The newest attraction-turned-movie from Disney is Jungle Cruise, and it’s scheduled to hit theaters in late July. If you don’t think you can wait until then, we’ve got good news. There’s also a new game coming in June 2020, and it’s based on a mix of the movie and the ride. We got a sneak peek, and not only does it sound like tons of fun for your next family game night, but there’s a special catch for Disney super fans! Keep reading to find out more.
What about the game?
Use your riverboat to transport your passengers (four families, one of which will be your new boss as overseers of the Jungle Navigation Company) and cargo safely through the jungle while overcoming challenges and obstacles. Will you get the right family to the right spot? That’s up for you to figure out, so be careful who you drop ashore before you reach your destination! Fans of the ride will recognize the boat captain’s punny jokes and the ride’s famous landmarks. For two to four players, ages eight and up, it'll have a retail price of $29.99.
So, what's the catch?
While at Toy Fair 2020, we were let in on a little secret—there will be TWO versions of the Jungle Cruise Adventure Game. One will only be available at the gift shops near the Jungle Cruise rides at Disneyland and Disneyworld, and the other one will be available for purchase pretty much everywhere else. The special edition will have a different board layout and different board and box illustrations for a unique collector’s item!
