Jumping around a bit here.  Just came on the Expo '92 drawings.  Bob and Rich did a great job on this one beginning the project in 1987. I loved the trip to Seville, 1988, even though I had to sit on stones in an outdoor theater that dated back to the 1600's and watch a…

Before boarding ride

Before boarding ride | Lottie Pop Pinwheels by Gustavo | Scoop.it
Stuck in a box of Six Flags treasures, this sign reminds us to Always secure loose articles before boarding rides (any rides, I'm sure). Freehand sign by that most wonderful artist J.R. "Bob" Minick, Sr.  He was a great talent.  Bob followed his lead as is Randall, with Rich's tutorage.  Not in a box anymore.

OK, this guy scared me then and now.  And I wasn't a big fan of the Mexican Hat Ride perhaps because I threw up after my first ride.  But I did love how it was themed.  Is there a manufacturer who still makes this ride?  If so I'm going to talk to Rich about adding…
