|The picture shows a view of all (48) Old Paragon Amusement Park Nantasket Beach Massachusetts Advertising Ticket Coupons in this lot. There are (5) styles of coupons in this lot. All of these different ticket coupons are believed to be from the 1970s. There are multiple coupons except for one (top center) that offers up to $8.00 of tickets for $2.95. The others say $10.00.|
The smaller two ticket coupons are identical except that they are printed in different colors on different color paper. These were from Stop & Shop and Bradlees stores for Stop & Shop Days at Paragon Park. The offer on these is $2.00 worth of ride tickets for $1.00.
The other ticket coupons are basically the same except they are in different colors and have a different price. One has a ten ticket strip at a reduced rate of $2.95 and the other is at $3.25. They each advertise (57) different attractions and one says ''3 New Rides''.
To judge the sizes the two larger coupons each measure about 4-1/4'' x 3''. The coupons appear to be in mint condition as pictured. Below here, for reference, is some historical background information on Paragon Park:
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Paragon Park circa 1914
Paragon Park was an amusement park located on Nantasket Beach in Hull, Massachusetts. It closed in 1984.
Among the amusement rides in operation during Paragon Park's history was a traditional style carousel with hand-crafted horses, a bumper cars ride known as ''The Scooters'', a Ferris wheel, a horror themed dark ride called ''Kooky Kastle'', and a giant rollercoaster known as ''The Comet''. There was also a ski lift type ride called the ''Sky Ride'', an automobile themed ride known as ''Turnpike Cars'' (later improved and re-named ''Indy 500''), and a water ride called ''Bermuda Triangle'' (later revamped as ''Congo Cruise'').
Today, the only surviving remnants of Paragon Park on the boardwalk are the historic carousel and clock tower. The rest of the site is devoted to condominium development.
