The Amusing Ads Archive - PTC 1994

Philadelphia Toboggan Coasters, Inc, has long been the premier wooden roller coaster train manufacturer. As the ad states, the company started back in 1902, making it the oldest currently operating coaster company in the world.

Known originally for creating both wild rides and tranquil carousels, today they focus on supplying and maintaining wooden coaster trains. Both the wooden rides the company has made and their carousels are regarded as some of the finest attractions the industry has had to offer.

Now facing stiff competition in the wooden train market from both Great Coasters and the Gravity Group, it seems it may be time to see PTC surprise us all with a new generation of trains as well. As the ad says - "tradition created not followed" - looks like a perfect time to create a new tradition.
