Koala Canyon Spotlight

Recommended Posts

It looks like it was a great area for kids. I never even knew the area existed until reading about it on this site since I never went into the Adventure Rivers section of the park. Sesame Place used to have a giant area of those same type of punching bags and I remember it being fun to run through them.

He might be mobile. I just had the same issue.

 

Had to open it via full site mode.

Saw the Crocodile from this during the Nitro ROTB tour.  I also answered the trivia question about it.  Very interesting to see it after so many years.

This article from October 1991 confirms that Koala Canyon was suppose to be expanded after the first season.  The photos below support those plans.  Too bad it never materialized.

Does anything on the footprint of Koala Canyon actually remain to this day? (i.e. water pumps, concrete, etc.) Or is there no trace of it?

 It’s been completely removed. The only thing that really marks the area is a big circular plot of sand.   If you go to the men’s room in Looney Tunes Seaport you can see the area over the fence near the restroom entrance.

looking at this area on google map, its look like a great place to put in a water dark ride theme to the looney tunes

they could go something like the former looney tunes river ride at warner bros movie world
