Fascinating stories

I had the chance to meet Bob Gurr recently. Now 73, Bob is something of a legend in the amusement park arena. He was the principal designer on all sorts of rides and attractions that you have either heard of or ridden on yourself. He started his career at Disney, where he worked on everything from the monorails to Abe Lincoln. Later in life he has done all sorts of stuff, including dinosaurs for movies and the sinking pirate ships on the strip in Vegas.

He has a fascinating series of about 60 articles online that you may find interesting. They talk about many of the projects he has worked on over the years. You can find them here:

Is that the creepy bald guy from the 6 Flags ads?
