Sunday Spotlight: Tarzan’s Treehouse

Tarzan’s Treehouse is a walk-through attraction in Adventureland at Disneyland. This massive tree is a re-imagining of what was originally the Swiss Family Treehouse. The tree itself is 80 feet tall. It has 450 branches and 6,000 leaves on it! The treehouse itself was constructed from parts of salvaged from Tarzan’s shipwreck. It is an adventure (and a workout) to climb through. It also has some of the most stunning views to be found at Disneyland. There are some beautiful views over Adventureland, the Rivers of America, and New Orlean’s Square!

The Swiss Family Treehouse originally opened in 1962 at Disneyland. This was two years after the film from which it was inspired was released. The attraction was closed in March of 1999. It underwent a remodel to theme it around the Disney animated feature, Tarzan. It opened with this new storyline in June of 1999. Since then, fans have been able to explore the tree in the jungle where Tarzan grew up.

Recently, the DAPS MAGIC team did a walk-through video of Tarzan’s Treehouse for Sundays with DAPs. Take a look at the video below.
