Day 7 - 2018: Offer More Great Adventure Specific Merchandise

Recommended Posts

DAY07.jpg

 

So many of the park's shops are filled with super hero merchandise that it is very hard to find many Six Flags mementos let alone Great Adventure specific ones.  (Except for apparel - that selection is great!)   How about bringing back some Great Adventure classic theme park souvenirs that so many of us grew up with and love to collect.  Here is a short list:

 

- Poster-size park maps

- Postcards

- Magnets

- Pins/Patches

- Snow Globes

 

- Pennants

They would sell a lot more if there was more specific stuff and less generic "Six Flags" merchandise.

The poster size park maps are definitely my favorite (I have several)!

Maybe they can print a limited amount for the season and number them.

Since Six Flags makes changes/additions to every park every year, a limited number of maps for the year should ensure little to no inventory at the end of the season.

Coaster Dynamix models would be great also. I have several from the Cedar Fair parks.

I agree Coaster Dynamix models would be great. If there was a Statix train for Nitro, I'd buy it without thinking twice (I just have Talon from Dorney right now). The Nanocoaster models would be nice to see as well.

 

I also have some generic Six Flags merchandise I have bought from the park in past years like a baseball that has "Six Flags Coaster Team" on it. I like it because I collect baseballs but would have preferred to have the baseball mention Great Adventure somewhere on it.

I wish they would add Pins for the Park, Rides and Seasons. Sesame Place added Pins in 2017 and they have been a big hit, Dutch Wonderland also has quite a bit of Pins. Unfortunately Hershey has barley any pins and GA has none.

About 20 years ago BGW had a t-shirt that said "The Fearsome Four" or something like that,and it had the logos for LNM,BBW,Drachen Fire and Alpengiest.SF should do that for their parks-like for Great Adv. it could be "I survived a Great Adventure in Gotham City" and have the logos for B:TR,TDK,Justice League and Cyborg.

And on a side note:back when the Giant Teepee was still around (about 10 years ago more specifically),I ducked in there to see what stuff they had.Unfortunately there was no kitchsy items like coon-skin hats,but even stranger was there was a rack of t-shirts that said "Great America"!
