can't help but feel I'm unqualified to review this ride. This is a
clear rip off, based on a popular Disney ride called The Jungle Cruise.
Logically it would be a good idea to compare them, to do that though I
need to have been on Disney's Jungle Cruise.
As you'd might
expect this ride sees you in a boat, cruising through the jungle. Don't
ask me which jungle though. It starts off with a not very politically
correct depiction of an African tribe, but throughout the ride the
architecture and wildlife varies from South-East Asia to South America.
Continuity problems aside though this is a good ride. For an outside
ride in a City amusement park it's surprisingly immersive. Enough trees
and fences have been set up to stop you seeing anything you shouldn't
be able to see. The models are just about on the right side of charmingly
nostalgic compared to shabby. There are plenty of animated humorous
scenes to keep your interest up, and the scenes are elaborate with
multiple models, ensuring there are plenty of memorable moments. Having
not ridden Disney's version I can't compare them, but on it's own it's
still a good fun family ride.
