Disneyland premises are understandably overwhelming with lipstick boys – from one father accidentally cutting his own children from photoshop with Buzz Lightyear. who makes some suitable sages while he records a person jumping from the Great Mountain Mountain Railroad to retrieve his lost phone.
Rarely, however, do they cause all day attractions to be closed. Still, a parent with something to prove has triggered a similar incident Sunday afternoon.
Father led his children to the jungle attraction, Treehouse. Constructed at 80 feet tall, the winding staircases of the tree house eventually rise to a rope bridge for guests to wander carefully across. A witness told a Disney MiceChat blog that they saw the man forcefully jump on the bridge to demonstrate to his children that he would not break.
