Disneyland Singapore Resort - Neverland 2005


As guests enter Neverland they encounter a clearing in the dense jungles. The Misty Mountains draws guests into Journey in Neverland. Adjacent to the Misty Mountains there is an area with large stones moved around seeming to make an outcropping. Here is where Pan Outcropping is located, and is the meet & greet location for Peter Pan and Wendy. Across Pan Outcropping located inside Hangman's Tree is Lost Boy Goods where guests can buy merchandise based off Peter Pan. Continuing along the main path guests encounter Captain Hook's Galley docked in Pirates Cove. Upon entering guests can dine on seafood such as shrimp, lobster, and more delectable delicacies. Occasionally throughout the day Captain Hook and Mr Smee will be found wandering outside the ship. As guests approach the outskirts of Neverland they approach Skull Rock. Occasionally if guests are brave enough they will find that pirates have invaded Skull Rock and are now calling it home.

As guests go past a sign marking the entrance to Journey in Neverland they enter a cave. As guests go through the queue they enter a chamber with glow in the dark moss. Guests will go around a hidden spring that has steam rising out from it. Several mermaids will be sitting upon the rocks making jokes about the humans, and laughing. As guests near the exit of this chamber they approach a waterfall that a mermaid is sitting upon a rock hidden behind the waterfall. She will occasionally ask the guests is they will to go for an endless swim, or perhaps a relaxing sleep in the water. Occasionally the waterfall will stop to reveal the mermaid is the same mermaid that attempted to drown Wendy.

As guests enter a new chamber they see various lanterns hanging from the ceiling. Several of the lostboys's weapons will be scattered around. As guests approach the center of the room they see Wendy sitting upon a rock. See will welcome guests to Misty Mountain Caves. She will explain that Tinker Bell has brought her, and everyone here from the mainland. She will proceed to explain that Peter Pan has been kidnapped by Captain Hook, and that Hangman Tree has been invaded by his crew. Forcing the Lost Boys and Tinker Bell to hide in the caves. She will then say that they have a plan to find Peter, and stop Hook. Tinker Bell makes her bell noise, and Wendy informs everyone that the Lost Boys, John, and Michael have all gone ahead to find Peter. Then she tells everyone that it is time to go out, and look for Peter.

While Micheal is seen holding on to Teddy, and ocasionally yells out for Peter Pan. Guests then turn around to find themselves in the heart of a jungle, and on a riverbank. Cubby tells guests to watch out, but its too late. A splash is heard, and guests are now "floating" in a river. A slight mist will spray at guests. The vehicles will then simulate floating. The Twins are seen holding onto one's tail, and the other holding onto a log that's floating away with their only source of light a lantern. Tootles, Nib, and Slightly are all seen with a scared look on their face. Slightly then says look out!

Guests bump into a rock as a constant roaring is heard. A bear that has been rudely awaken is seen growling at guests. His paw is outreach, and he will occasionally try to hit guests. Eventually as the guests get closer they are hit, and the vehicle shakes and spins. They hear someone yelling to grab them before they go down the waterfall. However it is too late.

Scene 2 - Down, and Down

As they fall they get closer, and closer to skull rock, and in the distance Mermaid Lagoon. Wendy, and Tinker Bell will eventually appear on screen. Wendy will urge Tinker Bell to use pixie dust, and Tinker Bell will throw Pixie dust at guests. However one thing is wrong the guests aren't thinking happy thoughts! Wendy warns the guests, but it'll be too late as guests hit the ocean. Guests are then sprayed with a mist, as they spin into the next scene.

Scene 3 - Tick Tock
As guests spin into the ocean, and begin to float they are face to face with Skull Rock. The vehicles will once again simulate floating, and the occasional wave. Guests will bump into various stones. Eventually the vehicles will find a crocodile tail coming out of the water. As the vehicles continue o float they see Tic Toc Croc reaching out for a bite. Occasionally snapping his jaws towards guests.


Scene 4 - Mermaid Lagoon
Guests once again face a screen this time they are floating in the lovely Mermaid Lagoon in the moonlight of Neverland. As guests take in the beauty of this scene they can see a tail pop out from the water. Suddenly a mermaid can be heard saying that the guests had accepted their offer from earlier. Several mermaid heads pop out as they start to grab the vehicle, and shake it trying to guests underwater. Occasionally guests will be sprayed with a slight mist. A loud screech will be heard as a rather large flies into view. As the bird approaches guests will be able to see that it's claws are outstretched to grab the guests. The bird grabs the guests. The screen now shows guests flying high in the Neverland Skies. The vehicles will simulate flying. The Neverland Bird will then land, and once it does the guests will enter the next scene.

Scene 5 - Red Men 
Guests are now met with Tiger Lily's tribe dancing and singing Native American songs. Guests will be thrown into the middle of the scene from the film albeit minus Peter and Co.

Scene 6 - Peter is Found
As guests turn a corner Wendy appears. She tells the guests that they have found Peter Pan on Hook's Ship, and the Lost Boys have boarded the ship with help of Tinker Bell. She then tells guests that Tinker Bell will help the guests get over there right now. Tinker Bell's bells are heard ringing as Pixie Dust covers the vehicle. The vehicles suddenly feel like they're flying as they move to the next scene aboard the Jolly Rodger. 

