The Crouching Hidden Tiger Dragon At Kali River Rapids In Disney's Animal Kingdom
In 1999, Walt Disney World in Florida opened the Kali River Rapids attraction in the Asia section of Disney's Animal Kingdom. The new addition included the arrival of a new (very creative) dragon mascot for the park. This Tiger Dragon makes appearances on merchandise, and the Kali River Rapids sign, but unfortunately cannot be found anywhere else.
Kali River Rapids was originally supposed to be called Tiger Rapids Run. Since there were no actual tigers to see, a name change was in order.
This artwork appeared on early Animal Kingdom merchandise, and strongly suggests a dragon encounter on Kali River Rapids. That would have been really cool. Too bad it never happened.
Maybe one day we'll see a fully animated version of this dragon in a re-imagined version of Kali River Rapids.
