"Great for first-timers and Indy fans!"

This is one of the original attractions at the former MGM Studios, so if you've seen it, you've pretty much seen it. If you are an Indiana Jones fan, like me, you'll probably still enjoy it every time.
All of the setups are from the 'Raiders' film, not the series, but are all classic scenes to be sure. As far as theme park stunt shows compare, this has to still be one of the best and most interesting. The sets look great, it isn't cheesy like say, the Batman stunt show was at Six Flags. The choreography is fun to watch, and with a John Williams score how can it get more exciting?
Don't go on a rainy day however, as the show is cut very short and you don't get the full effect. This is also a show where I'd personally say: try to sit close to the front wall, and on the right side. You really feel close to some great action!!

so i saw this show in 2003 and from what i remember it was great. we went in jan. 2009 and they must close it down pretty early because it wasnt even dark yet and it was closed. then we went to the lights motors action and that was closed too. so i wonder if they close these shows down early? if so i suggest getting there early in the day instead of around dinnertime. we didnt know & my husband didnt get to see it. but from what i rememeber of it was decent. bottom line, dont wait! =)
"exciting and informative"

This was alot of fun. I was expecting non-stop stunts, but it's more of an explanation of how stunts are executed in films. Very informative, which was nice touch. Add the fact that the performed stunts are really exciting, and you have a winner.

As one of MGM's oringinal attraction's Indiana Jones is a classic show. The stunts are entertaining and they show you how some are done. It is a good experience.

Whereas first timers will enjoy this spectacle (especially fans of the very first Indie outing), it tends to drag the 2nd and 3rd time. It can't be long before Disney think about an up-date. The problem is, what? Few adventure films live up to Indie, although Pirates of the Carribean....? Maybe?
You will enjoy the show, but it's not spectacular.

I've only seen this show once. I must've gone on a bad day -- the stuntman performing Indy was terrible. He jogged through each stunt as if he were tired of doing it, no enthusiasm for the part. I realized he probably performed the same thing several times a day, but come on. The storyline itself was fun.

Indiana Jones, Epic Stunt Spectacular: One of the greatest stunt shows I have ever seen. I especially love the pre-show entertainment...the picking of random audience members and making them do stupid things...hilarious. I love the stunts...I love the flips, the kicks, the punches...I love the beginning sequence, with Indie falling out of the "ceiling" and then running through the spikes, getting caught with those statues, and then finally the "Big Ball". Love that part. The next few scenes aren't seen unless there isn't a cloud in the sky...if it is raining, you're cut short. *they really need to find a way to cover the WHOLE are so you don't get cut short.* But as for the town scenes, the revealing of the cast member in pink, or as I call him, the dude always in sunglasses acting as an audience member...I love that. I also love the fire sequences and fight scenes, they are a 10 in my book!

This is a fun show with three separate "scenes" demonstrating different stunts. During the pre-show, the Casting Director chooses several people from the audience to act as extras in the scenes. This process, as well as the between scene banter between various crew members, is pretty funny. The scenes and stunts themselves are impressive; the performers' timing is precise.
"good action-filled show"

all i can say is that even if you haven't seen any of the indiana jones movies, but you just like anything that's full of pulse-pounding action, then this show's for you
"See it at night"

Try to see this show at night. The fire effects are much more dramatic. Nice stunt work and basic explosions. Doesn't take itself too seriously.

Great show. The young kids love it. Not too intense, but alot of action.
"Look out Indy!"

This stunt show isn't the type of attraction that becomes a must-see on every visit, but it's pretty fun. Scenes from Indiana Jones films are recreated live in front of you to show how the stunts are really pulled off. Comedy is inserted to the presentation, but is fairly predictable. Also, extras for the show are picked oit of the audience which makes each show at least a little different
"Has Indy lost his touch?"
Reviewed on Sep 01, 2002 by Genius7777
Indiana Jones has been around for a long time, and still they havent updated the show at disney world. The attraction features indy going through several stunt sequences, they also pick volunteers out of the audience to participate. As a first time viewer you would love it! but after countless visits to disney we wonder if Indy has lost his touch?

BASIC THRILL SHOW TO BE SEEN ONCE.

Hi...The 80's called &... they want there show back.
A very dated movie and show. The first Indy came out when? In the early 80's.....dont get me wrong...I liked the movies... and the show was...well ok... two words: "UPDATE IT!".
If you have never seen this show... go see it...once.
Great FX, and action... they pick some people out of the audience to participate as well..which adds a nice touch.
But this show is really dated...Hmmmm...maybe when the "Indiana Jones 4" script is done...they will update this 80's flashback.
"Tired stunt show"
Reviewed on Aug 23, 2002 by wdwcrazy
Indiana Jones Stunt show has been there pretty much since the park has opened. It also hasn't changed much since. You are put into a few Indiana Jones stunt scenes, then shown how they work and are put together. The scenes are action-packed and keeps your attention all throughout the show.
This is a great show if you've never seen it before. After you've seen it a few times it gets very old fast. Overall this is somting to see if you haven't before.
