Bringing Fun To The Panhandle – Wonderland Park
For almost seven decades, Wonderland Park has been bringing fun to the Panhandle. In the early ’50s, Paul and Alethea Roads traveled to Amarillo to look over some potential property where they might develop an amusement park. While their first impression was less than impressive, a second viewing opened their eyes to the potential. That was in 1951 when the idea of creating one of these types of entertainment venues was still rare. There were only three other parks opened that year. All were fairly small, but offered the growing population some places to play.

Cadillac Ranch in Amarillo, Texas
This place is a trip. Basically you bring a can of spray paint to the paint the Cadillacs on the ranch, corn, ground, or garbage cans. An aristocracy of roadside attractions has been raised over the years: glorified in photo essays, calendars, blogs, and social media fiefdoms; spotlighted in video and film; instantly recognizable as icons. These Great Monuments, we are told, represent America's hopes and dreams, art and commerce, materialism and spiritualism, folly and fame. The line-up. Cadillac Ranch is one of them. Professional authors and screenwriters know a pre-baked, easy-to-get symbol when they see it. Who are we to buck the trend? Standing along Route 66 west of Amarillo, Texas, Cadillac Ranch was invented and built by a group of art-hippies imported from San Francisco. They called themselves The Ant Farm, and their silent partner was Amarillo billionaire Stanley Marsh 3.
