Those fighting crabs aren’t going to ISO 9001 certify themselves, after all.


No giant squid? I am disappointed with Disney.


I’m glad I got to see this and the other one at Disneyland as a kid.
There are cool wiki pages for both -


Perhaps that was on page two?


Disappointed. I clicked on the article expecting the check list for the real captain Nemo’s submarine

I loved this ride as a kid. Very cool to see this checklist. I hope Single Lobster found someone to spend retirement with.
