    And the Movie version:
    wow interesting, the original was build at least 50 years after the movie image... The homage to this same set at hollywood and highland wasn't built until much later.

The T-Rex is open occasionally, but there is a charge to go inside, I think they show a movie or something.
    There's no touristy gift shop anymore, the whole thing was bought by some reality challenged creationists. Be prepared if you stop by again.

    The long dino was called a brotosaurous when it was built, but he never existed. The wrong head was matched to a body. The body is a bracheosaurous and I forget what the head is.

    The dinosaur is called Dinny, was built in the early 1960's but took 11 years to actually build. (There are only 2 dinosaurs there, the other one was built in the early 1980's and called Mr Rex) I think it is an Apatosaurs.

    Awesome PI. I'm a bit of a TZ fanatic. Could you please tell me which episode? I'd love to go back and watch it.

    Thanks,

    I'm not sure of the title. The premise involved a female performer of some sort who had gained notoriety and who was returning to her hometown. The hotel appears at the very beginning of the episode.

    Awesome! Good episode involving a plane crash. I'll have to watch it again. Thanks for checking into that for me.

    Of course there are the really obvious ones, like Mullholland drive for Mullholland Madness, and the tree in the redwook creek challenge is "Big Sir" I guess named after Big Sur

    One California-themed attraction that was not built:
    "Eisner's Stock Option and Cash Bonus Mountain."
    The green paint was too costly.
    "Here You Leave the World of California Today and Enter the World of, um, er, California Today."
