Adventure Isle - Part 1
One of the largest attractions in
Adventureland at Disneyland Paris is the area called Adventure Isle.
Based on a similar concept to Tom Sawyer
Island but without the boat crossing, it is a place to wander and to
explore. The area actually consists of a number of attractions that
include Captain Hooks Pirate Ship, Skull Rock and the Swiss Family
Robinson Tree house. For Part one of this two part report, I will
concentrate on the area around Spyglass Hill, Pirate’s Grotto and
Situated in the centre of Adventureland and
next to Pirates of the Caribbean, Adventure Isle and Skull Rock form an
Moored next to Skull Rock you find Captain
Hooks Pirate ship and a children’s play area called Pirates Beach,
this area is a recent addition to the park and give the kids somewhere
to run wild.
Skull Rock is a great piece of Imagineering,
made to look like it has been cut from solid rock, the face on the skull
peers out across the Adventureland lagoon, water spilling through the
teeth in it's open mouth.
Deep inside the skull visitors look out from
the hollow eyes and mouth.
