Hey, check out the fantastic POP art that I just got. It's the shuttered Mr. Dolphin aerial ride.

Guess who the artist is?

Tiki Central's very own TikiG !!

Did you know that the "South Seas Island" at the tip of Pacific Ocean Park became an honorary member of the Samoan Islands during a dedication and ceremony held on Thursday, July 10, 1958?

This is a piece of Polynesian pop-culture history worth documenting here on Tiki Central Enjoy!

GREAT find! I soooo could have used this info to flesh out the P.O.P. page in the BOT! Which doesn't mean I still could use for a future book.

From the Los Angeles Public Library Collection. Photograph dated July 18, 1958. Bonnie Manchester and Virginia Nelson walk up to a South Seas adventure on the South Seas Island section of Pacific Ocean Park. The entrance is under a South Seas Island Polynesian Island stilt house.


Photograph caption dated July 19, 1958 reads, "One of the most picturesque rides of the park is the trip through jungle lands on a banana train. Visitors see "wild animals," enter a "live" volcano and ride through a tropical storm."

That was awesome !! Thanks King Bushwich. I really appreciated the "behind the scenes" of King Neptune's Lair. That was very valuable historical footage of POP.

1961 photo of the coconut throw at POP. You can see some tikis in the picture.



The banana train ride is called the US Rubber Train Ride in this photo.
