    Jungle Cruise Pranks and Jokes

    I just ran across this interesting website that contained jokes and pranks from Disneylands Jungle Cruise.

    FROM: http://www.csua.berkeley.edu/~yoda/d...and/jungle.htm

    "Those of you adventurers entering the world-famous Jungle Cruise, please notice there are two lines, one on the right and the other on the left. If you'd like to keep your family together, please stay in the same line. However, if there is someone in your family you'd like to get rid of, just put them in the opposite line and you'll never see them again."

    "Those of you who have just entered the Jungle Cruise are probably resigned to the fact that, being at the end of the line, you have a long wait. Well, we aim to please here at the world-famous Jungle Cruise. So, on the count of three, I want everyone to turn around. One...Two...Three. There--those at the back of the line are now at the front. Doesn't that make you feel better?"

    "Feel that mist on your faces...Don't worry that's only the monkeys in the trees."

    "Feel that mist on your faces...Don't worry that's only poisonous bacteria that will eat you all alive."

    "Now please watch out for these carnivorous vines [pointing]. Last week, one of them reached into the back of the boat and pulled a woman right out. It was awful! And just before she disappeared, she was feeling just vine...[Pointing] In fact she was sitting right where that lady/man/girl/boy in color is sitting!"
    And now for the Pranks page.
    FROM: http://www.csua.berkeley.edu/~yoda/d...nd/jpranks.htm

    Intentionally timing the "Squirting Elephant" to soak yourself or passengers. (There is also a way to manually activate the "Squirter" on an unsuspecting skipper by hitting the animatronic's reset button, located inside the large rock where the Elephant Pool waterfall is (the rock is actually a hollow building!)

    Shooting boats with a maintenance hose that sits behind the gorilla camp.

    Having fun at the Schweitzer Falls bend. This actually needs some explaining. Sometimes a skipper will take out an empty boat to prevent the fleet from backing up and keeping the boats evenly spaced. This boat is called a "deadhead". When that solo skipper passes Schweitzer, he'll eventually get an audience when another boat passes in the other direction. Skippers have been known to dangle their bodies off the edge of the boat, playing dead, with a spear jammed in their back. Others will sit indian-style like a monk on top of the boat's smokestack. Sometimes the "deadhead" skipper gets a prank pulled on HIM. Other skippers will climb on TOP of Schweitzer falls with a giant bucket of water. As the "deadhead" passes underneath (the 2nd time past it) the skippers will dump the bucket of water on the boat from above. Oh yeah, one more "deadhead" story. As a tribute to Jerry Garcia on the night of his death, the crew sent a unmanned "deadhead" (obviously because of its coined name) around the river after park closing. A skipper jumped inside, set the throttle, and leaped back out as the boat pulled away from the dock. A few skippers even heard the ghost of Jerry out on that boat, singing to the animals. : )

    Speed Trap. (This is by far my favorite prank... but, unfortunately, a hand-me-down story from the guys who did it) After dark, two skippers would take the skiff (a small maintenance boat w/ an outboard motor) out on to the river and hide around the corner from Schweitzer Falls. As a Jungle boat would pass by and head towards the Nile Elephants, the skiff would zoom around the corner behind the boat. The skiff operator would hold up red-and-white flashing police lights purchased at Radio Shack. He'd demand the Jungle boat to stop, where then the host skipper was required to do a field sobriety test. Obviously he'd fail. So the arresting officer would make the Jungle skipper ride back home in the skiff while that officer would finish giving the guests their tour.

    Some skippers would do the spiel about the attacking natives and then yell to the animatronics "Hey guys, I said throw the spears! Next time you better do it, OK? Now get down in the bushes and hide again... I'll be back later!" At that moment the animatronics appeared to crouch down and hide in the bushes as he commanded... a result of the computer resetting itself for the next boat.
    I don't know how accurate these are, but they are still pretty funny.

    Anyway there are MANY MANY MORE jokes and pranks I was not able to post so I recommend you click the links I posted and read the rest of them .

    many of the pranks are actually pretty accurate. I have a neighbor who is an old skipper from the 80's and he has told me many similar stories. Good stuff, good stuff!

    Our skipper in June purposely gunned the engine as we entered the elephant bathing pool. The entire back of the boat was drenched. He also did the native joke also.

    I love the last one, I saw it many times. One of my favorites, watching the attackers turn around and hide...
    If you see a cute yellow lab puppy with a yellow cape, WAVE! It might be us! (Or it may be someone else that lurks here!) Thank you for asking before you pet! Next trip, Dec 22-Jan 3rd.
