Ride pin badges

by Mono09 » Mon Mar 18, 2013 8:28 pm

Don't remember seeing these last year in the shops. Just wondering if anyone knows how many there are available. So far I've got

Thirteen
Nemesis
Nemesis ST
Oblivion
Smiler
Rita
Air.

Any I've missed off the list?

Had a good search today & yesterday on park but didn't see any ATR as that'd be a good one to have. could have sworn I saw a 'ministry of joy' one today as well.

Some are in ride shops but I got most from towers trading. if you buy 3 you get a free ATR lanyard to put them on.

I have a moj/smiler one :moj as far as I know these are staff only but they may well have started selling them as smiler merchandise.

I brought some more badge pins and backs and made 3 more badges.
(Disclaimer-Once again i am making no profit from these items and are purely for my fan use, such items are for personal enjoyment and any marketing/advertisment made for AT is simply a bonus.)

The last and 2nd Badge are my own design

Can you confirm if there are others available other than the ones I mentioned at the start of the post? For the public to get anyway.

Retail isn't my department so I wouldn't be sure if you have got them all, but I think you have  :) there is quite a few staff only ones too  ;)

I've been collecting the pin badges since the 90's so always on the look out for new ones  :) my favourite is the original Nemesis logo one from 94! I think that list is correct just the Ice Age and Resort badge you missed off. I haven't been yet this season so always on the look out for more especially with The Smiler not too far away now. Was there many Smiler pin badges in Towers Trading?

Apart from Sub-Terra, Ice Age and the AT logo the rest of the pin badges will just be the SW coasters and Rita  :) I haven't seen any others I'm afraid.

There are a few staff exclusive enamel badges too. Like the Th13teen one, and the Beating heart logo.

There is also an enamel Delivering the Magic pin Badge in gold and red from 1996 onwards. And a Gold Henry pin badge that was given for special rewards it is in a black box with a red velvet inside and a clear lid.

Was at the park today they were selling the Resort pin badge in the Air shop and Towers Trading. Hope this helps!
