Disneyland closed Tarzan’s Treehouse on Sunday afternoon after a wooden slat broke on one of the Adventureland attraction’s rope bridges suspended three stories above the ground. Nobody was injured on Tarzan’s Treehouse, according to Disneyland officials. The attraction is closed for the evening, officials said.

A Disneyland visitor who witnessed the Tarzan’s Treehouse incident on Sunday, Nov. 10, said a father broke the slat while jumping on the bridge to show his children the bridge wouldn’t break, according to MiceChat. The attraction was evacuated after the incident. Photos posted to social media show a broken slat on one of the rope bridges traversing Tarzan’s Treehouse attraction.

The 80-foot-tall Tarzan’s Treehouse opened in 1999 as a walk-through attraction with treehouse rooms fashioned from salvaged parts from a shipwreck, according to the attraction’s backstory. The Anaheim theme park’s original 1962 Swiss Family Treehouse featured concrete roots, steel limbs and 300,000 leaves.

Don't be fooled by appearances. In Hawaii, some of the most powerful people look like bums and stuntmen.

Good thing no one was hurt. That shouldn't take too long to fix.
