Indiana Jones Adventure at DLR is a GREAT ride!

I agree 100% the the Indiana Jones ride at DL is awesome and should come to WDW. I was so surprised by how great that ride was the last time I was in California. It would make a great addition to HS.

The one time I went to DL, this ride was a standout. I've heard rumors that it's the same track as Dinosaur, but to me Indiana Jones is much more appealing and the ride seems completely different thanks to the theming. I'd love this ride to come to HS!!

No question DHS needs help. Really hoping it's something unique...like Star Wars...rather than cloned CarsLand. I already spend a week at DL every year. More attraction copies does nothing to encourage additional visits to WDW.

Ok...it hasn't been mentioned here yet so i'll bite:

there is no sense in putting the IJA in Florida for two reasons:

1. The ride opened in what?...1995? To clone a thrill element like tower or splash mountain seems to make more sense because there is physics in play...i just don't see the appeal from disney's perspective to clone a simulator type ride thats 15-20 years old...except perhaps in "new" parks such as in China.
2. As has been stated/documented many times...CTX (dinosaur for the non-believers) and IJA are the exact same ride. As in the ride system and the track layout are EXACTLY the same. so while dumbo and magic carpets are clones for relatively little price...to clone IJA and have basically two clones at $100 million dollars each doesn't really make any sense.

Hmm...now, if they wiped out Dinoland, including Chester and Hester, turned Dinosaur into IJA, and made the whole area an archaeology dig site theme, I'd get on board with that...

IJESS isn't big enough for CarsLand, but Backlot/LMA might be - I hope the layout is good enough to do it right.

Now, if they were going to do Star Wars Land, that could potentially take out IJESS and the Backlot Express...

A CM at the Disney Visa Meet in Epcot last week said that Lights, Motor Action would go, but it wouldn't be a full Cars land. He seemed to think it'd be just the racecar ride.

(Obviously I put no more faith in this than any other rumor, but there it is).

PPs have made very good points about the studios needing some work. I've never really thought about it until now but everyone is right- its quite dated. Though I'm pretty partial to BLT (am I the only one?! ) I think some change would be good.

I don't know if I think replicating CL so close to its opening in DL is a great idea though. Where's all the fresh ideas? RNR and ToT were great additions because Disney put a new spin on a classic ride idea. Why can't they do that again? Everyone seems to be talking about copying things from the other coast when really I think its time for something new all together!

I have read all the things they dislike about DHS,what they would add or take away. How long It takes or does not take to see the park. Really all good points, but its just my oppion, but I love DHS just the way It Is,if they add something great, but really what makes everyone want to change It is the reason I like It. I go to DHS as many times as I can on each trip, the only reason I dont stay longer Is I park hop. Now should everyone do a about face and say "your right DHS is fine just the way It Is", no. I just feel sometimes we pass over the same old thing to quickly and for get about the funny quirks DHS has to offer,,,just saying.

Interestingly, I've heard little-to-none about keeping the Backlot tour (at least as it is), and not a lot for LMA...people are far more adamant about keeping the rest (except for the BAH... )

One would think if there is a Cars related re-theme, that LMA could be re-themed with similar content, making it cost effective. There is enough content with Mater's tall tales, and cars related books to make a suitable story with the current venue, and a re-skinning of the stunt cars. Relatively speaking that would be a cheap addition, and something unique to a Florida version of cars land.

This doesn't really make a whole lot of sense. Since Disney bought LucasFilm, you'd think if anything they would expand the Star Wars theme into that area.

Redoing LMA for Mater's Tall Tales would be really awesome, but it wouldn't happen. I can't imagine realistic looking skins on those cars would last long. It is already supposedly an expensive show to run, doing this would make it even more expensive.

I hope they replace the stunt show or backlot tour. The back lot tour is just so blah and dated. That would be nice. HS is my least fav park even though I love ToT.
