Walt Disney World is filled with many attractions from thrill rides such as Expedition Everest to family-friendly attractions such as Peter Pan’s Flight. One of the most popular attractions at Walt Disney World is the Kilimanjaro Safaris, which allows Guests to board a ride vehicle as they are brought on a tour through the safaris at the Disney Park.
While aboard the Kilimanjaro Safaris, Disney Guests can spot several different animals including hippos, bongos, flamingos, lions, giraffes, rhinos, and more!
When riding Kilimanjaro Safaris recently, Guests felt as though they were on Kali River Rapids instead as a severe storm rolled in.
Disney World Guests ended up getting soaked while riding Kilimanjaro Safaris as an unexpected storm rolled in, with high winds and downpouring rain.
TikTok user dvc_park_hoppers caught the vent on camera and shared a video to social media, along with the caption:
I thought we were on the safari? #monsoon #thunderstorm #fyp #noanimals #flood #disneyparkstiktok #disney #wet
More on Kilimanjaro Safaris
Over the years, the Kilimanjaro Safaris at Disney’s Animal Kingdom have changed and developed to keep up with the times. One of the major changes the Disney World ride has made involves real life rifles!
When the ride first opened in 1998, drivers would use the rifles and pretend to shoot them at fake poachers, but the entire storyline has since been scrapped and is no longer part of the current version of Kilimanjaro Safaris.
