Legends of the Wild West
Disneyland Paris has several attractions
that are similar, or in some cases identical, to those found in
Disneyland and Walt Disney World. One example of this is 'The Legends of
the Wild West' attraction.
Although the attraction in this form is
unique to Paris, you can experience the same western theme in
Frontierland locations around the world. In Disneyland and Walt Disney
World, the forts you find on Tom Sawyer Island offer many of the same
concepts, if not the detail found in Paris.
At Disneyland Paris, rather than locate
the fort on an island surrounded by the Rivers of America, the
Imagineers have placed the attraction right at the entrance to
Frontierland, giving it a prominent and eye-catching position.
As you enter Frontierland, you pass under
one of the many walkways that form part the attraction. From these
walkways, visitors have a bird's eye view of other guests entering the
Wild West themed area of the park.
Most of this walkthrough attraction is
located on the upper floors of the buildings surrounding the entrance to
the Frontierland. It should be noted that it is not accessible to
physically disabled guests, as there is no elevator and many steps.
As you wander through the attraction, you
move between rooms with scenes showing how people lived in the past.
In the jailhouse, you will find a
prisoner in his cell waiting to be released.
In a room on the ground floor, a lone
gunman waits for his next victim.
