Project Review: Project Meadow Bug Tunnels

The Tree-fort Bug Tunnel that is in the air surrounding the coaster.

The Underground Tunnel filled with Cocoons, Web-Funnels and BUGS!

Creepy Crawly Bug Tunnels!

Client: Walt Disney Imagineering.
Art Director: Myself.
Project Date Spring 1997.

While working for the Paris team at Walt Disney Imagineering in the mid-nineties, I helped develop the look of a roller coaster E-Ticket attraction for Adventureland and this was the "Bug Tunnel" feature you see above.

During the Tunnel portion of the ride you are on your back looking up in this unique roller coaster where for the rest of the ride you hang underneath the tracks, so while on your back we wanted you to squirm a bit. The bug tunnel was designed in the air for the Irian-Jaya tree people tree forts, as well as an underground tunnel too. Icky!

Cheers, THOM
