I was one of those privileged to see this ride being built from the ground up, starting in 1975, as a CM there at the time.
After a period of economic recession and inflation, its construction was really a shot in the arm for our morale.
I really impressed a girl by taking her for a ride before it opened, and toward the end there was a brief breakdown and you got to see things with the lights on.
I remember hearing that the project was done on time, and came in under budget!
I was working in the park 30 years ago this day, and remember the lines snaking halfway back down Main Street.
Happy birthday to Disneyland's second "Mountain". Here's to at least 30 more years of thrills and great memories.
