Gurnee Park Map & Guide Covers 1981 - 1989

Post by RandyV » Fri Nov 18, 2005 9:41 pm

Scanner is working OT tonight. Here are the Gurnee Park Map & Guide book covers from the 1981 through 1989. I have included the only two Santa Clara guides I have -- from 1982 and 1983. Santa Clara definitely had the better cover for '82! :)

Enjoy!

1981

1982 Gurnee / Santa Clara

1983 - both parks had the same guide cover. Notice, the Gurnee guide used a picture of the Santa Clara Edge and had a large 1983 on it.

1984 (the last Marriott guide) / 1985 (first Six Flags guide)

1986 / 1987

1988 / 1989

Interesting to see "A Bally Company" on SFGAm's 1986 and 1987 brochures. I wasn't imagining things back then. Thanks for sharing these covers. :P

It's rare to see a promo shot of Shockwave where it isn't going through the corkscrews.
