The track layout of the Indiana Jones is copied from the first looping roller coaster built by the Pinfari company. Pinfari called this a TL-59, the TL stands for "The Loop" and the 59 is for the ride's 59m width. This Intamin version copies the course, but uses a track style that is unique to Intamin.
Originally the Indiana Jones was a traditional roller coaster where the trains traveled in a forwards direction. In 2000 several changes were made. The most significant was changing the direction of the trains. This involved not only turning the trains around, but adding additional scenery as now riders are watching from the opposite direction. The track was also altered in places to increase the banking. Finally the cars were changed from 2 rows per car to 3 rows per car, thus increasing the riders per train by 50%.
Between November 28th, 2004 and December 3rd, 2004 the Indiana Jones was closed while the trains were tuned around and once again, riders travel forwards once again.
"à l'envers" is French for "In Reverse".
