When McDonalds dropped their sponsorship, they took the basic poster design and replaced the captions with the species names.

What I find neat about this was during the time Mcdonald's sponsered this section of the park there was more to it for Chicagoans like myself as many of the Cast molds of the Skeletal Dino's were from The Field Museum.

I like the ride, but just with the time-hop portion was better...now it feels like driving through a toaster oven and you are in a jungle...was never a convincing or even passable effect... Indy doesnt have a time hop component, but the temple entrance and doors is a much more compelling intro...

Perhaps they will use the projection mapping within the tunnels to make it look like we warped through the time barrier..

Sue was actually partially prepped on-site at AK when the park first opened. The skeleton was a joint purchase that included Disney and the museum. In exchange, Disney was able to have the fossil prep lab where you could watch the fossils being worked on (roughly where Triceratop Spin is now), and get a copy of the complete skeleton when done.

I didn't realize Oldengate was a copy from Chicago, too.
