|Waldameer Amusement Park ad in the Erie Dispatch-Herald from 1927.|
"Boys and Girls Save Your Tin Cans! Any old can and 3¢ entitles you to a ticket good on any ride. The more tin cans you bring to Waldameer the more rides you get!
One can and 3¢ for one ride.
No limit to the number of cans you bring, so put your cans on a string and come to Waldameer Friday, July 15th, 1927."
Can you imagine some kid dragging twenty tin cans behind him on his way to Waldameer? I wonder what the park did with all the tin cans?
Here is an ad which includes the Top Ten rides at Waldameer Park in 1941: Top Ten Rides at Waldameer Park in 1941.
