I was just thinking about this park the other day and hoping you weren't done with it...   :up:

Clayton? Is he from Tarzan? I have a huge gap in my Disney knowledge. I really know nothing about any of the cartoons after Beauty and the Beast.

Can't wait to see this! Glad it's back!

Welcome to Zu-Amba.



The words Zu and Amba come from the Edgar Rice Burroughs' Tarzan, meaning Big and Fall, respectively.  This is from the language the Apes taught Tarzan as a child.

For this Villains park, the ride is "operated by" the Clayton Jungle Tours company, which will take you on a jungle expedition "the likes of which you have never seen". Clayton by the way, is the main human antagonist in the Tarzan animated movie.  In the books, Tarzan's last name is actually Clayton, Disney repurposed it (or he may be actually related to him).  But back to the ride.

First you make your way through the queue past the tour company's office and a makeshift base camp.



Tour rafts are always ready to receive new explorers



The previous endeavor of tourism by plane did not work so well in the jungle



But you don't have to worry about that anymore, up to explore the jungle you go



Explorers are actively trying to find new treasures in the thick jungle, just clear a few trees and get ready to dig.



But the jungle is also full of dangers





It looks like Sabor is still lurking around







And just past the remains of a jungle survivor's abandoned old home...



there is Zu-Amba! 40 feet drop into an inescapable soaking!



If that is not enough, onlookers can use water guns to make sure there not a single dry spot



What's this?  it's not over?  a lave tube sounds dangerous...



Of course there is volcanic activity, that's where all those geysers come from!



And past the danger, lies the reward.  A treasure, from an ancient civilization!



And as you make it back to base camp, you are left with a decision... will you let Clayton know where the treasure is, or will you keep the secret of the hidden treasure?



I just did a ton of pictures because I know the SGW audience likes those better, but I will make a POV sometime this week.  Also, a shoutout to the guys and gals a BroNation that helped me refine some the details in the sign.

Loved seeing a Tarzan inspired ride. I think it's one of Disney's most underrated films. There's a lot of impressive scenes throughout the ride!

I loved that ride. You really don't get any sense of the layout or size when you're riding. One of my favourite rapids POVs I've seen so far. And there were some brilliant details. I really liked the plane crashed in the tree.
