Indiana Jones Adventure Closing For Up To 6 Months For Refurbishment

The Indiana Jones Adventure dark ride in the crumbling Temple of the Forbidden Eye at Disneyland that has been prone to downtime and showing its age in recent years will undergo a comprehensive refurbishment in early 2023.

The Indiana Jones Adventure attraction will be closed from Jan. 9 until spring 2023 for refurbishment and maintenance, according to the Disneyland website.

The Adventureland thrill ride takes daring passengers in a rugged troop transport over rough terrain as they race through a cursed temple filled with slithering snakes, screaming mummies and collapsing bridges.

The “spring 2023” return window means Indiana Jones Adventure could be closed for 10 weeks to six months. Seasonal refurbishments tend to bring Disneyland rides down for a few weeks while major upgrades can take months.

Disneyland’s upcoming refurbishment of Indiana Jones Adventure is expected to introduce elements or scenes from the upcoming new “Indiana Jones” film starring Harrison Ford, according to WDW News Today. “Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny” is coming to theaters in summer 2023.

The timing of the Disneyland ride closure pairs closely with the arrival of the new Indy film. Spring 2023 ends on June 21 while “Dial of Destiny” premieres on June 30. Disney often tries to tie ride refreshes with blockbuster debuts and vice versa. The refurbished ride is expected to reopen with behind-the-scenes and guest-facing updates to audio-animatronics like the attacking snake and other special effects — but not any significant changes from a story standpoint.

The 1995 Indiana Jones Adventure attraction will mark its 28th anniversary in March 2023. In recent years, the aging yet popular Adventureland motion-base dark ride has been prone to downtime issues that are expected to be addressed in the latest refurb.

In 2020, Disneyland crews replaced a perpetually collapsing bridge traversing a perilous molten lava flow in the attraction’s show set and refurbished rockwork. Before that, the Indy ride underwent its last major refurbishment in 2014.
