First off, welcome to The Raven indy 123!

I've been on the ride many times and it's definately awesome, to say the least. I especially like the part where the skeleton warriors (or whatever they'e supposed to be) shoot puffs of air and make you think they're shooting darts at you. I also bought one of those hats and it was worth the money. You can't beat an Indy fedora.

Indy ride at Disneyland Anaheim............

I agree, it's awesome!! I loved it the many times I rode it..... (last time was 2003).

It is interesting that you GOT a hat there...'cause I LOST my hat on the Indy ride.

I know I've told this story on the Raven before so I'll keep it short.

Basically, when I got on the ride, the dude told me to take my hat off.......well, ...Monkey doesn't do anything he's told........so of course I kept my (LA Dodger's) ball cap on........well, um, those .......um skeletons, ........yeah, well ....POOF, there goes my hat..........should'a listened ...........

Anyway..........glad you enjoyed the ride.........

Another great Indy attraction is at DisneyWorld in Orlando. They have The Indiana Jones Stunt Spectacular, which is a live-action show that recreates several scenes from Raiders of the Lost Ark. Be sure to see it if you have a chance.

I've heard rumors that they are considering taking the show out and putting the Indy ride in its place, which would be cool too. Check out this picture of the entrance (which is even more impressive in person):

We have a trip to Orlando in the works for late this year. I haven't set foot in Disney World since I was a child. At the time of my attendance, Epcot Center was under construction. (Ouch...what an unpleasant reminder of age that was.) So I've never laid eyes on the Indiana Jones Stunt Spectacular, although all I've ever heard regarding it has been extremely positive. Honestly, as much as I would like to take a ride on the coaster, I'm hoping that the stunt show hangs around long enough for me to get to see it at least once.

ahhh yes the Indy ride, a truly fine experience. I will be there for work on April 4th, I might have to ditch for a few hours and do the ride!


Note: If you are by yourself, you can enter through the exit, they will give you a single rider ticket so you can aviod the crazy line!

This is a great ride!

Waiting in line for the ride is actually a lot of fun (although it can be quite long and therefore I recommend a FastPass if you can get it). The best part is scaring people by setting off the trap in the spike room.

It's great and I remember when they used to hand out de-coding cards that allowed you to be able to read the strange language on the walls. I wish I still had mine but I lost them a long time ago.

Deffinently my all time favorite Disneyland ride. I also bought the Indy fedora but it looks nothing like official one they sell. I customized it to look just like Indy's!

Indy is also featured in a small ride at DisneyWorld as well. There's a ride there called The Great Movie Ride and you basically take a trip through famous movies from history (Singin' In the Rain, Tarzan, Alien, etc.) and Raiders of the Lost Ark is featured on the ride. It's a nice and relaxing ride with neat sets and plenty to look at. Plus, Indy is featured, so you can't go wrong there!

Temple . . .

No not of John, but of the Forbidden eye.

What is the best way to enjoy (slash) make a newbie enjoy?

I have riddenthis over 100 times or way more, and I love it.

How do you enjoy it how to you break in a virgin?

He means the ride, folks.

I don't know, I don't really feel like a newbie to the ride would need much breaking in. I would say that for the full experience you should make sure they move the bamboo pole in the spike room and play with the rope in the main queue room and just generally enjoy the story from the minute you step into the line. And, I suppose, ask if they can be in the driver's seat.

I knew that was the ride but I didn't understand the question. I like the ride but I think it should be faster.

Oh, surely not. You have to be able to see things along the way. It's not a roller coaster, after all.
