These must have been hand painted. My tray is painted a little different.

The winner from Winter Adventure? Congratulations! I didn't bid against you on that. Although, I did run up the price on the Batman sign.

Obviously not from Great Adventure, but from Kings Island. These sketches/prints are my favorite theme park item I own.

Mine is the 1975 souvenir book I got in the park when I was 11 years old. I still clearly remember the visits that summer with my sister.

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.

 

Here is a photo of the lion that I mentioned several months back.

On the left is my dog tag made by the wood carvers who had a stand in the Fort under the Runaway Train.  It says my name, Worlds Greatest Lead, Western Dumpster, Summer  “77”. 

 

Who knows what is on the right?

 

 

It’s a garbage can key.  The original garbage cans came from the 64-65 World’s Fair (some still had stickers on them).   They were replaced in 1977 and the new cans had a lock on the door needing a key.  By the end of July, all the keys were lost, but all you had to do was reach in between the door and liner and pull the locking bar, which turned out to be faster anyway.  I think this is the only key in existence.

I love hearing stories like this!  For some reason your photos didn't post.  If you can send us the images we can add them.

 

The postcard below has those NYWF garbage cans in it!

I have this bag from when Bally owned the park, it has the rainbow logo and the "We care about you" slogan. It was only given to employes according to my mom at a orientation.
