I just moved into a new apartment, and need to do some decorating. Does anyone know of anywhere to buy prints or posters of coasters? I have tried several different sites and searches, but haven't been able to come up with anything.

Ebay, but I would like to know of some too.
If Millennium Force doesn't go upside-down, then how could Mantis?

I never found any online but somtimes at parks you can get poster sized park maps and somtimes coaster logo posters. Luckily at Kennycon last year I won a Steel Phantom poster that they had in their warehouse since it's opening season.
What I do for wall decor is cut out news paper articles about new rides at local parks or park related stories. Once I get enough of them I buy a picture frame and hang them up. Luckily our local paper covers stories about Knoebels monthly durring the season and in the off season keeps us posted on whats new.

This is one merchandise item that puzzles me why parks don't have them. They have coffee mugs and shot glasses yet they don't have posters. If anyone has any sure-fire way to obtain them please post it here!

This web site used to offer thumbnails at least, but I couldn't seem to find them this time around. I have never bought anything from them either, but they do offer large prints of coasters taken from the air. http://www.rollercoasterworld.com/Aerial/index.html

Check out this Drachen Fire poster at E-Bay! The price of this is going to soar if coasterbuzzers get a hold of it!!! http://cgi.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1155583444

I think Parks should offer posters of their coasters... I Know that these would sell !

It's really weird. It seems like the most obvious thing in the world for them to sell.

You could always grab pictures off the web, print them out on a good color printer, and take the printouts to your local copy shop to have them enlarged to a minimum of 11x17 on the color copier. You can probably go larger if you you are willing to pay the extra cost (in fact, they have oversized pro inkjet ones that can do HUGE prints, but it's very
You could also take your own pictures on a digital camera - make sure you use the highest resolution setting. Then - if your printer supports this - you can print out wall sized posters by tiling it, printing several pages that when combined make the total image.

i would *LOVE* for amusement parks to sell posters of thier rides . (i have about two hundred ride pictures from brochures, articles, etc. haning on my wall). How ever, i can't see the average non-enthusiast people haning pics of coasters on their walls next to photos of family members or their favorite bands/movie stars. i can hope though!
