More about this marker. The marker is located within the brewery property, which is not open to the public except for occasional guided tours or special events. The marker can be viewed from a distance through the front gate.
A mistake on the marker says the log flume ride crossed over the railroad, but it never did. It’s the tram ride that crossed the railroad, with a track painted blue that looks similar to the flume ride in photos. (I grew up visiting Busch Gardens, then worked on the brewery expansion. -CB)
The first Busch Gardens was 30 miles east of here in Pasadena, at the home of Adolphus Busch, whose garden was a tourist attraction from 1905 to 1937. Some features of those gardens can still be seen today, in the residential neighborhood surrounding Busch Garden Drive.
