1988 Disneyland State Fair Captain Zoom

One of the attractions brought in to create excitement and entertain the guests was Captain Zoom and His Amazing Cannon. Captain Zoom would be shot out of the cannon onto a large net over Main Street. I am sure that must have been spectacular to witness. First up are two images of the parade to ground zero for the big shot.

And here is the landing in the net.

Very fun shots with such lovely, warm sunlight. I've never been to any of the Disney parks/events, but if I'd gone as a youngster, this would have the right era, so that adds an extra degree of interest to these shots for me.

That would have been pretty cool to see!

This reminds me a lot of Disneyland's Circus Fantasy event they held in the late 80s.
