We looked into it ! We'd have to use all their food and beverage vendors and everyone would have to buy a ticket to the park (Knotts)

Would have been too expensive. Too Bad, it's very cool !

Too bad. The Knott's Lagoon spot in the Knotts Picnic Center would have been great.

The Knott's lagoon IS the same area as Jungle island, and was part of Jungle Island. Those water shots at the beginning of this thread are the lagoon.

Maybe Chris Merrit (Tangaroa) can put in a good word in for us to get around that!

Though making a book about a place does not necessarily help you get past corporate structures.

Here is another article I found about it. Scroll down a bit, and you can see jungle island pretty clearly (They zoomed the shot)

What you don't really see well in that zoom-in is the great A-frame structure you posted on page 1:



What's that incongruous fence doing there...shielding of the traffic view?

That might be a newer edifice?

I have found this website to be a great reference for seeing what things used to look like (from the air):
