It’s tough to say. In theory, it’s a cheesy idea at best. However, so is the Jungle Cruise if you think about it. What will make or break it will be the same thing that determines a good cruise versus a bad cruise: if your Skipper owns what they are doing, and makes it something beyond what is written in the spiel.
Wanna learn what it’s like to be a Skip or about the Jungle Cruise, or just wanna ask a Long time Skip a question? Gonna throw one more “Ask a Jungle Skipper” out there, because that last one was fun. Send me a message and ask away, and I’ll pick my favorites to answer.
My favorite joke? Depends on my mood during the day.
I was a big fan of this joke at the trapped safari:
"I guess he’ll get the the point in the end….Man, look at that horn. It’s gonna go straight up his AS we turn around the bend here…"
My favorite part of the jungle is when there is a boat backup at unload. That’s when who you are as a Skip comes out as you make filler material.
Something that all Skippers does on every holiday?
You can request attractions, and request the Jungle Cruise, but honestly it’s more of a “we need this many people here” sort of thing.
I’m bored. Wanna ask a long time (10 years) former Jungle Skipper something about the jungle or being a Skip? Shoot me a message. After 24 hours, I’ll pick my favorites and answer.
It’s always safe to stand up on a jungle boat, especially when it is apparently going 90 MILES AN HOUR.
