Amusement Business Magazine

Welcome to Magazine Monday. I hope everyone has been enjoying Magazine Monday’s. Most of the magazines so far have been standard PR stuff in nationally known magazines. While I do have some of those types of magazines still to post, it's time to get down to the odd & obscure, and I got plenty of that!

This May 20th, 1967 edition of Amusement Business features a short but sweet article on the recently opened Pirates of the Caribbean. By short I mean two pages and one of them is this cover so enjoy it.

“Walt Disney’s “living” legacy, Disneyland at Anaheim, Calif.” Interesting how just 6 months after Walt’s passing he was already a “legacy”.  Jazz trumpeter Teddy Buckner and his group are on hand to and “expected to remain for the summer, at least”. According to Wikipedia (link), he stayed until 1981!

In the current events section there is another mention of Disneyland! The New Tomorrowland concept art looks great even in black & white.

Six Flags Over Georgia open June 16th! Check out that Von Roll gondola for the Sky Ride. 82 feet in the air is too high for me, the Skyway at Disneyland was my limit (actually, it was over my limit, but the view was worth the terror).

“Chance or skill” looks like someone got in trouble! Neat ’67 Mustang.

Now for some vintage advertisements. These are industry specific so they may be a little boring. Universal Design Limited made some funky rides! Did this company build Nara Dreamland (link)?

Mouse Rides - WOW!

Astro-turf type stuff for the miniature gold courses’. It must be good, look at those fancy chemicals!

These classified ads are pretty cool, look - used train cars!!!!

Last up (and not from the magazine) are a couple of photos of the “Royal Street Bachelors”. This first one is from a Disneyland Souvenir book from the early ‘80’s.

This is from a Pana-Vue souvenir slide (VP 70-50) that amazingly has not faded. It’s undated of course. Daveland has a photo of the gents from 1968 (link). Do they still play at N.O.S.?

I forget that the attraction has three different levels! It's sad to think that we'll probably never see another new attraction of the same caliber as Pirates of the Caribbean again.

Dutch Wonderland, that sounds like a real blast! You're right, that Monorail looks like the one at Nara Dreamland.

You can see the edge of the old One-of-a-Kind shop to the left of the Bachelors in the bottom photo. What a fun store that was!

TM: I guess I never counted the area after the first drop as a "level" but it sure is. Sad but true, Is Disney even capable of making something like POTC?

Major: Nara Dreamland haunts my nightmares...

Yellows; I loved that shop! There are still a few interesting shops (like the Crystal shop) but too many are standard stuff now. Oh, just reading your blog post from yesterday, fun stuff!

The gentlemen on the far right in the last photo still plays at Disneyland. He usually plays solo electric jazz guitar near the original (1967) location of Le Gourmet. He plays beautifully and I usually shoot some video when I see him.

Haven't seen the others since the 90's I think.

Thanks for another great post...

The Bachelors pic in front of the POC entrance was taken in 1975 or 1976, as they are wearing the Bicentennial nametag.. and the one in NOS is from 1977 or early 1978.. as they are wearing the "blue castle with stars" nametag, and not the classic "ta-dum" Mickey Mouse nametag that was introduced in May 1978.

Hi Nametag (love your blog), thanks for the proper dates, sometimes its hard to tell just by the quality of the pic. It's funny, since I posted this I keep seeing the "Bachelors" in other photos, its like they are following me :-)
