A nighttime view of amusement rides in Ocean Park, California. The Dragon Gorge Scenic Railway appears in the center of the image. The twin red pagodas which adorn the façade of the Dragon Gorge's entrance are seen above the roller coaster's tracks. The Looff Hippodrome which housed a carousel appears on the shore with a large domed roof. The tracks and a carriage for the Grand Canyon Scenic Railroad appear in the lower right portion of the image. The imitation volcano seen in the upper right portion of the image adorned the entrance to the Grand Canyon Scenic Railway.
