Theme park apologizes for ‘racist’ safari cruise ride

One of the most popular theme parks in France has been forced to modify a popular ride after guests accused the attraction of being racist.

The Africa Cruise ride at Nigloland in north eastern France has been at the park for several decades, having first been installed in 1987. However, the popular attraction was sparked outcry after a video of the ride surfaced last week.

A park guest who goes by @Astrotoujours on Twitter posted a video of his experience, with a series of comments.

He said: “I went to Nigloland and saw that. I wanted to know if you found it normal??”

The footage showed a section of the cruise where there were two people climbing up a tree while an angry rhino is just beneath them.

One of the figures was white and wearing a colonial-style safari outfit while another, who was black, was wearing a fez and holding a bunch of bananas.
