May 21st 1998
Dick Dale has done the unbelievable, he has done what no other person has ever done, nor been allowed to do, in the history of Disneyland.
Being the thrill seeker and not being one to back down from a challenge, Dick Dale climbed a steel ladder mounted to the side of "Disneyland's Space Mountain."
Dale climbed to the very top and stood with his Fender Stratocaster guitar, "The Beast", and played Ghost Riders
on an eight foot by eight foot platform without the use of a safety harness and only a guide wire to keep Dale from going off the platform.
Dale said, standing above everyone and looking directing across at "The Matterhorn" was the most titanic venture he has ever done in his life. "It can't get any better then this," Dale screamed to the sky above.
Dick Dale's quote to the audience was "First there was the Matterhorn, then there was Tinkerbell, then there was Space Mountain. Now there is Dick Dale on top of Tomorrowland!"
