June 23, 1999 – The Adventureland Attraction Tarzan’s Treehouse Opens in Disneyland
“Tour Tarzan’s jungle home – built aloft in an 80-foot tall tree – and see what it’s like to live on the wild side!”
On June 23, 1999, the Adventureland attraction Tarzan’s Treehouse opened in Disneyland. It replaced the Swiss Family Treehouse that has been in Disneyland since 1962, and was based on the 1999 animated feature film. To recreate the feel of the film, the staircase was rebuilt to resemble parts of a shipwreck, and the houses include scenes from the life of the title character. At the top of the attraction, guests are able to view all of Adventureland; at the base of the attraction, an area is set up for children to play and interact. The attraction was also recreated at Hong Kong Disneyland, and opened on September 12, 2005.
