July 30, 1993 – The Indiana Jones and the Temple of Peril Attraction Opens in Disneyland Paris
“Forget finding your friends, you’re going to need all the courage of Indiana Jones to get out alive!”
On July 30, 1993, the roller coaster attraction Indiana Jones and the Temple of Peril opened in Disneyland Paris. When the attraction was initially built, Imagineers picked a stock roller coaster attraction so as to quickly add needed capacity for the park; Imagineers worked quickly to add theming to create the attraction with the perfect Disney touch. This is one of several Indiana Jones-themed attractions within the Disney Parks, but the first and only roller coaster. From April 1, 2000, to December 3, 2004, the attraction was operated backwards.
