifts -- eternal beauty,
riches, et cetera. But warning in the lower left was added at a much later
date. Something about eyes and death. I can't quite make it out. I'm still
working on it.

Sallah,
Rotten luck Reports of "Temple of the Forbidden Eye" have hit the newspapers and
newsreels. It's shaping up to be the biggest thing since Santa Claus. Counting
on you to control the feeding frenzy until I return. Have deciphered a new map
that may lead to the power source of the temple. I intend to try. Watch out for
that snake Belloq!
Indiana

Sallah,
Today I'm trying out the hidden passage we talked about. I'm convinced it leads
to the "Jewel of Power." I know you wanted to go with me but I need you out here
to keep the tourists in line. If one of them decides to go eyeball to eyeball
with the god, its adios amigo.

are doing a smashing job getting the tourists through unharmed.

Learned of the news of Indy's disappearance. Study all references to the "gates
of doom." They seem to guard the "Jewel of Power" perhaps Indy made it past the
lethal force of that trap then he would have found the immense cavern where the
Jewel is stored.

Gotta love that ride. I wish I lived in California so I could go there all the time. One of the few times where waiting on the line is more fun than some entire attractions.

If I recall, Marion's name makes an appearance as well. I believe her name is on a crate in the station area. It's been a couple of years since I've been on it, but I think it was on the unload platform on the left side (when you're facing the same direction as the vehicles). Last I saw, they'd shoved something else in front of it, though, so it was harder to see.

I know I'm bringing back an old thread, but I managed to ride this twice within six hours in March 1997, and obviously I absolutely loved it to be riding something at Disneyland twice in one day.

Definitely a must see ride. I had the opportunity to ride it back in July last year and I thoroughly enjoyed it! I'm used to the stunt show in Orlando and this is ten times better. I really wish something like this could make its way down to the Studios. Maybe one day. We shall see.

Until then, I need to find an excuse to head back out to Anaheim.

I think the most I've ridden it during one visit was 6-7 times. But of course, it helps when you stay at Disneyland all day long from opening to closing, and during the off-season when crowds and lines are less.
