    ROA In Hong Kong

    Hong Kong

    Sorry Can't edit title

    I don't know if it's called Rivers of America, But can you take a boat completely around the island, like you can at the original park?

    There is no Frontierland. Therefore no Rivers of America. The only island is Tarzan Island in Adventureland where Jungle Cruise goes around the island.

    I didn't know that, but the name really fits.

    BTW. IMHO, it's the best Jungle Cruises from a ride system perspective... but the DL's Skippers are *much* better....

    Thank-you Mod for fixing the title.
    It's hard to tell from the satellite view whether the boats circumnavigate the island or not.
    I bet that it is not a coincidence that the shape resembles TSI from Disneyland.

    According to this expansion concept released back in 2009, it does circle around the island.

    Yes, the Jungle Cruise boats definitely circle the island. However, even with the upgraded show elements and new bits, it pales in comparison to Disneyland's original ride because there is no intimacy: you are out in the open most of the time (perhaps the foliage has grown a lot since I was there four years ago and it's better now). I was disappointed by it. Considering how few rides there are in the park, you really can't afford to be disappointed by any of them.
