Lion Country Safari

Today, Werner Weiss has added a retrospective of Lion Country Safari to his Yesterland website.

I went back to visit the "ruins" of LCS in Irvine a couple years ago and was surprised at how much of the old infrastructure still exists. The restaurant building, the boat cruise docks, train station, lake, animal show stage, "ranger stations," landscaping, and trench barriers for some of the animals were still in place. Some things were in better shape than others, and some had appearantly been re-used as part of a summer camp facility. However, the only wild animals I saw were ducks, herons and a few lizards.
