"Blast to the Past Trivia Game" 1988 - How to Win

It’s 1988 and time to play Disneyland’s “Blast to the Past… Trivia Game”. Simply answer three questions correctly and you win!

Look at all the great prizes; Paddles Balls, Cokes, Jr. Slinkies, Yo Yo’s, Fuzzy Dice, Frisbees, Hula Hoops and more!

Suppose you happened to visit the park a lot in spring of 1988, like every day? I bet you could pick up tons of discarded tickets that were answered incorrectly. You could take those cards, rub off all the possible answers and start to figure out the correct answers to future tickets.

If you collected enough “looser” tickets you could actually figure out ALL of the correct answers.

This portable list looks pretty complete, there are a few hand written answers on the backs of the last two cards.

There are at least a hundred cards in this collection, more than will fit on my big scanner! I wonder if the person who collected these got a lot of cool prizes?

Whoa, so you have around 100 of these cards?? Did you pick up a lot of them back in 1988?

Seeing these cards reminds me of the character tickets for some other anniversary, and I would rummage through the trash at the front gate to collect as many losers as I could.

OR, you could take your card to the nearest souvenir shop, take one of the penlight flashlights that were for sale, turn it on and hold it underneath the card to read the right answers. NOT THAT I EVER DID THAT! (But it did work.)
