  • A deadly river (but not today)
  • A monarchy ran by animals
  • A giant kitchen appliance

Contrary to many answers I received, this place, sadly, does not exist in real life.

Big Hint:

All three statements refer to a connected world.

Very Big Hint:

The river is not deadly due to a special occasion.

Final Hint:

Why is the kitchen appliance big? To hold big things of course!

    $\begingroup$ Could this maybe need the knowledge tag, if it potentially has to do with movies, TV shows, etc.? $\endgroup$ – gnovice Jun 4 '18 at 16:41

    $\begingroup$ no, in fact this is something lots of Puzzle SE viewers know about :) It's right up their alley, after all. $\endgroup$ – Minh Tran Jun 4 '18 at 16:42
  • $\begingroup$ Just a thought, is the second line related to a rot13(orr uvir)? Thanks. $\endgroup$ – Gustavo Gabriel Jun 4 '18 at 18:49

I can find them all in

A joke/riddle Each of the answers refers to a part of a classic lateral thinking puzzle, as explained here

A deadly river (but not today)

Q: You need to cross a river but it is inhabited by crocodiles. You don’t have a boat but you do have a refrigerator. What should you do? A Swim across, as the crocodiles are all at the lion's conference.

A monarchy ran by animals

Q: The Lion King is hosting an animal conference. All of the animals attend, except for one. Which animal does not attend? A: The elephant in the refrigerator

A giant kitchen appliance

Q: How do you put a giraffe into a refrigerator? A: Open the door, put in the giraffe, and close the door. Q: How do you put an elephant into a refrigerator? A: Open the door, take out the giraffe, put in the elephant, and close the door.

    $\begingroup$ The answers should probably be in reverse order though. $\endgroup$ – Ertai87 Jun 5 '18 at 13:13
  • $\begingroup$ It appears that this puzzle has a significant requirement on prior knowledge / trivia. :/ $\endgroup$ – Ian MacDonald Jun 5 '18 at 14:19

    $\begingroup$ well, why should the Amazon river not deadly today? Wrong answer :) $\endgroup$ – Minh Tran Jun 4 '18 at 16:22
  • $\begingroup$ how is that a kitchen appliance? $\endgroup$ – Jordan.J.D Jun 4 '18 at 20:47
  • $\begingroup$ @Jordan.J.D It doesn't say "is", it says "where", and Amazon.com could certainly allow you to purchase a large kitchen appliance. $\endgroup$ – blurry Jun 5 '18 at 15:19

Probably

in disney films

A deadly river (but not today)

in hercules

A monarchy ran by animals

in the lion king

A giant kitchen appliance

in mickey and the beanstalk

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ Wrong :) Again, why should the river not deadly today? $\endgroup$ – Minh Tran Jun 4 '18 at 17:52

  • $\begingroup$ Well, you should also be able cross the river in the riddle too ;) also, a big hint: all three questions refer to one connected world. $\endgroup$ – Minh Tran Jun 4 '18 at 18:02
  • $\begingroup$ Also, one of your answers accidentally was the correct one :) figure out which one is it and go from there $\endgroup$ – Minh Tran Jun 4 '18 at 19:01

It's a stretch but:

Deschutes County, OR

A deadly river (but not today)

Lava River Cave Located in Deschutes, once this cave was deadly but not today.

A monarchy ran by animals

Possibly Lions Lake, related to how Lions are kings.

A giant kitchen appliance

Newberry Volcano, A volcano (Giant stove?)

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ You got the lion correct :) But no, this is not the answer, for the river is usually deadly but not deadly today. $\endgroup$ – Minh Tran Jun 4 '18 at 19:40

This is a shot in the dark here, but are they all in

The Pride Lands from The Lion King?

I'm sure my responses are wrong here, but here it goes:

A deadly river (but not today)

Is this referring to the watering hole where Simba sings, "Oh I just can't to be King" and Zazu is almost killed? Or perhaps the Elephant Graveyard?

A monarchy ran by animals

The kingdom is run by Lions

A giant kitchen appliance

Is this referencing Pride Rock, which may resemble a giant can opener?

Hint:

All three statements refer to a connected world. These are all in the same workd

Also, referring to one of the comments you made,

one of the answers accidentally got the right idea for the second line actually, which refers to Kant1's answer that a monarchy ran by animals was referring to the lion king.

    $\begingroup$ Hmm, good guess, but notice how the riddle is tagged 'lateral-thinking' ? Also, quite a reach with your third statement there :) $\endgroup$ – Minh Tran Jun 4 '18 at 19:53
  • $\begingroup$ I thought that was a pretty lateral way of thinking with the last clue. $\endgroup$ – Joe-You-Know Jun 4 '18 at 19:54
