Tarzan’s Treehouse:

Disneyland version
In February 1999, Disneyland closed its version of the Swiss Family Treehouse, and Imagineers re-themed the attraction to coincide with the soon to be released Tarzan film. The giant artificial tree received a comprehensive makeover, including 6,000 replacement vinyl leaves, a suspension bridge entrance from a new neighboring tree, and a variety of hands-on interactive features. The tree is currently 70 feet tall and weighs 150 pounds. On June 23, 1999, Tarzan’s Treehouse began welcoming park guests, just as Disney’s animated Tarzan premiered in movie theaters. Tributes to the Swiss Family Treehouse are featured in the attraction including the “Mind Thy Head” sign and the “Swisskapolka”, which can be heard playing on a vintage gramophone.

Hong Kong Disneyland Version
When Hong Kong Disneyland opened on September 12, 2005 it included Tarzan’s Treehouse built on Tarzan’s Island. Rafts are used to ferry passengers to and from the island, which is encircled by the Rivers of Adventure. This is a similar arrangement to Disneyland’s Tom Sawyer Island.
