Alice In Wonderland - Before the Safety Fence

Alice in Wonderland ride Disneyland
Alice in Wonderland is a Disneyland treasure, and my favorite black-light dark ride.

This photo was taken a couple of years ago, before the safety fencing was added to the upper outdoor section of track. The meandering downhill vine-path used to provide a visual thrill, as the caterpillar cars would seem to be heading right off the edge of the track before turning in another direction. It was like a gentle wild-mouse ride.

The dark ride portions are still great, but the safety fence has muted the visual fun of the outdoor descent. The good news: the outdoor track's about to get a major overhaul including a new, permanent re-work of the fencing. Hopefully, the new look will blend the fence more naturally into the whimsical setting and bring more fun back to the outdoor track.

One more pre-fence view, this one from 1994:

  1. Thanks alot for this great post. I'm not much into reading blogs but I found yours via google when searching for how to Hi-Street Safety Fence for children and this is a great, easy solution that I can't wait to do.. I hope today and stop my 2 year old from going out the end of our yard into the alley, Bushes block majority but theres about 6 feet of open space.

  2. This evening the kids got home from spending a week with Mark and they were delighted and excited to be home. wood privacy fence cost
