The Enchanted Tiki Room in 1968

In 1968, the Tiki Room was fully sponsored by United Airlines. The synergy of United sponsoring a Polynesian show was spectacular. United's main flights were to Hawaii and the South Pacific and the flights included Trader Vic meals. The first image shows the front entrance with travel and attraction posters out front.

The next image is of the entrance in twilight. Check out the fashions on some of park guests!

The final image for today is a shot of Tangaroa and the shields on the A-Frame.

I hope you enjoyed your short trip to the islands, I know I have as I have not featured the Tiki Room in a while.

do you remember the Polynesian restaurant that was next door? I know we had several meals there -- just like being in the islands (hee hee)
