Construction Spotlight: Skull Mountain

Recommended Posts

Skull Mountain opened a little more than a year after Disneyland opened Indiana Jones Adventure.  With Time Warner striving to be like Disney at the time, you can see Disney's inspiration on the Great Adventure ride.  This was also obvious in Skull Mountain's Original Queue.

^ Just like superhero rides are scattered about today, the same was true back in the Time Warner years.   Look where the Right Stuff stimulator was located.

It's cool to see pictures of the ride track before the building was finished.

I remember as a kid, watching the workmen staple the foam rock panels to the sides of the building.
