Here was the e-mail I just sent:
Hi again, it is me.
I just had a great thought for your merchandise department! Two thoughts just hit me a moment ago; the kids nowadays seem to be into vintage Tee-shirts and retro 80's items... and...now is the time to have a few products ordered for next season.
Therefore, consider creating a few items for each "big ride" in the park that are considered vintage. Like vintage prints on tee shirts such the old "I survived the Loch Ness Monster" with the faded washed out look that kids love. I actually have the original shirt mentioned above and the old style Loch Ness Design is quite cool I must say; if you do not have any record of the old merchandise I can send you a picture of this as a model. It was the design of the Loch Ness that looped twice and had the single horn on the nose with the serpent tongue.
People really loved my original 1984 "I survived the Big Bad Wolf tee shirt while I in the park the last day of the coaster's operation. I even had folks tell me that they wished they had kept theirs. (This kind of sparked the idea). So it is a win-win. Adults who visited in their youth from the 80's will love the old shirts that take them back memory lane; and the teens will like them too because that is what is cool to wear at the moment.
I really do think guests would be excited to see the old designs again.. maybe even the old Gordon Dragon on a vintage style logo tee could make a return!
Speaking of vintage, that brings me to another concept. Remember the Little Nessie kid coaster; and Die Katzchen? I was wondering if BGW would consider placing a little version of each or at least some of the coasters. These do not have to be extravagant like the Grover Coaster; but something that the "real little kids" can ride while one of their parents take off to ride the big ride. I remember well that I wanted to ride the BIG coasters so bad, but at least I could imagine I was riding the big ride when I was on the little versions. I am not so good with naming rides but perhaps something like "The Giffin's Nest", "Chariot of the Sun", "The little Avalanche", and of course bring back the title 'Little Nessie."
As always, I appreciate all the park does and provides for all of their guests and hope Christmas Town is a continual success. Speaking of; for next year, may I re-suggest having the park remain open until New Years. The park would be packed if there were a huge fireworks celebration and of course beer to be sold.. it would only be one more weekend and the locals would LOVE to have another family fun place to ring in the New Year!
