I took advantage of the single rider line for the Indiana Jones Adventure in Disneyland. Using single rider allowed me to experience the attraction many times, completely bypassing the long waits in the regular queue. Unfortunately, that also meant missing that whole great queue. I thought it was odd, though, that the single rider line took me on a round about way- through the exit, actually- and ultimately to two elevators that seemed decidedly...off stage. As you said, it ruined a lot of the magic. It's a trade-off, for sure. I never saw another person on the elevators during my many trips that visit, but I assumed this would have been the wheelchair access as well as single rider.

Robert, the elevator at USH was not the worst part; the place where I had to wait for the van had no theme, no music, nothing. That place kills the magic. Had I known that Transformers was coming to Florida the following year, I would have skipped the lower lot altogether.
KJ, I remember those elevators. Again, no theme.
All elevators should be as fun as the ones at ToT.

Oh, I disagree about the van/elevator at USH. I think it's themed to "hell". Took it once (back when my wife was in the 'chair, not me). Haven't been to the lower level since.

I'm not sure how fuzzy your memories are, but the elevator at Disneyland for Indy is definitely themed.
