The ride has been updated many times over the years, most notably in 1997 and 2002.
In 1997, the queue was redesigned to resemble a forest and the scene featuring a kraken was replaced with sword-fighting crocodiles. In 2002, the scene with the rickshaw in the snow was replaced with a treasure room, and also saw the addition of an entirely new audio system which put the original on-board one out of commission.
Still regularly scenes are edited with new masks and clothing for the animatronics or new lighting.
