    @TomW Nice collection! Never seen some of them before, like the 1990 Europe's Premier Leisure Park and the Alton Towers with Intercity :)

    Found this leaflet from 1998 the other day, quite a cool piece of marketing! Look at those prices!

    After inflation a ticket costing ~£19 in 1998 should only cost ~£30 in 2017...

    An online ticket is £32 or BOGOF is £26.40 so to be fair it's not that out of line with inflation.

    I was speaking about on-the-gate prices. Sorry if that wasn't clear. These prices are around £20 more than inflation would dictate.

    The gate price was fairly robust though then, in terms of the percentage of people who paid it.

    Always loved the 2009 map. The cover art & finish were gorgeous. And the map actually managed to both look good & function.

    Oh to reminisce...

    [​IMG] i have no real 'rare' items just a few park maps from previous years and some on ride photos from the haunted house and log flume from late 90's early 00's, I also have some small place mats for mugs that are AT from around the same time. Will see if I can find a photo.
