Map: The Strange and Wonderful Lost Amusement Parks of LA
Once upon a time, from the early days of the city until as late as the 1970s and '80s, Los Angeles was home to dozens of more freewheeling amusement parks, where new attractions were added every season and you could ride an alligator, see a macaw on rollerskates, descend into Dante's hell, watch a Civil War sea battle reenactment, drink free beer, and even get medical care for your baby, in between riding the rollercoasters and eating cotton candy.
