I just hope the Towers think about doing more badges, I've always wanted them to do a Scarefest one  :) I've got quite a big collection of pin badges going back to the early 90's, I've been quite lucky to get hold of two Nemesis pin badges from 1994 - if I see any more come up on eBay I'll post the link for you!

Oh I'm the same my collection is as shown above and goes back to early 80's but yes agreed I'd love them to do special events badges, even going into like maze pin badges like for the sanctuary etc! Or AT Live badges like those would be collectible and finally thank much appreciated

Has anyone spotted any new pin badges across the park this new season?? Still hoping they will produce one for Nemesis' 20th Birthday!

Yeah same here (except I did see some Nemesis ones in the Air shop) and I need some more because I have an ever-growing wall of badges

That's a shame, I'll have a little look around when I head up this weekend! Was hoping they would produce a new Smiler one too!
I think if I was in charge of merchandise I would make new ones every year and produce other badges for other rides, not just the coasters (and Sub-Terra / Ice Age). They do this at Disney and produce loads of different pin badges during the season.

Definitely one of the best pin badges the park have ever made! I'm very lucky to have one too! :D Just wish they made some others to the same standard.
