The spring and summer exhibit up here on the 6th floor was What You Wish the World Could Be: The Early Years of Six Flags Over Texas. Originally scheduled for only the spring semester it was held over into the summer due to popular demand. It became SPCO’s most popular exhibit and shattered attendance records here. We were all sorry to see it go.
Along with wonderful images from our archives we were able to work with private collectors and enthusiasts to display a wide array of physical objects in the exhibit. Six Flags graciously loaned us one of their carousel horse (which always got a wonderful reaction from our younger visitors). Also, on display was a Spee-lunker dressed as Abe Lincoln. An original 1965 map of the park was also on display as well as many employee related items. I hope you had the chance to stop in and see the exhibit while it was up. Images of the exhibit can be found here.
