The Ark of the Covenant appeared in the Raiders of the Lost Ark segment of this attraction, being removed by Indiana Jones and Sallah.
During the Indiana Jones: Summer of Hidden Mysteries event, objects affiliated with Jones' collection could be found scattered around the Jungle Cruise during this time. This included the crate which the Lost Ark was stored within, supposedly left behind during one of Jones' travels.
- Within Indiana Jones Adventure: Temple of the Forbidden Eye crate with the Ark's ID from the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark appears in the Temple of the Forbidden Eye amongst the belongings of the Lost Delta Archaeological Expedition.