Scene 7 - Jolly Roger
As the guests arrive they see all the pirates are tied up except Captain Hook. Captain Hook is seen on the plank forced there by the Lost Boys. As the vehicles approach the plank they see Captain Hook in tears begging for mercy. The Lost Boys are laughing at the Captain as the guests notice the reason he doesn't want to go swimming is that Tic Toc Croc is waiting below with his mouth wide open waiting. Peter is seen steering the ship. The vehicle proceeds to the Captain Quarters where Wendy, Michael, and John are seen. Wendy thanks guests as the vehicles arrive at the unloading station.

The Skull Rock Theater presents A Pirate Jamboree

The Theater -

As guests enter the lobby they see various human skeletons dressed in pirates attire set up throughout the room. Various worn out pirate banners, and flags are hanging from the ceiling. Torches being held on the walls light up the lobby. A rather large treasure map of Neverland is held upon a wall. Various telescopes, cutlasses, and compasses are thrown around the lobby. Several treasure chests are seen throughout the room with one open, and the only things inside are plenty of golden doubloons. Ominous music plays in the lobby while the guests wait to be admitted into the theater.

As guests enter the theater they see seats made of wood, and having various cushions for the guests's bottoms. Tall stone walls go around the room. These walls seem wide enough for people to walk upon, and several canons are located on various parts of the wall. From the ceiling hang rather large pirate flags adorned with pirate skulls. These pirate flags act as screens that change appearance for the opening musical number. Two large masts are adorned on the stage holding up the three main pirate flags in the theater. Piles of treasure are on this segment of the stage. The stage is rather large and allows for great music numbers. Lastly there are four Captain Quarters throughout the stage. The first two on the main stage, and the other two on the walls with the walkways. As the show ends the exit doors open to let guests out, and into the last part of Skull Rock Caves where an animatronic of Tic-Toc Croc is sprawled upon the floor far from guest's reach. His eyes and tail will move both with every tic.

Show Script -

As all the guests settle in, and all ways in and out close the lights begin to dim. Soon pirates carrying flags, and cleaning supplies come out. They then begin to mop the deck, and the music begins. They soon break into dance waving the flags, and cleaning extra hard think of them like the Arrendelle Flag Wavers and The Grave Diggers.

♪♪♪ Pirates: Shiver my timbers, shiver my soul
Yo oh heave ho
There are men whose hearts as as black as coal
Yo oh heave ho

(The projectors soon come to life. The flags are soon overcome with stoneheads, crabs, an octopus, crocodiles, lobsters, monkeys, and lastly a human skull center staged)

Skull & Assorted Things : And they sailed their ship cross the ocean blue
A blood-thirsty captain and a cut-throat crew
It's as dark a tale as was ever told
Of the lust for treasure and the love of gold
Pirates: Shiver my timbers, shiver my sides
Yo oh heave ho
There are hungers as strong as the wind and tides
Yo oh heave ho
Skull & Assorted Things: And those buccaneers drowned their sins in rum
The devil himself would have to call them scum
Every man aboard would have killed his mate
For a bag of guineas or a piece of eight
A piece of eight
A piece of eight
Hulla wacka ulla wacka something not right
Many wicked icky things gonna happen tonight
Hulla wacka ulla wacka sailor man beware
When de money in the ground dere's murder in de air
Murder in de air
One more time now
Pirates: Shiver my timbers, shiver my bones
Yo oh heave ho
There are secrets that sleep with old Davy Jones
Yo oh heave ho
Skull & Assorted Things: When the mainsail's set and the anchor's weighed
There's no turning back from any course that's laid
And when greed and villainy sail the sea
You can bet your boots there'll be treachery
Pirates: Shiver my timbers, shiver my sails
Dead men tell no tales ♪♪♪

Pirate #1: Oh ya? What's so good about it!
Mr. Smee: Well you see our Captain has found a marvelous treasure map, and will lead us to it. So I want this deck cleaned. Please?
Pirate #2: Fine! Now Smee go away your only dirtying up the deck!
(Mr. Smee walks away annoyed into the right Captain Quarters)

(The pirates finish cleaning, and begin to start singing and dancing)

(The brides from POTC come out from the left Captain Quarters rolling in a midnight buffet table. On top the table lays the redhead)


Brides: There are bingo games every fun-filled day
Red Head: And Margaritas at the midnight buffet

(The Red Head, and the rest of the Brides approach the front of the stage where all the treasure is located)

(A battle ensues. Captain Hook, Mr. Smee, and a few of his own pirates fighting on the main stage against Long John Silver, and some of his crew. While both sides of the canons are now being used, and fired. Every time one is fired smoke comes out from the ship)
Pirate #3: Mr.Silver, sir! If we don't retreat now we'll surely sink, and lose our way home!
Long John Silver: Very well then! Men retreat to our ship, and you Captain! I have underestimated you, but if we meet again you will surely fall!
