Howdy folks! Welcome to what could have been the one and only, original, Country Bear Jamboree dark ride, the Critter Country 500! Concept art for this attraction has been released from Kirk Hanson, showcasing a very different attraction for these bears instead of the beloved musical show. This ride would have been located in Disneyland where The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh attraction is currently, this replacing the Country Bear Show instead.
Henry and Sammy the raccoon looks like they would be your broadcasters for the race.
Gomer the beloved piano player would be in charge of steering this contraption for the race instead of tickling the ivories.
Ted swapped his corn jug for helping his vehicle that slightly resembles an outhouse. What else would we expect from what we know of the Country Bears though?
Some serious Wacky Races vibes…
Would you have rather seen a Country Bear ride rather than a show? Let us know in the comments and thanks for bearing with us to the bear end!
