Click to enlarge 17 August 2011 Dear Royal Society of Tiki Bar Explorers (Los Angeles Chapter), The natives call it Anaheim. They believe it to be a Magic Kingdom with such fantastical creatures as a mouse schooled in the art of sorcery, an airborne train and a fiery red haired mermaid of unearthly beauty.

After bypassing the Matterhorn, an icy behemoth rising above all she surveys, we stumbled into an Ali Baba's cave of tiki cocktails from which I write you now -- Trader Sam's Enchanted Tiki Bar. In the shadow of hotel spires and a waterfall, one ascends up stairs onto a landing where a diver's helmet guards the door like a steely sentry. The natives were not merely friendly. Next, they offered me an Uh Oa, a small cauldron of rums and exotic spices (how has the New World not yet discovered this strange syrup Falernum?)

Snow White's Scary Adventures "Lumikin Pelottavat Seikkailut" Ever since Disney's Snow White started her frightening adventures in California's Disneyland in 1955, there has been heavy accusation against her dark ride and its counterparts in Disney theme parks. Parents say Snow White’s Scary Adventures is too scary for the little ones and complain the lack of furry critters and funny dwarfs. Others say the attraction is just boring. To appreciate Snow White’s Scary Adventures, one must return to the roots of Walt Disney's 1937 animated movie masterpiece Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

One must also know a little bit about the history of dark rides – and the "order of appearance" of the Snow White attractions and their remodeled versions. When seen through new eyes, even the most critical opponent might admit that Snow White’s Scary Adventures captures the darker essence of Disney's cinematic triumph most beautifully.
