(news release) SANTA CLAUS, IN-----Writing checks just became a bit more amusing. A series of photos taken at Holiday World & Splashin' Safari is now available as checks from Carousel Checks of Chicago, Illinois.
“Apparently, roller coaster checks have never been available before,” says Holiday World & Splashin' Safari president Will Koch. “We were delighted when Carousel Checks invited us to team up with them to be the first park ever featured on checks.”
Carousel Checks president Andy Crim, whose family has been in the check-printing business for 40 years, visited Holiday World & Splashin' Safari in May to take digital photos for the check series. Two dozen different scenes from the theme park and water park are featured, including The Raven and The Legend coasters, HallowSwings, Zinga water slide, and Santa Claus. Checks featuring the Holiday World, Raven, or Legend logos are also available.
The checks may be purchased at www.carouselchecks.com/

"..first park ever featured on checks."
But if you look at the site, Kennywood checks are also featured.

Just for the record, the Kennywood Checks are from the artist Linda Barnicott. The Holiday World Checks are actual photos from the park. So far Holiday World is the only "Official Park Checks" on the market.

Back in the early 90's, I had rollercoaster checks. The only one I can seem to remember though are the Collosus checks. It has been done before.

I got mine in the mail last week. They are very cool. A big step up from Pooh Bear. Some of the pictures of the signs and stuff are lame but I love the one's of Raven, Legend and Zinga. It is cool how the logos are on the checks as well.

Any idea if this idea is going to hit the big chains? (Cedar Fair, Paramount, Disney, Six Flags)
