.....or, how about they bring back this guy!?
I don't see that happening.
Oh but they did Two in fact. A 12 year old boy and a 40 year old man.
My favorite Jungle Cruise joke, while leaving the dock, to use for a week after that was,
"And we're off like fingers on Pirates of the Caribbean... Google it!"
Do you have pictures of the glass coffin? I haven't been back since this was added in...
That gives the phrase "give them the finger" a whole new meaning...
I personally thought the mermaids were just off the shelf copies of the wave maker that they use outside the living seas...about the same effect...
The skeletons and siren song are okay...but the actual mechanical effect was...lackluster...
Well it's enjoyable for other people including myself. Who knows. Captain Jack can get into some unexplainable situations!!
It appeared on the site we don't speak of back in a the fall, I believe.
Sadly, the only person I know of who photographed it is not on friendly terms with this site.
It was far more enjoyable before 2006.
That's your opinion
Indeed and quite a few others as well.
To quote "The Road to El Dorado" : BOTH. Both is good. Losing the skull and the barker bird both hurt the attraction, IMHO.
The Skull just didn't really have any impact in the WDW version though beyond giving you a very brief heads up about the drop in a really goofy voice and his function as a call to adventure pretty much all went to the barker bird anyways.
I'm surprised they didn't put Jones in front of the drop when they did the WDW installation. That would be a fine way to punctuate things.
I can't really say I agree If the logic is that the fort is the same one that is being attacked inside the ride why would there be a Barker Bird there. Same with the talking skull being in the caves which is not haunted in the same way as the DL one, Same issue with Jones and Blackbeard.
The air wasn't stable enough.
So that was the original plan? If thats the case it makes the fact that they removed the skull even dumber. I am actually in favor of it's removal because of story reasons but that just seems cheap.
I've been looking for that. People were starting to call me crazy for having seen this photo and not have proof it existed!
Has anyone interpreted what the cardboard figure in the photo is doing? Is it throwing spears like in Pirates 4?
