EarlyAmusementParksOfOrangeCountyIoA[Book: Richard Harris – 2008 – 16x23cm – 128 Pages – Many B&W photos]. The Orange County coast (California, USA) had its Joy Zone and its Fun Zone in the early decades of the 20th Century. Knott’s Berry Farm sprouted from a simple berry stand in Buena Park. The spot that would become Walt Disney’s theme-park empire began as a citrus grove in Anaheim. Before long, Orange County was recognised as the nurturing ground for the growing amusement park industry. Some amusement parks have come and gone over a century of development, and some are still here, changing with the times to create new adventure and excitement for park goers. Chapter Points: Introduction; Coastal Amusement Parks; Knott’s Berry Farm; Walt Disney and Disneyland; Hollywood and Entertainment Attractions; Wildlife Attractions; Old MacDonald’s Farm. ANDY SHINE’S RATING: Good.
