Club Membership Cards - 1971

Here's a fun look at a few "Club" discount cards from 1971. Just like Disneyland had its Magic Kingdom Club other parks had their own clubs as well.

Up first a multi-use card for Movieland Wax Museum, Japanese Village and the Palace of Living Art (?) offering a 10% discount.

Knott's Berry Farm had the "Prospector's Club" (later to become the "Adventures Club") that offered special "Pac-o-fun" ticket books.

Lion Country Safari offered a "special value" for its club members.

Convertibles not permitted.... Why would you even try that?

And last but not least, the Magic Mountain Club also offers its members a 10% discount.

These are great. I guess Magic Mt. didn't want to waste any time or money on any kind of fancy graphics!

"Palace of Living Art(?)" I think Movieland first had a separate admission for their Palace of Living Art and then started including it with the rest of the museum.

Great bunch of stuff! I especially love the Knott's "Prospector's Club" and the "Lion Country Safari" card.

Joe Prevratil is the signature on the first card (Movieland/Japanese Village) who went on to run the Queen Mary for Jack and Bonita Wrather at the end of their lives. He replaced Mike Downs (who ran Marineland and was a neighbor of mine).

Hmmm Movieland, Palace of Living Art, Japanese Village, Marineland ... Queen Mary.

Anybody see a trend here?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but later, the "Magic Mountain Club" would be remodelled as "the Troll Patrol" (as in the Troll mascots used later).

Would it be safe to consider the Troll Patrol as an ur-fan club for the Troll mascots as well?
