    This is my all time favorite ride its no big thunder mountain but its so bad with the jokes I go on it about 5 times every year. The best skipper we had was last year, she improvised alot.

    Tour guides "guide" riders through the jungles of the world, narrating w/ TONS of puns! Hilarious! Amazing animatronics! FastPass+ recommended. Better during the day than at night (for visuals).

    If you go during a busy day. Use your fast pass option for this ride and use the time to go on Pirates and the Swiss Family tree house.

    MARCIE (did I spell that right?...whatever) IS THE BEST! Seth is just as awesome, but Marcie was our first skipper. And you know there's just always something about your first ;)

    As the ride ages, the cruise "guides" have become the best parts- dishing out charming and hokey one liners by the boat load.

    If you get a good skipper this ride can be hysterical. Ours was great and the jokes are so corny you can't help but laugh.

    Your experience will vary depending on which skipper you get. Some are awesome and improvise and some just read from the script.

    Always enjoyable. The boat skipper/guide really is the key to enjoyment of this ride. The cornier the jokes the better!

    Come late at night if you can. The line is much shorter and it's cool seeing things by the light of the boat.

    A classic ride with punny jokes if you have a fun "tour guide" during Christmas they tweak the jokes and add decorations for the "jingle cruise"
  • Slightly P.

    If you get an enthusiastic guide, it's hilarious. Definitely worth the stop every time we're in MK.

    Our skipper made this attraction for us- very funny commentary! The animals do look incredibly life like.

    One of the beat rides at Magic Kingdom if you're a fan of puns, word-play, and wedgy jokes.

    If you thought the ride was corny or lame then unlike the guy on the pole over the rhino, you've missed the point...love this ride!
  • Matthew F.
    Matthew FronheiserNovember 17, 2015
    It all depends on your skipper on how your experience is. Just remember...."It's the only thing in the Magic Kingdom that's not Frozen.....It's water!!!"

    If you are lucky enough to get Marcy as your driver, you'll pass out laughing! If you aren't, get off and wait for Marcy. Seriously.

    Its fun and does not have a long line. The park attendants piloting the cruise are hilarious and have a dark sense of humor.

    Brendan was our skipper and I liked him a lot. His dry humor made the otherwise mediocre ride pretty nice!

    Be sure to stop and tell one of the skippers.. You are there to pick up your red rubber band.
  • Zach J.

    Go at night! The humor is more "adult," there are much less screaming kids and it's NOT HOT.

    Some of these skippers do this for a living; they're not a tv. Humor them and laugh and clap cause it makes the day go by smoother

    Passeio de barco bem tranquilo porem se seu inglês não for bom vc não entenderá as piadas que os condutores fazem e os gritinhos histéricos irritam. O que faz a atração ficar chata e sem graça.
  • TATA CINELLI O.
    1- O FAST PASS demorou + do que o habitual. 2- A moça que conduzia o Barco fez piada o tempo todo o que tornou a viagem muito chata. 3- Fui pq tenho filho pequeno, mas até para ele achei muito chato!
