  • Is Disneyland the only park with subs now?

    Is Disneyland the only park with a submarine ride now? I had a chance to go to Edmonton a couple of times this summer as I was working in eastern BC. I went to the West Edmonton Mall both times and saw that their subs are no longer giving rides. The subs are still there on a decorative basis but were replaced with bumper boats. Here's some photos I took:

    The sub lagoon with two subs parked:

    Submarine #1 tied up:



    Another sub in the submerged position (notice all the change?):

    Unlike Disneyland's, WEM's subs could submerge a little, kind of like the subs on Roller Coaster Tycoon 3

    Ths subs' replacement, bumper boats:


    The subs were also replace by radio contolled boats:


    What's supposed to be a replica of the Santa Maria is what the subs used to go around:


    The back end of the Santa Maria. You can partially see a submerged sub on the far side of the lagoon:


    Another shot of the Santa Maria:


    I had a chance to ride WEM's submarine ride back in 1987 and what was different from Disneyland's is that they had real fish, albiet in submerged aquariums.

    OMG! That is so incredibly awesome! I would love to have gone on that! If I was rich and famous I would be on a jet so fast to Canada and pay someone to reopen it for the day!

          When I first read the title of this topic, I thought:

          "Disneyland is serving sub sandwiches now?????"

          hahahahaha

          The subs and the attraction is still being worked on,
          so your statement is a little premature.
          Critter Country's a mess ev'r since the Country Bears were kicked out. Ya can't cover pooh with honey and 'spect people ta like it.

            Like Nautilus said above, Tokyo DisneySea has a 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea attraction that does use submarines but you never actually go underwater. It's a very convincing effect though, and this allows them to make much more elaborate sets without having to do much maintenance.

                It does indeed. It is a pretty cool Nemo themed Nautilus walk-through.

                Cool pictures above, Barbossa. Thank you for posting!

                  Disneyland still have their submarines? I thought that they got rid of it long ago.

                    They did for a while, but they are bringing them back with a "Finding Nemo" theme. It's scheduled to open sometime in the middle of next year.

                      To avoid confusion; the Nemo mentioned is not the fish from movie!

                          I look at Tokyo disneyland web site. It look like Disney sea have 6 person ride vehicles.
                          It can be a sub or not, you send me to japan and take trip to tokyo disneys to find out.:thumbup:

                          Chia Disney no on sub.
