correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't the Japanese Deer Park close because the deer got some disease? At least, that's what I recall.

At the Bamboo Ben shindig, Crazy Al asked me if anyone still had plans to do a large tiki event at this cool location....

I know Jim Tikiyaki had been thinking about it....anyone else?

Back in the late seventies, we used to ride our bikes from Huntington Beach all the way up Beach Blvd. to this little oasis. Wasn't patrolled too well either. Why?

Fond memories. I'm in for the luau idea, of course!

Jim was talking about setting up some old school type luau....man, that would be something!!!

I can imagine this place lit up at night with tiki torches, the sound of drumming, bird/jungle sounds on the PA, a full bar set up and serving famous exotic drinks. Bands, luaua pig....the Moia Mafia as security along the only walkway onto the island...hmmmmmmm, the possibilities!

I'm close by to Knott's. Is the area that was Jungle Island, still standing? With Soak City and all the other buildings, it's tough to tell from Beach Blvd.

Most definitely, Deke.

What you want to do is park at the Buena Park mall and then walk over. The area formerly known as Jungle Island is right next to Independance hall, and behind soak city. You can't miss it once you get there. Walking around the perimeter will reveal where the "amusement park" used to be. The old church is on the other side. The pictures at the beginning of this thread were taken by me just before I posted them, so that area is intact, but now used for events only.

I got to believe that if the right offer was made, they might go for it?
