  1. Way back in April I teased that I had purchased a set of photos of the park from 1974. (Random Photo Thread) A lot of the photos are the “same old, same old”…it’s amusing to me that I have seen several different sets of photos that people have taken at the park over the years and it seems like you can count on quite a few people taking the same exact shots. (I wish I could run across someone who liked to take more pictures of the rides back then! ) Anyway, as I was scanning these photos and looking at them I kept thinking to myself just how much the park has changed. (duh) I was also just as
  2. It's not that old of a brochure...but here it is anyway. I still find it amazing that the park got two major rides in one year. Oddly enough, even though I am amazed the park got two major rides in one year...I don't really care for either of them! "Give Scooby Doo a big hug"...a line that once made me smile now makes me sad. I'm guessing The Beast will outlive USAToday. I like the Yogi, Fred & Scooby shot. "Clogging At Paramount's Kings Island"...nowadays when I think of clogging and Kings Island I think of Halloween Haunt. "Most bang for your buck"...I
  3. I would like to know how this cover was done...it certainly looks like someone cut everything out to create this...but that Eiffel Tower would have been a nightmare. The Vortex logo is definately a product of it's time period...not that there's anything wrong with that. I wonder what that Kings Island rainbow thingy that the little girl is holding...I want one! So why haven't I seen that guy's black cat costume ever come out during Halloween Haunt?!! It is definately scarier than a lot of the costumes they have used. I hope everyone has a great weekend!
  4. I have debated whether to even post this at all...you really have to be a die-hard fanboy to enjoy this one. (cough Ty, cough Paul) But since I have it...and I have it scanned, here it is: I like the cover...it's simple yet nice. Only in the 70's could a boyfriend & a girlfriend's clothes have clashed so badly. "Live Entertainment...a stage show in Old Coney, a porpoise show, melodramas..." Melodramas?!! Anyone remember these? Just think...you could have gotten 25 people in for only $150.00...today that's what 5 Fast Lane passes cost. (And yes I know that the 1974 prices ar
  5. About a month ago I posted a brochure from 1974...I mentioned then that I also had a different one from the same year...so here it is. I find it interesting that the park used 2 different slogans...it's like they were trying to hit different demographics. There are some great faces in those trains...these are my favorites: Notice that without the seat belts or seat dividers that a parent could give their child a little extra support if they were a little scared. I also like the gentleman in yellow...it looks like he's on his way to the office for the day! "Intriguing menu..." tho
  6. I noticed that the "Something fun..." slogan appears to be in the same font as the old Kings Island logo...is it a common/normal font? I thought it was odd that the artist chose to accentuate that Scooby was a costumed character and not the "real" Scooby running around. (I also like seeing Dick Van Dyke on this brochure...it is one of the few things that my hometown has produced that is good.) I can't say as I like the outside of The Kings Island Inn better than it looks today. "Kings Island's Screamin' Demon- a super fast coaster that shoots you through a loop completely UPSIDE DOWN
  7. My family have always been loyal to Kings Island. Even though we are located about the same distance from Great America (Gurnee, IL), Six Flags (St. Louis) & Kings Island, we have always considered Kings Island "our park". As I have mentioned lately I am sorting through some of my stuff...and I wandered across this old postcard packet that I got back in the mid 1970's when we were at Six Flags. (It was our one and only trip there...we just preferred Kings Island better.) I have no idea how much things have changed at the park...but I am guessing that pretty much all of this has...enjoy!
  8. "Come be a kid again"...a great slogan! I have to say, as much as I love Scooby...this is not his finest hour...appearance wise that is. (His feet are really bad.) Only in the 70's could you see dresses like the entertainers are wearing! "...you are whisked through the make believe lands of our Enchanted Voyage," Have a good weekend!
  9. I like seeing King Cobra's logo featured on the front...except for seeing a Smurf it looks like a great year to be at the park. (This is the first foldout in the brochure.) The only thing that caught my eye on this page...no pun intended...is that Yogi appears to have 1 eye closed. I can't picture a costume made with 1 eye closed...so was it possible to manually open & close the eyes on some of those outfits for a different look back then? If so, I am impressed. (Middle of brochure.) "Flintstones shake little hands and bring on giant smiles"....GREAT line! I have always loved Whi
  10. It's not too exciting...but it is something to look at during the off season. "...unusual women's apparel". Unfortunately with a description like that, in today's lower class/morals age, people would be expecting something completely different than they did back then. I miss the sail. "Lay down your voice to the music tracks of today's top tunes, and keep a cassette". (Mommy, what's a cassette?!) I never thought that I would have to tolerate The Smurfs a second time around! Rivertown sounds so much better back then. So which statement is the least believable..."mouth-
