The Lost Parks of Northern California
Northern California has a storied amusement park past…
From the elegant, Victorian-era parks built on the coast, to the small, family-owned parks that inspired Walt Disney to build his masterpiece – we have been witnesses to our fair share of amusement park history. Sadly, most of it has been lost to development, natural disasters or simply the passing of time.
Along with the American Coaster Enthusiasts, Northern California, Great American Thrills® is seeking out these lost amusement parks, in the hopes to reconnect people with the incredible history behind them, as well as re-discover some history as well!
