I'm going to try and contact the producers of the who, Lee Mendelson Films (Burlingame, Cal) to see if I can purchase a copy of the show. Here's a link to th...

I remember dipping caramel apples with my colleagues very early in the morning and watching park customers eating breakfast at Buffet Le Grand early in the morning. The breakfast menu at Buffet ...

Re: Employee cafeteria

I couldn't agree with you more. I worked at the Santa Clara park and remembered how much I loved heading to the cafeteria with friends for lunch. I spent most of my time in the cheeseburger and frise side of the two lines. Good times and great memories :-)

I was told by friends that Wolf Camera can convert the VHS to DVD for me so I'm going to try that this weekend. Hope we can get this GA tv special uploaded to th...

Re: What a great site and wonderful memories

Good morning Steve - Hope all is well in California. The weather is just starting to turn nice out here in Chicago.....spring seems to have arrived (of course, now that I've said that, it will start snowing tomorrow).

Re: What a great site and wonderful memories

HI MGA1 - Thanks so much for writing back and jogging my memory about the burger places. The half hour special was call "Family Fun time USA" (I think that's what it was call). The show had Jonathan Winters and Joyce Dewitt performing comedy skits in different areas of the park, along with Joyce sin...

What a great site and wonderful memories

Thanks for taking the time to build this web site. I've really enjoyed my stroll through the different discussion forums and well as the photo albums. I worked at the Santa Clara Park between 1978 - 1981 or 82. I have to say that working at the park resulted in some of my most fondest memories. Look...
