Disney California Adventure 101: Grizzly Peak

Grizzly-Peak1Walt Disney on respecting nature: “Physical America — the land itself — should be as dear to us all as our political heritage and our treasured way of life. Its preservation and the wise conservation of its renewable resources concerns every man, woman and child whose possession it is.”

Overview: Grizzly Peak takes Disney California Adventure Park guests to rugged Gold Rush country. The rocky mountain summit looks like a grizzly bear roaring into the sky, but the beast is much more than a pretty face. The history of the mountain is a combination of legend and Disney imagination. The tale goes like this: A long, long time ago, a coyote met a grizzly bear at the top of the mountain and asked the bear to protect the land. One day, people came to the mountain to chase the grizzly bear down, but the bear held his ground. The coyote turned the grizzly bear into stone so that the bear could never be driven away. Today, some observant mountaineers claim they can hear the bear’s spirit when rafting through the windy caverns of Grizzly Peak.

Universal Studios Singapore Debuts Two Shows

CIMG0293It was a typical visit to Universal Studios Singapore (USS), and I found myself walking by the Hollywood Pantages Theatre, as I have done a dozen times before. I usually skip this attraction completely. Yet, on this very day, I felt a very strong urge to go in and watch the show. I later learned that Monster Rock, a rock and roll-themed musical was closed on 1 September.

It is notable that USS did not make any major announcements about this closure, except a small excerpt on its website. Perhaps it is because USS has bigger plans in store for the theatre and the Sesame Street show is just an interim.
