Jungle Cruise, September 1969

By 1969, Adventureland's jungle had matured into a convincingly lush and verdant tropical forest. The kind you could get lost in... forever! The only roads going through this wilderness are of the watery variety, but don't feel too safe; they are full of hippos, crocodiles, piranhas, and probably leeches (even though you never see the them, I know they're there!).

Oh, meanwhile there's a nice view of the loading dock.

The "Lost Safari" scene is a Jungle Cruise classic. In a way it was lucky that these guys only had to deal with a rhino. If it had been a vicious, flesh-eating giraffe, it would be all over!

Oo thanks Maj, a Jungle Cruise dock shot for me desktop =click= =sploosh= The steaming, teeming jungle...

'course the Lost Safari scene is brilliant, a pointed comment on life, and for the capper, there's some dogs eager to laugh at you.

Great pictures Major. I am almost done with my new computer. What a pain. But it will be a real cool system when I am done.

The line at the J.C. never seemed long with a view like that to look at.

Regarding the dreaded, flesh-eating Camelopardalis --- very funny. Maybe we should get together and come up with a completely new J.C. script. And by "we" I mean "mostly you".
