The Tikis - Monterey Park, CA

$ 28.00

The Tikis in Monterey Park CA, was a totally unique and immersive experience. To give you an idea, The Tikis was created by Dan Balsz, who has been described as a cross between P.T Barnum, Bob Guccione, Liberace, and I’d add Walt Disney.  

Set on approximately 12 acres, The Tikis could serve 3000 people each night, and often did! There were caves, waterways, waterfalls, mermaids, an 80’ exploding volcano, 15 bars, up to 5 bands would perform each night, there was a petting zoo with exotic animals, and a handmade (!) roller coaster. Each night culminated in a Polynesian extravaganza and ended when a gorilla swooped down via a zip line, often knocking over guests’ beverages, and grabbed one of the maidens for a sacrifice. 

After The Tikis closed in 1979, Dan tried to open Tiki II in Lake Elsinore, but sadly never was able to get it officially opened even though a lot of the attraction was already built.

This t-shirt is available for Pre-Order through April 30th and will be shipping mid May.
