    Yes it will be interesting now that they are updating it the same time the 5th one comes out. I would hope they would add more than a show that’s been around 30 years.

    I think that sounds good. The show could use some updates. I do hope that the stunt performers can keep their roles with the show.

    As long as they don't put in a lame alien storyline I'll be alright with whatever they do.

    We’ll be sure to catch it in July when we go. Glad it’ll still be running!

    I got no problem with it if they are making it a part of the new Indy Land.

    Depending on the changes, they could actually lower their costs per show. Given that, bulldozing it could still happen, but it'd obviously be pushed sometime past the 50th.

    I have seen this show dozens of times and still enjoy it each time. Hopefully this is true and it's sticking around.

    We have always enjoyed the show and look forward to the update. That theater holds a lot of people so I’m disappointed it’s going to be closed for so long.

    They should definitely get rid of Dino Gertie and Min and Bills. I think they should have never even been put into the park. They weren't relevant to people in the late 80's either.

    Who here has ever seen the movie or animated short these are based on? Answer probably no one.

    It doesn't matter if they are relevant. It was part of the old Hollywood theming which is staying.

    You’ve never seen the Gertie animated short? It’s credited as the fist piece of animation and basically critical to the development of the entire industry

    I’d be sad it Gertie left

    Love the stunt show... an update would make it even better. I think this is a no brainer... they fill every show and it deserves some love. Any word on any additional Indy attractions coming to DHS?!

    Gertie is quite a significant figure. How many people that have seen the original film are irrelevant, as it is for most rides. Most people haven’t seen most movies.

    Also I’ve seen it, and I know many others that have as well.

    Whoa, we have found one.

    I'm into old movies and have never seen Min and Bills. 1930 is too old for me, I only watch movies from 1939 on.

    I don't believe it's going to happen, but enclosing the theater with A/C would be fantastic assuming the show changes to accommodate.

    Just as long as there are no flying refrigerators this will be a good thing.

    Nope

    It's cool looking and all, but I don't think it's relevant to most people that go to the park. Especially nowadays where lands will be the common theme for all parks.
