User u/MovieFanZ5026 took to Reddit to share his opinion on how Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular, located at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, needs some changes to be made to the show. He comments that the show has been going on for too long and that he would love to see a dark ride like the one at Disneyland, but maybe with a different storyline or a ride that takes Guests through various scenes from the movies in a dark ride setting.

Disney Fans were quick to share their responses, like u/SUPRA239, who commented they’d prefer to see an updated show instead. They comment that it is already a great show that draws big crowds and has a strong nostalgia factor for many Guests and suggest adding new scenes and updated technology to make the show even more exciting.

Redditor u/zombee310 commented that he agrees with the original poster but doesn’t think that Disney would create a new theming inspired by The Temple of Doom (1984) or The Last Crusade (1989) and that no one would like a Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008) theming, but that the upcoming 5th part of Indiana Jones’ story could set up an exciting change for the show or a new attraction.

While these opinions state valid and viable alternatives to update this popular show, Disney has no official plans to modify it in the near future, less so change it for a themed ride. However, this can always change, as Disney Parks are constantly reinventing themselves, looking for innovative and exciting experiences to add to Guests’ enjoyment when visiting the Parks.

One of the most popular rides at Disneyland is also Indiana Jones-themed. Indiana Jones Adventure is a fast-paced, thrilling ride in search of Indiana Jones as he explores the rumbling Temple of the Forbidden Eye. Guests must confront inconceivable dangers, like precarious precipices over molten lava, screaming mummies, swarms of giant insects, spear-throwing wraiths, collapsing bridges, slithering snakes—and a massive rolling boulder.
