Indiana Jones et le Temple du Péril

"I told you we're in trouble!"

Let the dark and mysterious forces of this ancient jungle temple take you for a thrilling spin around its towers and pillars. From a nail-biting climb to the peak of the rickety structure to the screeching turns and sudden drops around the ruins, you'll discover what it takes to become a true action-adventure archaeologist!

Walk in the footsteps of Indiana Jones on an unforgettable expedition to a forgotten jungle civilisation. The first expedition to the Temple of Peril departed many many months ago... but they were never seen again.

Approaching the temple, the abandoned base camp and the thick vegetation doesn't look promising. The distant whirring of mine cars draws you closer, as you climb the imposing staircase to the temple entrance, where your adventure into the great unknown of the jungle really begins...

The expedition vehicle climbs the rickety chain lift to the top of the excavation site. Any sign of the first explorers down there? There's no time to even catch your breath - you're hurled suddenly into a twisting, turning, plunging ride around the temple ruins, driven around and around, over and under by the mysterious forces which reside here.

Forget the first expedition, you'll need all the courage of Indiana Jones to make sure you live to tell your own tale...

  • This was the first Disney roller coaster in the world to feature an inversion — a portion of track which takes riders upside-down — with the loop hidden in the middle of the temple. Though other Disney resorts have since followed with similarly thrilling roller coasters, Disneyland Paris remains ahead with no less than seven inversions — as three each were built since at Space Mountain: Mission 2 and Rock 'n' Roller Coaster starring Aerosmith.
  • In 2000, the attraction was brought back into the spotlight with a relaunch as Indiana Jones et le Temple du Peril: A l'Envers!, with the bodies of the trains turned to face backwards as an added thrill. At the same time, the vehicles were modified to fit six guests — rather than four — per carriage, doubling the overall capacity by 50%. Since guests would now be facing backwards, several corners were modified with extra banking, to lessen the problem of riders not being able to anticipate turns, and many changes to the scenery and lighting were made, since guests were never intended to get a reverse view of the track. The attraction was the main draw of the season, advertised alongside The Tarzan Encounter at The Chapparal Theater.
  • On 4th December 2004, the ride reopened after just a week-long closure with its seats once again facing forwards. Though this was believed to have been in anticipation of the lengthy upcoming closure of Space Mountain in its own change-over to become Space Mountain: Mission 2, providing guests with a similar, forward-facing alternative, the change ultimately stuck as the attraction soon proved far more popular without the added "backwards" fear.

Indiana Jones et le Temple du Péril reaches a summit of around 16 metres, with 600 metres of twisting, looping track!
