KI Memorabilia rarity

Recommended Posts

I thought many here would like to see a rare KI memento that I recently added to my collection.

This is a carved marble slab mounted on a framed backing with a brass plate inscription.   It was presented following the 1981 season - and it features the (then) new "The Bat" as part of the collage of KI images.

From what I have learned, this was presented to a former Full-Time KECO/Kings Island staff member.

Its quite a piece!  If anyone has anymore info about this, please share!

Was 1981 a really good year?  Apparently?

Yes, it set a record for the time: 2.76 million people. The record was not surpassed until 1984, which saw over three million people.

Are those birds or bats circling the Eiffel Tower?

Have had information passed along to me about this piece years ago. Can’t remember much though.

 

If I recall correctly, someone else on this site actually managed to get ahold of one of these many years ago and also had a story to go with it. Finding that thread could be a shot in the dark, as it may have been tucked into another thread and not in its own. 

 

Great to see another one of these floating around!
