I started to post this to the "Tiki Coaster" thread in Collecting Tiki, but that was just too off topic...

Tangaroa, I had found a picture of a map of Nara Dreamland, a Japanese Disneyland knock-off, with what looks like a Tiki-fied waterslide or rollercoaster in their version of Adventureland. I haven't been able to find any better pictures, & now I can't seem to find the original map image that sent me on this quest, have you heard of this before?

I thought it was this picture, but now I'm not seeing the Tiki that I saw so clearly before:



Here's a picture of their Adventureland map:

Well - I could scan in the guidebook (which I gotta find) - but based on your photos - here's a good starting point:

Yes - it's a creepily accurate recreation of Disneyland... Kinda like a bizarro version of it. I don't know of any tiki stuff though - just a 60s era recreation of the Jungle Cruise....


and of course you can try & navigate through their home page:
