I have heard MANY rumors that there used to be a Busch Gardens up in Northern California. Anyone know anything about this?

It's not a rumor. It was in the San Fernando Valley where the brewery is. It had a logride and bird show. No coasters though. They closed in the late 70's. I remember the commercials.

It's too bad it wasn't developed like the other BG parks. Then again, they were in direct competition with Magic Mountain. It would have been 1 or ther other. I'm not going to weep for BGC while standing in line for the X in a couple months. Still...would have been nice. :)

Oh really! If Houston had a second amusement park, we'd finally get some REAL rides again!

Yeah, but direct competition doesn't seem to have hurt BGW in re: PKD and SFA, nor BGT in re: DW and USF. I really wish this park had flourished and we had a Busch presence out in So. Cal. However, they picked the wrong area to build (the brewery) as it was landlocked and the property surrounding it became very pricey. Sure wish they had started their park in Ventura or Orange County, instead of smack dab in the middle of the San Fernando Valley.

P.S. They had a very cool log ride.
