Theme Park Memorabilia - What do you have?

Tue Feb 01, 2011 6:14 pm

As a [s:cnji8mdp]geek[/s:cnji8mdp], er sorry, fan of Theme Parks I, of course, have a piece of Theme Park History. Do You?

Mine is an old Hic-Cup from Prof. Burps Bubble Works at Chessington.

I will upload a picture soon, I promise.

Also, on the same note, anyone see http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Colossus-Thorpe-Park-OTSR-2002-/120679351276?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_3&hash=item1c190cc3ec#ht_575wt_1139 this on ebay?

If only I had that much cash to hand :D

I have always wanted to have a restraint... even if it is from colossus, which is very uncomfortable! But I really shouldn't!

I thought that but reading the description it is an older one, used in the first season - so the better model.

Im not an avid collector but I do proudly own some original photos taken by B&M on the opening day of Oblivion and Nemesis with the dates on the back. I also have a B&M and Arrow catalogue, the ones they send out to clients.

Don't know if the word git is counted as a swear and therefore against regulations. If it is please except my appology in advance and change it for an aceptable word

Hi

The letter from B&M thanks me for writing to them and just outlines what they have sent me and confirms that the brochures have been signed. The roller coaster brochures contain pictures and information about various B&M coasters - not technical info though, but some fantastic shots of various B&M rides around the world.
