||If it's not the most popular
attraction at the Disney Studios it comes a close second -
don't miss it.
The Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular is
one of the most popular attractions at the Disney MGM Studios,
and is held in a 2,000 seat amphitheatre, so even though there
may seem to be large queues, there's usually little problem in
getting a seat.
The show takes place on a movie set supposedly being
used to film one of the Indie movies. During the performance,
stunt men and women recreate scenes from the movie, along side
earthquakes, explosions, and other assorted special effects, to
give an insight into how some of the stunts are achieved.
The show, which lasts for 30 minutes, also has an audience-participation
component, with several members of the audience being selected
to take part in some of the stunt sequences.
Some of the classic scenes include the temple scene
from Raiders of the Lost Ark where Indiana Jones defies
various traps to finally retrieve the Idol, only to be confronted
by a 12-foot rolling stone ball. A scene from a Cairo street market
is one of the audience participation scenes, where a mock fight
breaks out as Indiana Jones attempts to escape pursuers.
The climax to the show features a scene where Jones
destroys a plane and fuel dump, in a ball of fire, the heat from
which can easily be felt by most of the audience.
Overall one of the more popular performances at the
MGM Studios, and definitely one to see.
