    Cool!

    But they left out the Alligator Farm which was on the north side of La Palma (other side of Knott's)

    And ... actually .. it shouldn't be called - Early of Amusement Parks of OC .. because several of the features cover parks that were part of LA county.

    A better title - Early Amusement Parks of Southern California.

    I've tried to figure out how to write the owner of the page, I don't see an option for "contact".

    That Jungle Island at Knott's Berry Farm was great fun! Just outside Knotts, behind the Independence Hall. Something like $1 admission and you could run around and play for hours on the trails. I also loved the Pan for Gold attraction at Knott's. Busch Gardens in Van Nuys was also nice and it was FREE in its first few years! Except a small charge for the boat ride I think. Later they started charging admission. Free beer for the adults! Lion Country Safari was fun too - a drive-through animal park. The animals might sit on your car. Now that is Wild Rivers water park and Irvine Meadows ampitheater.
