Did you ever wonder what would happen if you crossed the Haunted Mansion with the Jungle Cruise? Well you don’t need to wonder anymore! In honor of the Haunted Mansion’s 50th anniversary, Disneyland Jungle Cruise skippers have decided it’s time to voyage away from the river and into the spookiest ride at the park. The result? Hauntingly hilarious.
The Jungle Cruise has always been known for its punny wit, and now the newly-released video tour of the manor offers that unique style of humor that only a jungle navigator can deliver. The two guides, Skipper Nick and Skipper Jen, start outside, commenting on their ”dead” walkie talkies and suggesting they ”bury” the bad jokes. Moving through the elevator and into the doom buggy itself, the playful pair quip their way through the entire ride, even going so far as to guess Madame Leota’s hat size. Apparently she’s a ”medium.” Insert laughter here.
At the end of the ride, the skippers turn a familiar line from the Jungle Cruise into their farewell to the ghostly abode: ”Now it’s time for the most dangerous turn in our journey… Our return to the mortal realm.” They manage to use phrases from the Cruise throughout the tour, simply adjusted to their eerie surroundings. It’s ghoulish fun!
To hear these jokes and many more, fans of the Jungle Cruise and/or the Haunted Mansion will want to check out the video for themselves. Disneyland certainly knows how to celebrate our favorite rides in new and hilarious ways! We hope to see more creative videos like this in the future!
