Disniacs, get ready. An old Indiana Jones Adventure has returned to Disneyland, and you can join on the fun right from your phone. “Indiana Jones Adventure – The Gifts of Mara,” is now the latest addition to the interactive magic found on the Play Disney Parks App.

When the Indiana Jones Adventure attraction opened at Adventureland in 1995, Disney gave us a new interactive way to distract ourselves from the long wait times. Guests might remember being given a decoder and deciphering the “Mara-glyphs” written on the ruin walls you walked past. You were no longer in line. You were already immersed in the attraction–on the expedition–making your way deeper into the Temple of the Forbidden Eye.

Well, this game is no longer another relic of the past. The decoder has been rediscovered! This time, it’s digital and available on the Play Disney Parks App.

New Adventure Details

Once again, guests will be able to decipher the markings on the walls and discover Mara’s secrets, but somethings will be different.

According to Disney:

“As guests explore this game within the app, they will be able to once again decode the ancient glyphs, along with some new symbols and codes that have been added throughout the queue, to piece together the legends of Mara. Each translated code will reveal a single portion of a map. Guests can complete the maps to receive digital achievements, and finish a set in order to piece together a special message from Mara herself.”

This game is the latest of many interactive experiences for Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World returning or beginning on the new Play Disney Parks App. One new favorite is the Star Wars Data Pad, which is playable within Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. EPCOT’s World Showcase scavenger hunt will also be available on the app with a brand new DuckTales theme.
