Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular At Disney's Hollywood Studios

 

Disney World takes guests on a behind the scenes look at how stunts are done for a classic adventure movie like "Raiders Of The Lost Ark."  In the Indiana Jones Stunt Spectacular, you will see stunts re-enacted from your favorite scenes of this great George Lucas movie.

Indiana Jones Stunt Spectacular
The Indiana Jones Stunt Spectacular has been thrilling audiences at Disney's Hollywood Studios since August of 1989.  Even after over 20 years, this attraction still draws large crowds to the action packed show.  It often fills the 2,000 person theater to capacity.  Disney FastPass is available to ensure that you are able to attend the show that best fits your schedule.

One of the favorite aspects of this show is that it asks for volunteers from the audience to perform as "Extras" during the movie scene re-enactments.  The chosen audience members are briefly interviewed, get a chance to perform in front of the audience and then head off to wardrobe to get a costume to be part of the action later in the show.  Note: Arrive early for the show in order to get a seat closer to the floor if you are interested in being a volunteer.  Then when the time comes be enthusiastic and wave your arms to get "noticed."  They only take adults over 18 for these volunteer positions.


Indiana Jones fans will love the classic scenes that are re-enacted starting with the famous scene where Indiana gets past all of the temple defenses to get the Golden Idol only to end up being chased by a 12 foot boulder.

After the opening, the stage is pulled out of the way to open up to a Cairo city scene where a well choreographed fight scene takes place.  There is a lot of action going on and all of the stunt performers do an excellent job.  Since a stunt show is about action, here are several pictures to capture the action as you will see acrobatics, fighting, daring rooftop maneuvers, zip lines, and finally an explosion.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The scene concludes with a giant explosion as a truck crashes and flips over.  At the end of each scene they return to talk to the audience and make you feel that you are really behind the scenes of a real movie set.

The last big scene involves the German base and airfield where Indiana and Marion fight to escape the German Army.  Here we see the classic showdown between Indiana Jones and the muscular German Mechanic as Marion is trying to control the German aircraft.  Again pictures best convey the action as stunt fighting, shooting, and explosions make this a thrilling climax to the 32 minute show.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular Is A MUST SEE!
The Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular is a MUST SEE Disney World Attraction that should be on your list for every trip.  No matter how many times you have seen this show it is still entertaining and exciting to watch.  It reminds you better than any other attraction (besides Great Movie Ride) that Disney's Hollywood Studios is about Hollywood and the Movies.  Here you see how they create some of the magic that you love.
