I have made threads based on eBay actions before, but this is just TOO good to pass up.
This huge centerpiece rocket was modeled after the Saturn V rocket of the Apollo missions, and was surrounded by several small "rockets" in which Disneyland guests could ride, controlling their altitude individually with a center yoke. This rocket circled above Tomorrowland from July 1967 until January 1997, when the ride was dismantled by Disneyland during the redesign of Tomorrowland. It was later sold to a Disney collector. The rocket is massive – over 30 ft in length, and exhibits general wear consistent with long term operation and handling. A wonderful piece of Disneyland history. Buyer to pay for transportation of rocket. Interested bidders please note: pick-up and shipping from its current location will require that the piece be lifted with a commercial crane. $20,000 - $30,000
Here is your chance to own a GIGANTIC piece of Disneyland history! Reclaim the true centerpiece of Tomorrowland!
