Indiana Jones Adventure in Disneyland is About to Re-Open Better than Ever!
Disneyland park guests it is time to celebrate! Indiana Jones Adventure will officially resume operation on December 8th! The ride has been closed for three months being refurbished.
With the holidays approaching and crowd levels expected to rise, no other attraction at Disneyland Resort is scheduled for closures in December.
The popular ride, Indiana Jones Adventure, opened in 1995 and initially had some problems with more than 300 visitors reporting injuries from the ride within a 3-year period. This current refurbishment had nothing to do with any of these past complaints, instead visitors should expect to see a new mural in the dart room, and the bridges got a new look with ragged planks.
Overall, the ride has undergone “show modifications to enhance lighting, paint, figure animation and other effects,” Kevin Rafferty, a Disneyland Resort Spokesman said.
This attraction is one of the most expensive to maintain at the Disneyland Resort. The ride seats are Jeeplike vehicles, that maneuver through archaeological scenes, in vehicles that weigh 12,800 lbs.
