From my pal "Mr. X" I bring you two more wonderful vintage snapshots that he generously gave to me.
Holy Toledo, what a crowded day! I've seen it worse, though. Mr. X liked to take photos from this vantage point, standing on a bench so that he was above the babushka'd heads of the multitudes. The Rocket Jets are up, the Peoplemover is showing off, and all in all the place looks great.
I should get out a map of the park so that I can determine whether Mr. X was in the very front or the very back of the Monorail when he took this photo. But that would involve effort, and I hate effort. OK, I lied, I looked at an old map, and it didn't really help much. I'm going to go ahead and say that he was sitting in front. Ah, I feel better now! Notice the Motor Boat Cruise down below.
