Attraction


Concealed in the deepest jungles of Adventureland explorers have uncovered the remains of a decaying structure. This old temple was once a grand monument, but the passage of time has caused its once sculpted features to become weathered and aged.

The god which once was woreshipped here still casts his shadow - the archeologists camp lies deserted in the jungle and the screams of the brave adventurers who enter the temple following Indiana Jones show other guests the way...

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Peril - Backwards is a high-speed roller coaster with sudden turns and drops including a looping which guests experience, and this makes it unique, backwards.

Through the queuing area guests wander around the pathways surrounding the temple. Here they can explore the camp in which the archaeologist who have been studying the temple are living. Amongst the equipment and tents several recently discovered artefacts lay on tables awaiting inspection.

As guests draw nearer to the temple itself they can see the scaffolding which has been erected around the structure to aid the inspection of its walls. Weaving through the scaffolding, mine cars run to carry discoveries (and explorers) around the site.

Guests board one of these mine cars for a whirlwind spin around the ruins of the mysterious temple. Each car holds 12 intrepid guests who begin by climbing backwards to the highest point of the tracks where they are offered a view of the whole of the park and onward towards the resort area and hotels. The pace then speeds up taking them around hair pin turns and drops surrounding the temple, before the climax of the attraction a complete 360 degree gravity defying loop followed by a high speed return to the loading point.

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Peril opened during 1993 in response to the overwhelming popularity of Disney coasters (Big Thunder Mountain was only one in the park on opening day).

During winter 1999 through to March 2000 the ride underwent some major changes which included a capacity increase by 50% for each train and the addition of an extra train. But most significant of all the changes is the reversal of the ride cars which now run the entire ride backwards. The result is an altogether, new ride experience. One that is really unique for Disney, as Indiana Jones is the only backwards running roller coasters in all Disney Themeparks.

Especially at night, Indiana Jones offers you a great view and very atmospheric view over the park.

The effects and especially the looping are most intensive and thrilling if you sit in the last rows in the train, meaning those seats that have an unblocked view of the track the train just past along.

This attraction is FastPass-enabled, which allows the reservation of the ride-time well in advance. More information about this free service can be found here.

The construction of the second rollercoaster of the Disneyland Park was aided by Esso, which is the sponsor of this attraction since its opening.
