This is the worst, most
painful, dull, lacklustre and did I mention painful? roller coaster ever
made and should be avoided-or demolished. How could Disney - D I S N E Y
do this to helpless young families looking for a good time. And now it's
turned to a backwards coaster, it's truly terrible!
My head was splitting
because those stupid concrete restraints and my hip were black and blue.
We also queued for nearly an hour and for what? If I wanted a beating, I
would have asked Sharon for a slap.
So, to summarise it all up
- DON'T GO ON IJ -IT SUCKS!
Come on everyone stop taking this small ride so
seriously. It was never meant to be a top class thriller.
I think Disney get so excited about this ride because
they have the ability to change the ride experience. They have already
had it going forwards, then going backwards with 6 seater trains and
just recently they have it travelling forwards again.
The only bad point that I can say about this
ride is that when they changed the trains forwards again it lost the
experience a bit. I mean when it travelled backwards the first drop gave
the small tummy turn experience. Now it travels forwards it has made the
drop seem both small and boring. Also it is a much more unpleasant
experience in the form of head banging. I think they could have worked
on the restraints a little!
I don't know why everyone
hates this ride so much. I went on it 3 times at Disney and thought it
was great. I've only ever ridden it backwards. I would have liked it to
have been a bit faster, though.
This ride was completely
ruined when they turned it backwards. Nauseating and like having your
head pounded for a minute and a half. Thank goodness it has turned back
round the right way. I rode it like this years ago and it is a good
ride... at least you can prepare you head for the pounding as you know
what is coming up.
It is hardly Disney
is it? It is very similar to Klonedike at Drayton Manor, and whilst the
theming is better than Draytons, it is still very poor for Disney.
At first I didn't
think it was too bad, and then I rode Space Mountain, Pirates of the Caribbean,
Thunder Mountain... it then becomes apparent that it is just a poor
ride, one to fill a gap and one that has been rushed. It is a shame, it
would have been a good opportunity and I am disappointed that Disney
continue to market this ride as if they're proud of it or something!
Ouch! And that was FORWARDS!
Score - Zero!
what can you say? From the minute you get on board it, you know you've
made a mistake. As you go up the lift hill it's not too bad, it's when
you go round the ride... it's like being in a car with no suspension!
Say no more, but Disney, what have you done? Look at space mountain
etc., they're great.
of the most painful rides I have ever ridden - a brilliant idea for a
ride executed in a very poor manner. Incomparable to the phenomenal
Indiana Jones and the Forbidden Eye at Disneyland in Anahiem.
rides suits perfectly in the Adventureland area. It has a great themed
queueline, very good theming on-ride and some nice effects. But the ride
itself Ė hmmm Ė itís not the average rough ride. Itís just THE
rough ride. The coaster is smooth until after the loop. Then itís just
awful... I rode it forwards and backwards, doesnít matter, same
effects... but you just have some more wildness thrown in

This ride is excellent because it
goes backwards. It gives you all the thrills you want
...and some you don't.
Indiana Jones has been
well themed. As you get in the queue its not long before you board the
train. You sit in the seat and pull over the shoulder restraint. All you
have to do now is sit back and wait until you are set off in to the
rocky wilderness backwards as well as going down steep hills backwards
as well as tight corners until you get to the best bit. THE LOOP! When
you go into the loop your head does bang about a bit so watch your head.
You then go round and down a few hills and corners and brought to a halt
and back at were you started off.

All you lot are doing is
comparing it to other coasters. It can't be-it's different. This roller
coaster is fun and intense, and deserves a good four stars. It's just as
good as space mountain, because you have no idea what's coming and you
do the loop backwards, which totally makes up for the bumps, which
aren't really that bad anyway. When I went on it, I liked it so much
that I went on it again. And again. Superb novel ride.
I rode it a few days ago,
and think that it has improved recently. It didn't seem as bad as I
remembered it. Odd!
Oh my days... What have
Disney Done turning the cars to backwards... The ride was fantastic
Forwards but now it is backwards, its just a turbulent puke machine!
Indiana Jones isn't really a Disney
ride in the same sense as Big Thunder Mountain. Nor is it a kids ride -
two big factors when you consider its Disney.
It also does not really give much of a
thrill - no big drops where your stomach makes that weird 'o crap'
sensation. Instead, its a high G-Force ride, with an incredibly fast
looping, made faster by the fact its tiny. It also has tons of round and
round bits (helixes) and for most, there stomach can't take this. For
me, this was great.
Though Indiana Jones does have faults,
its more than makes up for it on the ride. One last thing - the
roughness adds to the ride!
Indiana Jones - The Temple of Slurred Speech!
When you think of stupid things to do,
what things might come across your mind? Crime, boxing, train riding (on
the outside!), riding Goudurix...and Indiana Jones!?
Ok so its not quite in the same league
as Goudurix from what I've heard, but I shouldn't think its that far
off. This ride really has got to be one of the roughest rides around,
which for any park is bad, but for Disneyland Paris, it's even worse.
Theming on this ride doesn't really
improve things much. It seems that when turning the trains backwards,
somebody forgot that money would have to be spent theming the other side
of objects, as they would now be seen, thus the poor on-ride theming.
And due to the same thing, theming seems quite good from the queue,
which leads you to believe a good ride waiting inside-how wrong could
one person be!
The ride itself is terrible. The mainly
unbanked turns don't work for this ride, and the trains, or more
importantly, the restraints, cause severe headaches, especially on these
turns. When you consider that the train hurtles around the track at
speeds of around 40-45mph (I think!), has unbanked turns, is built by a
rubbish company, has a very poor track design, and goes backwards
(meaning you can't prepare yourself-for hell!), you realise just how
rough this ride is.
This leads me to wonder why DP ever
installed this ride. If they considered the points I just have, they
would not have built it( which leads me on to say, I'm sure they can't
have done!). With two other good and fantastic coasters in the park,
this ride isn't even worth a 0 min queue, as it will prevent you from
having fun for another 2 or so hours.
I have only ever been on one ride
worse-Python at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay.
So in conclusion, don't ride this evil
contraption, as you will come of cursing it and yourself.
