Just wondering whether anybody has any kind of Christmas ornaments or other decorations related to parks or coasters. Or does that betray one's status as a "not too enthusiastic enthusiast?" Like Santa doesn't already know. :)
I suppose most of you would consider this over the top, but what would you expect from two ACE EC members? We have two trees and the main one is amusement parked themed. We have probably close to 100 ornaments from amusement/water parks all over the world. We also have some beautiful porcelain carousel horse ornaments, and three miniature Ferris wheels that actually move. We have been collecting these ornaments for years.
I know we have several unique ornaments but the one that really comes to mind is a Grizzly ornament from Silverwood.
And don't worry Antuan, the trees are fake and there is no tinsel :)
I have uh... nothing even mildly coaster related hanging from my tree.
I have, however, dispensed with the standard Lionel Train this year, and remodeled my Coasterdynamix kit to do a little circuit around the tree. The basic progression goes drop, loop, turn, zero g, helix, air hill, turn, cork, turn... with the very end of the ride visible here.
I'll post other pictures later if anyone wants to check it out...
Silver Dollar City makes it easy for "amusement park" themed ornaments as season pass holders get one every Christmas if they go to all of the festivals, and if you are a 3-park pass holder and go to all 3 parks you get another ornament. So far I have at least 12, maybe 13 of these pewter ornaments. They are really nice and one reason why renew our passes every year. We also have some random theme park ornaments from various parks as well. :)
