From one Cedar Fair park to another, here's a postcard of Vortex from when Paramount still owned Kings Island. Anyone got a Diamondback postcard yet?

^ Could not find a single Diamondback card in any shop anywhere in the park (went to all of them the last 3 days looking.) All they had was Beast, Beast logo, Firehawk, Vortex, Delirium, the Eiffel Tower during fireworks and I think Son of Beast but not sure on the last one as they are in my car.

I just love the old KI logo and font. Great card Shane!

While on the subject of KI, here's a unique postcard of sorts featuring the Eiffel Tower.

I encourage those of you that have a post card collection, no matter how small or large, to share them with us. This can be an even better thread if we get some more contributers... Now get scanning!

Here is a great old card from Cedar Point.


Wow!!! Is that lime green track on the Blue Streak in the background of this postcard?

When I worked on the ride 92-93 (RIP), there were spots in the station where a lime green color was showing up below layers of old paint. Now I'm wondering if the track was that same color... anyone anyone?

Yummy! I just ate donkey!

Can you believe the Busch company ever had an "off-the-shelf carnival type ride?" Well it did, and it was Glissade.


Oh, the synchronicity, Shane ... I just returned from a visit to BGE this past weekend and was examining my copy of this same Glissade card. I rode this Schwarzkopf staple on my first visit to BGE. Just across the midway, Busch had yet another "off-the-shelf" model from Anton --- a Wildcat. And just think, HIS version of the BBW was on the drawing board but would never see the light of day ... ::sigh:: :?r

Celebrating all things AstroWorld over in Shane's Amusement Attic so I am going to do a shameless plug here in Mark's Postcard Paradise. I

I loved how AstroWorld incorporated "Astro" into a lot of their earlier rides, here we have the ICON of AstroWorld...the Astro Needle (later renamed SkyRama)

Great tie-in to your AstroWorld mini-series season finale Shane! I'll miss the Attic over the summer. Thanks again for sharing all your amazing memorabilia. It was another fantastic season!

Oh and by the way, the Postcard Paradise will still be open for business this summer, so feel free to continue your great postcard contributions when you're not too busy at Cowabunga Bay (<---would love to see any postcards from there too if you are getting any made).
