Other Theme Park Railroads & Monorails

Busch Gardens, Tampa, Florida
Busch Gardens Tampa Bay has both a railroad and a monorail. Here is the railroad's locomotive #4, pictured on a steamy very hot day during August 1992.
|Compared to the bottom beam monorails at Disneyland California and the much nearer Walt Disney World Orlando the monorail at Busch Gardens has a top rail with underslung cars.|
These two pictures, taken in August 1992, will never win any prizes for composition, but the monorail provides close-up viewing within the wild animal enclosures so it is not easy to get a decent photograph from the walkways.
I cannot conceive that we would pass up on the opportunity, but for the life of me I cannot remember riding the railroad and monorail!
Six Flags Over Georgia
The Six Flags Over Georgia theme park, east of Atlanta off the I-20, has a live-steam narrow gauge replica of "The General". When we visited on 6th August 1999, another steamy hot deep-south day, we definitely did ride the railroad and I can remember it!
