Help Support Lost Parks of Northern California

Phone Cover Display

Not sure what to give your loved one for Christmas this year?

Want to get that amusement park fanatic in your family the gift that says, “I understand how much you love parks!”

Looking to support a worthy cause in the process?

Then do we have the gift for you!

We’ve created several different cell phone back cover designs – all with our local lost parks in mind. From the shores of San Mateo, to the wintry scenes of Santa’s Village – you can be stylin’ and profilin’ with the most unique phone case out there.

  The cases are good for regular duty, bumps and scrapes, and they currently are made for:

-iPhone 4/4s

-iPhone 5/5s

– Samsung Galaxy S3

– Samsung Galaxy s4

We’re offering these functional collectables for the introductory price of $20, plus shipping.You can’t find an awesome case for cheaper than that!

Plus, 100% of all proceeds from the sales of these covers goes directly to deferring the cost of the Lost Parks series.

As some of you know, we don’t make money off the series, but it still does cost money to produce. From gas to food, photo rights and tolls, it adds up quickly.

If you’re interested in purchasing or picking one up, please e-mail: kris@greatamericanthrills.net with your requests. We are currently working on a storefront, but are not quite ready to debut it just yet.

We take all forms of payment, including PayPal, credit cards and cash / check.

So, preserve the past by preserving your phone – get your official Lost Parks phone cover today!


We’re Presenting at the San Mateo County History Museum!

Great American Thrills is honored to announce that we’ve been selected as a presenter in the San Mateo County History Museum’s “Courthouse Docket” series, exploring the rich history of the region.

Come down on October 26th at 1:00pm and see “The Next Huell Howser” – aka Kris Rowberry – show you how you can still experience some of our bygone amusement parks…today!

Who knows, you just might learn something, too!
