    How would you update Jungle Cruise?

    Re-theme it to The Jungle Book?
    Allow guests to give live narration?
    Add rain and live animals?
    Have boats go in opposite directions and allow guests to squirt water as at Legoland?
    Or what else?
    Or leave it as-is?

    I'd leave it as is, but do major AA upgrades.

    I'd leave it as-is, maybe make the spiel a little mor serious, like the original, in scenes that need to be serious, like phirannas and tribe scene. I love the funny spiel, but I think it should be funny and tell a story, and I think right now, it especially detracts from the story of the tribe and phirannas parts.

    I would tone down the comedy and make more of the ride a serious adventure. I'd like to see advanced AAs added for more realistic animals - a pacing tiger, a tree-climbing snake, moving spiders, flying birds, maybe even a bird that flies at then over the boat.

    Re: How would you update Jungle Cruise?

    Mmm, I'd go with pretty much anything techskip has ever suggested for the attraction, honestly. But if I had to contribute my own original ideas...I think the only things the attraction needs are improved AAs in a few scenes, a consistently talented cast of skips who have the permission and the creativity to deliver truly funny spiels, and perhaps an indoor section.

    I think the humor should be toned down, and the AAs upgraded with some new ones added. You should feel as if you're actually in danger in some parts, as guests did for years after it opened. I don't think the comedy should be lost altogether, as it really has become a staple of the attraction, but used in moderation.

    Save the humor for odd moments and great lines...otherwise it feels strained and tired. Especially when you get a lackluster skipper.

    Advanced AA animals would be terrific, especially if they were more frightening.

    Other than that, really, no changes. Certainly none of the things in the original post.

    If they ever theme Jungle Cruise to a movie, even Jungle Book, I will have a @$%#ing FIT.

    That being said... I could do with an intercom that's not as loud and a bit better on the audio quality. Those things hurt your ears if you happen to be right under them.

    I'm all for improved AAs. I think real animals would be too hard to maintain.

    How would I update it?
    Well first off, TEAR IT DOWN!
    Then replace it with a coaster set on the island in the Incredibles.
    And while we're on the topic of improving Adventureland, they should add Iago, Zazu, AND Stitch to the Tiki Room.
