(Disneyland, 1961) Extremely rare original hand-silkscreened poster for the Disneyland Flying
Saucers attraction in Tomorrowland. Built in 1961, this was the last attraction to open in the original Tomorrowland. Guests floated on a cushion of air and controlled their “bumper” cars by leaning in the direction they wanted to go. The attraction was very popular, but suffered numerous mechanical problems, was expensive to operate, and could only handle a relatively small number of riders per day. The attraction closed in 1966 and was replaced by the Tomorrowland Stage in the “New Tomorrowland. This Rolly Crump designed attraction poster measures 54”x36”. Some slight creasing, scratches and scuffs throughout image, one small 1/4” x 1/2” area of color restoration on the left edge and lower corners. Tape on the back from previous framing. Overall, in very good to fine condition.
