Indiana Jones Adventure: Temple of the Crystal Skull is an attraction at Tokyo DisneySea.

Background[]

In 1931, Indiana Jones would travel to the Lost River Delta Cusco, Peru and discover a temple which he believed to hold the legendary Fountain of Youth. During his excavation he would disappear which lead his assistant Paco in leading temple tours to try and find him while making revenue from the tourist-trade.

Attraction Experience[]

The layout and experience of this attraction was copied from Indiana Jones Adventure: Temple of the Forbidden Eye. It however has more of a mesoamerican theming, replaces Mara with the Crystal Skull, the giant snake for Quetzalcoatl and has guests enter for the Fountain of Youth rather than the gifts of Mara.

Connections[]

Camp Discovery[]

A July 15, 1931 headline at this camp story tells of how the League of Adventurers joined Indiana Jones's search for the Temple of the Crystal Skull in Cusco, Peru, having discovered two halves of the same ancient map and bringing all terrain jeeps to the site, though Jones was frustrated with the unwanted extra help.[1]

Skipper Canteen[]

A book written by Paco called Temple Tours can be found in the Jungle Navigation Co. Ltd. Skipper Canteen. There is also a book called the Fountain of Youth written by Diego Colon.

Tower of Terror[]

There is a photograph of Harrison in-front of the temple located in the Hotel Hightower.[2]

Trader Sam's Enchanted Tiki Bar[]

In this bar, a photograph shows Trader Sam standing in-front of this temple.

Trivia[]

  • The temple of the crystal skull is not to be confused with the crystal skulls and temple of Akator found within the fifth Indiana Jones film Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull which came out seven years after the attraction opened.
    • This film was alluded to in the Jungle Cruise with Trader Sam having had his own tablet depicting the film's crystal skull.[3]
