Indiana Jones and the Temple of Peril review

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Peril is a rollercoaster in Disneyland Paris. You find this one in Adventureland, in Disneyland Park.

As you might have guessed, the coaster is loosely based on Indiana Jones and the movies. Even though it’s just a little. So even if you have never seen the movies, you will certainly enjoy this thrillride.

It’s a rollercoaster with an inversion, so that means that it’s not for everyone. Want to know if this is the ride for you? Then continue reading!

What can you expect?

You’ll find this attraction at the very back of Disneyland Park. It can be quite difficult to find. The easiest way is to enter through the Adventureland entrance and then to continue walking straight-on, around the water. Then just follow the screams, and you know you are going in the right direction.

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Peril has a long queue with many references to the Indiana Jones movies. The ride itself can be best described as a mine cart of the loose. Not similar to Big Thunder Mountain, but in a wild mouse rollercoaster type of way.

This means you are in for a very wild ride with a hidden inversion. You will only see it when you are in the queue, but it’s quite unexpected when you are actually on the ride.

It can be quite a rough ride, so hold on tight, and keep your head against the headrest for the best experience.

Who shouldn’t be riding this rollercoaster?

First, if for any health reason you are unable to ride, then you of course, shouldn’t. There is a minimum height requirement, which is 1,40m. Anybody who is smaller than that can’t ride this rollercoaster. Know that there are several points where the height is measured, so no cheating here.

Also, this rollercoaster has an inversion, if that scares you or you just don’t like the feeling I would skip it. The looping is quite slow, so you get the full upside-down experience. This can be quite intimidating.

Finally, it’s not necessarily an attraction you don’t want to miss, so I would only ride it when the wait times are low. Not that it’s a bad ride, but it’s not as special as Big Thunder Mountain or Crush’s Coaster.

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Peril review

Finally, our Indiana Jones and the Temple of Peril review.

We like the ride, but do not necessarily love it. It’s fun, it’s a good laugh, and when the queue is short, it’s definitely worth a visit.

The thing I don’t like is that it’s quite rough, especially the last part, where I really hold on to the restraints not to bump my head. This has happened a few times in the past, so it’s best to sit back with your head against the headrest and really hold on to the restraints.

For me, this ride has something special, a wonderful memory. It is the first rollercoaster with a looping I ever went on. As a kind, very nervous, and all by myself because my parents don’t like rollercoasters. I felt so brave for doing it, and just thinking about it makes me smile.

This is the perfect coaster to introduce your kids to inversions, as there is only one, and the rest of the ride is not as scary. Maybe you can give them the same memory as I still have about 25 years later. Indiana Jones and the Temple of Peril will always be special to me, and therefore I say, it’s a must-ride when the queues are short. Tip! Go later in the day, wait times will be 5 to 10 minutes at most!
