Meet the amazing authors behind Pacific Ocean Park: The Rise and Fall of Los Angeles' Space Age Nautical Pleasure Pier and hear all about this one of a kind Los Angeles destination which has been all but lost to history. The authors will lead us through a colorful presentation about the park, followed by a book signing. As with all of our ESPN Zone events, there will be a fabulous breakfast (yes, there will be plenty of awesome maple pepper bacon).
Pacific Ocean Park was extraordinary in both its glamorous rise and spectacular fall. The park was so popular at one time that attendance briefly surpassed that of Disneyland. Christopher Merritt and Domenic Priore's book includes hundreds of images, most of them unseen elsewhere, including original ride designs and illustrations, including Tiki-rich, space age, and nautical rides. P.O.P. was often widely seen in movies and television shows throughout the '60s. Its Cheetah auditorium hosted important early rock shows, including those by Ritchie Valens, The Doors, and Pink Floyd.
- Chris Merrit (You may recognize Chris as one half of the Knott's Preserved team as well as his notable contributions to the theme park industry.)
- Domenic Priore (Domenic is a writer and television producer specializing in pop culture and music. He is the author of Riot on Sunset Strip: Rock 'n' Roll's Last Stand in Hollywood, Beatsville, Pop Surf Culture: Music, Design, Film and Fashion From the Bohemian Surf Boom, and Smile: The Story of Brian Wilson's Lost Masterpiece.)
