Skyline Amusement Park

For those of you who don't frequent Boing Boing, or Tulsa TV Memories, you may not realize that Bryan Crain has submitted some great pictures of a now defunct amusement park located between Jenks and Glenpool. There's some shots of it during its heyday in the '60s, as well as follow-up photos from 1994. Cudos to TTM for organizing this with all of the related guestbook comments. I had only read a little about this park previously, but these before and after pics combined with people's recollections really bring it to life.

Rose Bowl Lanes - Rt. 66 Tulsa

The Rose Bowl Lanes building has been torched yet again! Here's the article on KOTV's site. I took these pics back in 2003, before the really bad paint job. Did you know that Peg and Al Bundy once bowled at the Rose Bowl? It's true.
