Indiana Jones….Epic Stunt Spectacular!

The Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular is a stunt show that will both entertain and educate. Set on the set of the opening scene of Raiders of the Lost Ark, the stage production staff shooting the “movie”, prep the audience about what it takes to do action films. A few reenacted scenes later, and you’ve mastered the movie. Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular utilizes both action sequences and educating narrations, as you are guided through the steps of making an action movie, like Indiana Jones.

Do get there early or you may be stuck in the “standing room only” area. (yeah, that was us)

So honestly not really being a Indiana Jones fan I still found this interesting.  Although for me it was one of those shows you see once and don’t need to repeat very soon 🙂

Obviously not all will share this opinion.  The show is consistently upgrading it’s electronics and computer elements to keep it up to date. It is currently the longest running show at a Disney World park. The stunts are real but obviously it doesn’t always end well.

“In 2009 A Walt Disney World cast member is dead after an accident Monday evening at Hollywood Studios.

Stunt performer Anislav Varbanov, 30, was fatally injured during a rehearsal for the ” Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular.” He was doing a tumbling roll after 7 p.m. when he was hurt. He was pronounced dead at 8.43pm.”

I also have read this has not been the only incident but the most recent. Kinda puts a damper on the whole thing!

Check out the video….(no spoiler alert just a bit of the show)
