Along the Jungle River Cruise

Hong Kong Disneyland is an interesting park, similar to the original Disneyland in many ways, but differing in some peculiar details.  Perhaps the most significant "same but totally not" element is the Jungle River Cruise, a combination of the traditional slapstick Jungle Cruise and the Rivers of America.  It is a boat tour through the wilderness, and it is intended to be corny.  Told in three languages--English, Cantonese, and Mandarin, the Jungle River Cruise isn't as openly absurd as the regular Jungle Cruise, as the skippers make an effort to preserve an illusion of actual adventure, but it's also not entirely serious either.  I'm not entirely sure what to make of it, to be honest, but it is rather pretty along the river!
