I'm curious what everybody's favorite trinkets/memorabilia/gifts they have or want, dealing with roller coasters or amusement parks.
Magnets, the afore-mentioned shirts and wristbands.
I keep them on until they just can't hold on any longer.
Whenever I am having a rotten day...I see them and I'm reminded that "THAT" was a good day.
Once they fall I tape them to a section of my wall and hang 'em like military medals.
I've also seen some nice calendars and I have a set of collectable Roller Coaster Cards.
I started writing a post that sounded strangely familiar, then decided to just link myself. As an update to that post, I did finally get a KI logo mug a few years ago, and a Six Flags Ohio one off eBay.
Coaster wheels! Hard to find, but I enjoy having "game used" coaster wheels in my "man cave". One of my favorites is from the original mine train at SFOT.
Definitely calendars. For the past several years I've been creating my own coaster calendar with my own coaster photos through Shutterfly. This is a way to relive fond memories and I'm excited about next year's calendar b/c I have so many new photos of coasters I rode for the first time this year. After that T-shirts, sweatshirts and jackets. The T-shirts are a given whereas some of the other stuff I got by default. For instance, at both Six Flags Great America and Alton Towers it was very warm one day and chilly the next so I ended up with a SFGA jacket and a Smiler sweater.
I like collecting magnets, T shirts, postcards, and ride photos.
An Alan Schilke autographed wheel. Now that would be the pinnacle of coaster swag.
That would be pretty sweet!
If I had a large family room I would love one of the old Cedar Point Dodgem cars in the corner. Not a very realistic wish I know but it would be cool.
