PostSubject: AT&T Decoder Card Reference Guide   Fri Jan 18, 2008 5:23 am

AT&T was the sponsor for the Indiana Jones Adventure when the attraction first opened. As a promotional handout, they created a translation card for the Temple "Maraglyphics". On the reverse, they included an ad for their services. The ad changed a few times, and a new card design followed. Here are the three different card designs that were released:

VERSION 1 10-ATT / Choose Wisely



VERSION 2 10-ATT / For Your Calling Adventure



VERSION 3 1-800-CALL-ATT / Know the Code



As with all printed material, every so often an error slips through. Though the quality control was exceedingly good, these cards were no exception. Of the thousands of cards that passed through my hands, I only found 8 errors, all within the same bundle. The reverse side of these cards is the same as Version 3 above, printed correctly. Only the face was misaligned.





As AT&T has ended their sponsorship, these cards have long since disappeared.

I have a few of these. I thought is was fun to decipher the glyphs while waiting in line. I liked how the entire line was very interactive for guests, with things to pull on and push that would evoke a reaction.

The only trouble is, the line moves much faster than they had intended. People don't have that much time to decipher. The first real bit of text was this giant wall panel. Nobody got past the first line.



Except me. I memorized it. ;-)

Impressive. The line did move fast. I just forgot about it after awhile. I couldn't concentrate with all the anticipation of getting onto the ride.

Well, I had the time. Plus, one of my jobs there was to walk in the morning's line from rope drop. They had to follow me through the queue. Some mornings, they weren't quite ready, so they told me to stall. So I translated everything for the first few guests. It was pretty fun.

Oh, and
