• Lost World, 4654 Scotts Valley Drive, Santa Cruz, California.

    Circa 1960s.

    Lost World was a Scotts Valley tourist attraction that featured 25 to 30 enormous, realistic, life-sized models of many different species of dinosaurs. The entrance to Lost World was on Scotts Valley Drive, and featured a giant animatronic tree that served as the park’s entrance, near a T-rex looking out over the turret of a castle. The park also featured what was previously known as the Tree Circus, a grove of trees meticulously grafted into the kinds of whimsical shapes never found in nature.
