  • News Kilimanjaro Safaris expansion

    Didn't think they could expand it but looks like they have some room.

    "Beginning this spring, the Kilimanjaro Safaris attraction will undergo some changes to give guests an additional opportunity to see more of their favorite animals, specifically zebra. To do so, Walt Disney Imagineering will make some creative changes to the last scene in the attraction by removing the

    Very exciting! I wonder how the story line of the attraction will be altered since we will not get the baby elephant back now...

        It's about time they take out the "poachers" storyline. That was fine the first time you ride, but it gets old fast.

          I always got the "Well, we're back to Disney" feeling whenever I see Little Red at the end.
          It's like your so emmersed in the scene and then jolted back to reality.

            expansion sounds a bit generous. They are basically just finally putting the poacher's story out of it's misery. After years of nipping and tucking at it, the script, and sets.. it just made little sense anymore.

              and they probably stopped wanting to do the minute maintenance required on the gunfire effects that often didn't really work lately :P

                  If you look at original concepts for Kilimanjaro Safaris, the part that got the axe was a sweeping vista about midway through the ride. However, for the most part, KS was built as intended, and really doesn't need much improvement.

                  On the other hand...Kali River Rapids as built is a pale shadow of its original concept...which was on almost the same scale as KS and also featured animals. My greatest wish for AK is that some day KRR is expanded to fulfil its potential. Not that I'm holding my breath...
