Tarzan’s Treehouse Closed at Disneyland After Incident Involving Slat Breaking on Suspension Bridge

On Sunday a guest jumping on the suspension caused a slat to break causing Tarzan’s Treehouse to be closed. Disneyland officials have confirmed that nobody was injured. DAPS MAGIC team member Roger was at the Disneyland Resort shortly after the incident and took these pictures of the damaged suspension bridge.

According to MiceChat, the incident happened when a father was jumping on the bridge to prove to his kids that it wouldn’t break. However, this did cause one of the slats to break. The attraction was evacuated and closed for the rest of the evening. By Monday morning, the slat had been fixed and the attraction was again open for guests to enjoy.

Tarzan’s Treehouse originally opened as the Swiss Family Treehouse on November 18, 1962, in Adventureland. It was made to recreate the home built in the Disney movie two years earlier Swiss Family Robinson. In 1999, this attraction was closed at Disneyland and rethemed to be Tarzan’s Treehouse.

Tarzan’s Treehouse is 80 feet tall. It features 6,000 vinyl leaves. It is also 150 tons. It still features some nods to the original attraction. one sign says “Mind they Head” and the Swiss Family Robinson Polka can also be heard while walking through the attraction. Many of the living areas were just tweaked to a Tarzan theme and retained the foundations of the original attraction.

When the Magic Kingdom opened in 1971, it also featured the Swiss Family Treehouse. A walkthrough of that along with this walkthrough of Tarzan’s Treehouse gives a general idea of the similarities and differences between the two attractions. While the two Swiss Family Treehouse’s were identical, they were very similar and gives a decent feel for how things have changed.
