Dead Eye Ledge

Last August, I was able to showcase a diagram of the Hawken, The Frontierland Shootin’ Arcade’s weapon of choice. Included with the Hawken document was a map of the proposed territory the Arcade would cover. At the time, I did not have the technical knowhow to be able to properly present the map on the Main Street Gazette. Today, with a little elbow grease, I am able to complete the set of documents.

The map included potential targets in addition to labeling the geographic features. Like the Hawken advertisement, this map was presented to park management by WED Florida in 1982 in order to encourage the redesign of the older, and potential harmful, Frontierland Shooting Gallery. While not all of the design elements featured here would be established in the final presentation of the Arcade, the spirit of the West was, and is, still invoked in the Frontierland Shootin’ Arcade.
