Indiana Jones Adventure, Disney

Disneyland has announced that the iconic 'Indiana Jones Adventure' at Disneyland Park is scheduled to get an extensive refurbishment, meaning it will close on January 9 and won't reopen until Spring 2023. It has become more and more obvious, in recent months, from reports online regarding broken animatronics and ride break downs that this extensive refurbishment is needed.

'Indiana Jones Adventure' closed for a very brief refurbishment from November 14 - 16. We are hoping the closure beginning January 9 will bring a very thorough 'Return of the Mummy' style make over to restore  'Indiana Jones Adventure' to its original glory.

'Indiana Jones Adventure' is a dark ride affixed to a motion simulator base, the Indiana Jones Adventure carries guests into the darkness of the Temple of the Forbidden Eye, an ancient lost Bengalese temple that has become the new vacation hotspot for would-be adventurers in 1935.

Inside, rumor has it that the ancient god Mara promises to grant one of three gifts to any who enter his Hall of Promise: eternal youth, earthly riches, or visions of the future. But legend also speaks of a curse: whosoever looks into the corroded and dark eye of Mara will be sent to the Gates of Doom.

Riding in jeeps holding sixteen passengers, guests on the Indiana Jones Adventure come face-to-face with skeletons, lava, giant snakes, rats, a giant rolling boulder, and the disfigured god himself via a number of special effects and the motion-base EMV (enhanced motion vehicle) that simulates rough terrain, quick turns, and quick acceleration.

We will keep you updated on further details regarding the proposed Spring reopening date of 'Indiana Jones Adventure' at Disneyland Park when they are announced on our news and Facebook page.



Number 1 on the list: Pay Harrison Ford to voice the character on the ride. The actor they hired doesn’t sound anything like the character and it’s noticeable. Mr. Ford isn’t getting any younger!

Very sad IJA is in awful shape
