Saludos Amigos! I've had to go through a run of expensive dental work (most of which insurance doesn't cover, of course) and there's still more to come. To raise some much-needed funds, I'm getting ready to part ways with 50 theme park, roller coaster and thrill ride-related press kits that I've amassed over the past several decades!

All of them are fun and informative. Quite a few are real collector's items. And a handful are exceedingly rare, vault-worthy pieces of amusement park history.

Here are just a few of the most extraordinary samples:

  • The original 1997 Islands Of Adventure kit which includes 19 full-color 8" x 10" glossy concept art prints and over 30 pages of fact-filled information sheets!

  • The original 1980 press kit for Kings Island's The Bat, the world's first Arrow Suspended Coaster! (Also includes a vintage heat-transfer Beast T-shirt (XL) in brand-new condition, never worn!)

  • The 1980 press kit for The American Eagle, the record-smashing (for its time) racing woodie at Marriott's Great America in Illinois!

  • A Great Adventure souvenir book from 1974, its debut year, in near-mint condition! (Also includes the Kingda Ka teaser/media day invitation!)

  • A thick folder of promotional material from Arrow Dynamics, including a 2002 "Products and Services" media CD; product information sheets; 16 issues of "Directions," Arrow's multi-page, full color corporate newsletters dating from 1987 to 1994; and more!

Take a look at the complete listing below; you're sure to find a kit that celebrates one of your favorite rides, parks and/or manufacturers! (Yes, even Togo!)

Details and photos for each kit and its contents will be available on Ebay.
