Sorry, I didn't remember this thread. I deleted mine and stuck yours. I'll post a thing or two of mine later.
When I saw the thread title, the first thing I thought of was the stuffed Loch Ness monster I used to have. Then I saw it! I cherished that thing. Gosh, I wish I still had mine. That and my Threadneedle Faire goblet. Thanks for the flashback.

RE: Favorite Merchandise

Hey guys long time no talk. I have my t somewhere from the first season Ireland was open, my brother still has one of those huge mugs from Grogan's pub. That's not to mention all of the stuff my mom has kept of ours that I would have to go through. It's amazing what you find when you attic dive.

Check out this little gem that turned up in my mailbox today:



Yes, it has recipes that are still used at the park today such as Black Forest Cherry Cake, Chocolate Mousse Cake, and Bavarian Torte.
Man I forgot about that thing. There is one on the bookshelf beside me that the parents bought in the copyright year!

You'll love the German tater salad at home

It was first sold in 1979. I have no clue how many years it was available. As far as I know, they haven't sold a cookbook since this one.

Found this on eBay. I'm watching my budget right now, or I'd swoop this up. If I can't have it, I'd love someone on here to get it.

I know this isn't "merchandise" but I figured it would fit with the whole nostalgic theme going on...

It's an old 1980's promotional video for The Old Country shot on a 16mm camera...figured some of you would like it...it's fun watching and saying "That's over in...." and "I REMEMBER THAT!" Unfortunately for me I'm a little too young to remember some of these so I had no idea some of these places were even there

Seeing that video made me wish I was born 25 years earlier, thanks for sharing it.

So a friend went to Knoebel's fall event a few months ago and apparently they hold a nice little swap meet style place outside the park where enthusiasts can sell off their old/unwanted theme park merch. Among some of the already cool stuff he sent me (vintage style 1997 Hersheypark postcard, BGT 2007 map, etc), I got some really neat Busch stuff in the process.

Loch Ness postcard
The postcard is undated, but it says Copyright Busch Gardens Old Country, so I assume it's from the 80s or early 90s.

"The Loch Ness Monster reaches speeds in excess of 60 mph while descending a 114 ft 55 degree vertical drop. The twin loops make this a unique and exciting experience."

The other crown jewel of the set. A 1998 BGT brochure. This is currently the oldest brochure in my collection. Brochures used to look cooler back then.
