Tokyo Dumbo


Tokyo's Dumbo attraction has almost the same design as Disneyland's first Dumbo ride. It is the last park to still have this version. There is no water below. There is no "kinetic" structure at it's center. Timothy Mouse still stands proud on a mirrored ball, smiling with glee as he leans forward to "whip" the team of flying elephants below him. How un-PC is that? I'm hoping that Tokyo never updates this attraction! Okay, they can take away Timothy's whip and give him the more politically correct "magic crow's feather", but please don't take away his disco ball!
