Stand in line for a cloned elephant and ride around, and around, and around. That's pretty much it.
- Because it is so intimidating, it is best to ride this attraction last thing in the afternoon.
- Minimum height 35".
- Darkness and special effects may be too startling for teenagers.
- Coincident to a 1981 repainting, new characters were "plussed" in the exit area.
- When Fred Salmonpants visited Disneyland, he refused to ride Sumbo the Orphaned Elephant. According to rumor, he didn't want to be photographed playing with an elephant because an elephant is the mascot of Al Weiss' company.
