Jungle (also known as Amazon) was an Adventurers subtheme released in 1999. Like the other Adventurers themes it lasted for only a year and showcased a wide variety of new pieces and minifigures. It was also featured in LEGO Racers (game) as a track and some of the characters were racers. This sub-theme, however, was the smallest of the Adventures sub-themes.
The Adventurers have headed to the jungle to find the ancient Sun Disc, a powerful artifact protected by the mysterious Achu. The Adventurers are also pitted against Señor Palomar and Rudo Villano, who are also attempting to find the disc. Both factions strive to collect the treasures for different reasons. The Adventurers for historical preservation and the other for fame and money.
