One of my most nostalgic rides at DL is of course the Jungle Cruise. I still remember being a kid and how exciting it was when the tour guide would shoot his pistol to fend off the "wild hippos." Adventureland has always been my favorite land and the JC one of the most immersive rides in the park.
Having said that, I think the JC has become a bit of an enigma for me. I still love the experience, but am a bit tired of the whole "everybody knows this is fake so let's make it funny" routine. We've seen ride make-overs for HM, POTC, Space etc... When will it be time to do something with our beloved Jungle Cruise?
I would hate to see it go and think it still has great potential....Any ideas?
Maybe a Jungle Book theme? or add some new animatronic elements which were a little scarier and less predictable? I love the cave area of the JC at WDW and would like to see more of that element and less of the "pun-happy" tour guides. What do you think?
