The TWA Rocket to the Moon is an icon of Disneyland’s early days. It was the centerpiece and crowning outer space touch of the original Tomorrowland, “the world of 1987.” But that wasn’t the only TWA Rocket to the Moon. I’m not talking about the smaller scale “tribute” to the original that stands in Tomorrowland today.CLICK FOR MORE!

The iconic Space Needle is the most famous landmark from the 1962 Seattle World’s Fair. Understandably so, since it was the expo’s centerpiece and crowning touch! To this day, thank goodness, it remains the super star of the Seattle skyline! But, it’s not the fair’s only mid-century modern leftover.
The beloved Bubbleator also survived. During the brief, but meaningful, run of the fair, then all the way until 1984, the world’s only bubble shaped elevator transported peeps for a short, memorable ride up and down one floor.

I knowww, it’s mesmerizing! That double-decker, deep-dish horse collar grill and all-around “Queen From Outer Space”-age styling is more than we mere Earthlings are hard-wired to comprehend.
We’re lovin’ the trio of beauty queen wannabees mistaking the back seat as a throne for three. Sit gently, please, those convertible top bows are brittle and breakable!
Traveling the southwest in any direction on Interstate 10, it’s impossible to miss the impressive parade of billboards promoting “The Thing.”
What is it, is the very reason to stop at this iconic American roadside attraction, celebrating 65 years (50 at this location), exhibited in an old shed 60-ish miles east of Tucson.
