Hi. I am adding some coaster stuff to my room, does anyone know where I can purchase some items to spice it up in stores, or online , like posters, lamps, ect. . . And I am also looking for like promo posters of rides, and one more request, lol. Does anyone know where i can find pictures of ride signs online, that i can print out, the ones that tell you you cant wear earings on the rides, and other stuff, Thanks!

I've been curious about posters too... I never understood why parks didn't think they'd sell (or, whatever the reason is.)
That said, Cedar Point sells poster sized maps for a buck, and if you're really desperate, Walt Disney World sells replica posters of their rides (the ones you see when you walk into the Magic Kingdom) for $30.
I'm not sure if you can find either online though.

If you have a picture of your own (or one that someone else took)and have it enlarged to 20x30 at any reputable developing company. We've done this with traditional film negatives as well as digital pictures and I've been pretty happy with the result. As long as the starting quality is good, the poster should turn out great.
Just a thought to make it more personal...

I bought some ink drawings from a fellow named David Oster back in the mid-90's. They are dated '93. He had four or five drawings of which I have had two professionally framed. They hang in my office and I love to look at them. They get a lot of comments from visitors.
I would have no idea how to get in touch with this guy but you might try looking for him on the net. Wish I could give you more information. *** This post was edited by wahoo skipper 7/14/2003 4:06:42 PM ***
No I don't...sorry. I just checked my ACE directory and didn't see his name in there. Some of his drawings were published in ACE News a few years back, and I feel in love with them there. He was at Eastcoaster the first time I was there in '93 selling them, but I've never had the cash flow to afford it. Just like Linda Barnicott's paintings of Kennywood Park. He used to be in the Toledo area and has since moved. Thats all I know. An ink drawing of a metal coaster wouldn't cut it for me either. They're just not intersesting enough to look at, and it's against my religion!!
I think I bought a set of five pictures from David. Two I have had framed. That means that somewhere in the mess of my house there are 3 more pictures I need to find. If I remember they were not the same size as the two I had framed and they wouldn't look right hanging together.
I have a 2' x 3' black and white print of the Coney Island Cyclone which I bought at the A.C.E. Convention at Kennywood back in the early 80's. Looks great hanging in my kitchen! I bought it from one of the vendors during the Con. You might try contacting ACE for info.
Camden Park sells a nice poster. It's a painting of several of the park's signature rides (Big Dipper [with NAD train], Haunted House, Whip, Train, Thunderbolt Express [SBNO], the Riverboat [which left in the mid 90's], and the large clown sign). It was painted by park manager Jack Boylin (who I think has an art degree). It's the same image that was on Camden Park's website until recently.
It sells for a reasonable $4.49 and my only complaint with it is that it is a weird size (18.5 X 22.5) making it impossible to find a ready-made frame. ------------------ Ripple Rock Amusement Park *** This post was edited by millrace 7/28/2003 2:34:03 PM ***
E-mail Cedar Point. I got two giant Millennium Force posters and a whole bunch of press releases and pictures just by asking them if they have any free stuff. They may have TTD ones know. I'm not sure.
