My favorite publication is the 1989 brochure, it's the only item i own with scream machine being the "hot ride" it was my favorite looping coaster, now it is bizarro.

My most loved piece of Great Adventure memorabilia would have to be the original proposal for the park. This is the only copy I have ever seen!

I really don't have anything that great, I guess it's the mug I bought from Big Wheel Deals a few years ago (I miss that store!), that had all of the coaster logos on it as of 2005.

The last weekend that scream machine was open we bought the shirts, 2 beer mugs and 2 beer glasses that had the dates of the opening and closing. Then better yet... we got our picture taken wearing the shirts at the entrance and waiting in the que at 9:00 at night that friday when it was raining and no one else was waiting for it to open back up.

My favorite has to be the 1998 park map of the Chiller. I cannot get enough of the Chiller.

I have a lot of favorite pieces... but my #1 is probably my GASM bolt. It was given to me a year prior to closing and was told that it would be a collection piece very soon, I'm in the market for a keyhole key chain still and also looking for more poster maps, those 2 things haven't been easy to come across in last few years, the maps that had been for sale were going upwards of 50$ and that's a little steep. My collection keeps growing monthly and as soon as I buy my house I'm building a nice display case and insuring all of it just in case of another super storm..got lucky once, not taking a chance for next time

I would kill to have a real piece of GASM! why was that given to you a year prior, was the bolt replaced for some reason?

The last day of this season I bought a wooden lion's head sculpture that closely resembled the park's original lion sign once found on Rt.537. It wasn't meant to be that but it was the closest thing I've seen at teh park. I'll have to take a picture of it.

My Chiller bolts are very close to me. I have several red and blue ones. But what I love more than that is my Chiller wheel and Viper wheels, true gems of the collection. I have a Batman the Ride brake pad as well that is really neat.

It was from the block brakes, they were changing out one set early one morning before the park opened and they cut out the bolts and reinstalled new ones

Through working at the park and getting to know several mechanics and higher ups in the rides dept that could authorize release of them. The bolts I simply collected as the ride came down like most guests did at the time.

My uncle has a enable/ stop buttons from loops. He also has a sign that states "this ride is temporarily closed, please enjoy another attraction at this time". He lives in Florida now so I have of seen them since 2007 when I was down there. I could not stop playing with those buttons!

That would be great... I don't have one of those yoyos. I need to check which matchbooks I am missing, but if I don't have it I would like one of your extras if possible.
