Tarzan Rocks

This show is permanently closed. This page is retained here for historical interest.

Tarzan Rocks was a live action stage production that would have been the showcase at most parks, but was a bit overshadowed by Festival of the Lion King at Animal Kingdom. Based on the characters from Disney's animated feature Tarzan, the show is a half hour of singing, dancing, gymnastics, and extreme sports. The jungle set, costuming, and music all set the mood for the high energy show. Five of the songs from the movie were featured in the show. Tarzan Rocks closed at Animal Kingdom on January 21, 2006, and the show was then used as the basis for a new similar show at Tokyo Disneyland. Following its closure, the Theater in the Wild was completely renovated for a new show opening in November 2006.
