Last I saw, they'd shoved something else in front of it, though, so it was harder to see.

I think what you're referring to is a Marion reference, but not her name per se. On some crates in the unload area and the podium stands that house the Advance Consoles (Unload side of the station) there are a few stickers marked "Raven Bar".

Really? I could have sworn I remember actually seeing her name on it. This was probably about 6-7 years ago that I first noticed it. I always thought it was easiest to spot when you first come into view of the station. Go through the queue's office, then look to the left, on the unload platform, just as the queue does a 180 and heads for the stairs. (If I recall, the crate was on the elevator end of the station, as opposed to where the cars leave station) It was one of the crates there. I wanted to get a picture of it back when I was a freshman in college, but never did. I remember thinking it was odd that her name was so prominent on a crate considering that TOFE takes place before Raiders.

Maybe you mistook it for the Abner Ravenwood references.

We have a few of those. There are those telegrams next to Indy's Office, plus I believe there's a crate that says 'Ship to Abner Ravenwood'.

I know EXACTLY what you mean and unfortunately have never gotten direct confirmation of what exactly it is. I remember I heard a rumor that it was the garbage bins behind the Temple, but that made no sense cause I've walked outside the entire perimeter and never once caught a whiff of it outside.

I'm pretty sure it's just the smoke effects around the Cavern of Bubbling Death that creates that smell; but then again for some reason I kind of like the smell in the way some people enjoy the smell of gasoline.

Most days I really don't even notice it, but that's probably because you get used to it after having to walk through the entire Temple on a regular basis.

Maybe it was there... I remember it being associated with the "Ship to Abner Ravenwood" crate in my mind... I think maybe I'm just going crazy. (I kinda wish now I HAD gotten a picture of it! )

Is that the same smell you get sometimes when you are in the outdoor part of the Pirates queue? 'Cause that's nasty. (And this is coming from someone who spent a long time cleaning up wild animal poo for a living )

Nah, the smell outside Pirates is actually the Anaheim Sewer. The line goes right through that area.

IMHO the smell inside the Temple isn't exactly a bad smell; it's simply unusual.

I arrived then, and we went to Disneyland at 9 am Thursday and stayed til 3, then we took the shuttle from SNA to SFO at 6. I rode Indy at 9 that day and again at ~2:30. That goes a long way towards explaining the fact that I developed a crush on Harrison Ford the next week...though his having four movies in the theatres that week probably also helped.

However, in August 2001, a friend and I went to Disney WORLD and rode the Rock and Roller Coaster (sic) about six times IN A ROW. And I went to another medical conference with my father in Toronto in 2005 and the conference rented out Canada's Wonderland, so I rode Top Gun NINE times in a row.

the ride closes quite frequently. All the vehicles are aligned on the tracks using LIM. (linear industrial magnets)... so if one of them shoots at the wrong time, it shuts all the vehicles down temporaily.

One of the best rides i've ever been on. i LOVE it. Im actually going to disney world in ORLANDO for the first time since i was a child in LESS THAN A MONTH! i'm so excited. I cant wait for the indy action show!

There's a thread over at Micechat discussing the unexpected closure:

It's not permanent, but it seems like there's a possibility it might be prolonged.

I was supposed to work tonights Grad Nite at the Temple, but in the afternoon I was simply informed we were being given the night off. It wasn't until checking the Cast Member Resources that I found an article stating "Indiana Jones? Adventure will be closed to Guests until further notice."

With the Summer Of Hidden Mysteries in full swing, I expect that bringing the Attraction back into normal operation is their main priority right now.

"I'm going to Disneyland!" sometime this August, and this should definitely be running while I'm there.

I think I'll even pick up some Indy merchandise while I'm there.

Sorry, but I'm sure any rumors to update the ride are false.

They did add a show to promote though, I also heard they added Indy twists to The Jungle Cruise.
