Disneyland Treehouse Mishap When Dad Jumps On Suspension Bridge

It happened on Sunday evening at Disneyland Park in Anaheim, California, while a dad was trying to prove to his child that the suspension bridge in the Tarzan Treehouse attraction was sturdy and wouldn't break. As he jumped on the wood planks of the suspension bridge, one of them gave way and snapped.

One Twitter observer posted the images and wrote "Some parent was jumping on the rope bridge on Tarzan’s Treehouse in DLR to show his kids that it was sturdy AND BROKE IT. I WAS WAITING FOR THIS TO HAPPEN EVENTUALLY."

Fortunately, no one was injured and park employees quickly ushered guests out of the attraction so that it could be closed and repaired. Tarzan's Treehouse was operational the following morning when the park opened. Disneyland officials have not confirmed the cause of the mishap, but all appears to be back to normal at the Happiest Place on Earth.

The treehouse officially opened in Disneyland's Adentureland on November 18, 1962 as the "Swiss Family Robinson" Treehouse but was revamped and renamed in 1999 to coincide with Disney's animated film "Tarzan".
