Tarzan's Hong Kong Treehouse

At Hong Kong Disneyland, there is no Rivers of America.  Instead, Adventureland makes up the whole of the original left side of the park inside the berm, and the "Rivers" is made up of the Jungle River Cruise.  The resulting island ends up being Tarzan's Treehouse, accessible only by river raft across the waterway.

Like the California version, Tarzan's Treehouse is a walk-through attraction up a large artificial tree, with sets and scenes retelling the story of Tarzan.  What's different, however, are the views--looking across the water toward Fantasyland and Tomorrowland on one side, Grizzly Gulch and Mystic Pointe and Toy Story Land on the other.  Take a little tour through this Far East iteration via the photos below!

Rafts cross the water to Tarzan's Treehouse, which stretches up along the riverbank.

The island has some caves for exploration and some pathways on ground level.

But of course, most of the point here is to rise above ground level to the trees.

The queue of the Jungle River Cruise lies below.

Climbing higher puts guests at tree canopy height.

The design and layout of the treehouse itself seems to follow Disneyland California's lead.

Not a surprise, since so much of the park is also patterned after the original Disneyland.

They're actually opposite each other, and at the right angle, you can get this crafty composition.

Tea for anyone?

All in all, this is a fun attraction, but not one that needs to be explored by someone who has visited Disneyland, unless there is extra time (and at Hong Kong Disneyland, there usually is!).
