QUAKER PUFFED CEREALS HOUSE

 

The name of this attraction was misleading, as it wasn't a house of any type. It was actually a giant cereal box and a large cannon, out of which flew an acrobat four times a day. The aerialists were the husband and wife team of George and Nancy Zacchini, who flew out of the cannon at 100 miles per hour, hurtling  towards a net 140 feet away, arcing 65 feet into the sky.

The Quaker exhibit was located near the entrance to the Florida pavilion at Gate 4. The first day of operation was June 28, 1965.
