Indiana Jones Adventure
Indiana Jones Adventure is a term indicating several attractions of the parks Disney. The topic is centered on the character of Indiana Jones. But Disney really named only one of various attractions Indiana Jones Adventure that of Disneyland in open California in 1995. It however is called The Temple off the Forbidden Eye .
The topic of Indiana Jones is enough broad to have inspired by other attractions in Imagineers. In France, the Temple of the danger makes it possible to create a Russian mountain in a temple in ruin. The same concept is used for Raging Spirit but by removing the reference to Indiana Jones because of the proximity of the Temple off the Crystal Skull .
Since 1989 in Florida, Disney had used the license and the topics of Indiana Jones in a spectacle of cascades: Indiana Jones Stunt Spectacular.

In order to connect the enormous building containing attraction, placed outside the park, on the other side of the train, a long corridor had to be built between Jungle Cruise and the building of the Pirates of the Caribbean .

DescriptionThe visit begin with an esplanade from statues serpentariae located along the section on the Bengal from Jungle Cruise then the entry from the temple. After the Obelisk of the danger , one crosses the released part of a room to colonnade, which seems to be buried by a landslide. The Avenue of the voices makes it possible to join a transverse corridor indicating that it is not a temple but a whole complex. Along the walls of the inscriptions tell the history of the complex. They are in an alphabet invented by Disney, the Mara . A door makes it possible to enter the Caverne of the bats overhanging catacombs. Just at side the door of the way of return is. The following room is called the Chambre of the spades . It is an old trap supposedly defused by Indiana Jones thanks to giant bamboos. Then the hall of the downward blocks is another trap with blocks of stone which can fall from the plafond.
The two ways of going and return meet again in the Rotonde of the Calendar which is a solar calendar. In lower part a room of sacrifice seems to be connected to the catacombs. On the right a corridor called Altar of the stone shelves makes it possible to join the following room. On the left a hall is planned for the storage of rolling stock.
In the Hall of the promises , transformed into warehouses, one embarks aboard jeep. Attraction is then modular and has three different courses: The Fountain of eternal Youth , the Room of the terrestrial richnesses , the Observatory of the Future . After a choice in the Room of the destiny , the vehicle borrows a corridor ( three actually ) which promises is youth, happiness or the future until the Idole of Mara which keeps secret the entry of each room.
After being gotten out of the jeep, one borrows the corridors in the other direction or of the parallel corridors to the entry of the temple.
The Temple off the Skull HookTaking again the topic of the Temple off the Forbidden Eye , this attraction opened at the same time as the park Tokyo DisneySea in 2001 is located in the country named Lost River Delta. The frontage and the external topic are different from the attraction of Disneyland. Thus the queue is less long and consists only of one INCA temple partly in ruin. The interior of the queue points out the sacrifices incas, but the room of the spades was not forgotten.
It seems that only the course on the Fontaine of Youth exists in this attraction and not three different courses as with Disneyland. The idol of Mara was replaced by a crystal cranium from where the name of attraction.
At the exit a shop of photograph and right at side a restaurant accommodate the visitors. But with the difference of Disneyland, the building was thématisé and continues the temple (even if historically no INCA temple were found with a so large coupled building).
