Bud Hurlbut's estate sale offers historic theme park artifacts

Posted Thursday, April 12, 2012 10:13 AM | Contributed by Jeff

Bud Hurlbut designed and built the Calico Mine Ride and the Timber Mountain Log Ride — two attractions that, decades after they were built, remain among the most popular rides at Knott's Berry Farm. Castle Park in Riverside is another Hurlbut project. He established the park in 1976, selling it a little more than 20 years later. The contents of his workshop are for sale, through Saturday.

If I lived in the area, I'd be there. A real pioneer in the industry. Anyone going to SoCal should really try and catch Castle Park...some really sweet ironwork and details ALL over the park. Plus the quirkiest spinning coaster anywhere.

Oh, and since Timber Mountain was mentioned....."sit down!" ;)
