I swear many years back they had a promotion whereas everyone got something upon entering the gate. I remember me and my brother getting little trading pins. I think mine was a panda swinging on a palm tree (it was a two-piece pin connected by a little chain). Then when we entered the park we scanned our tickets through a machine to see if we won anything else (which we didn't, but hey! we got pins!) This was back in the day of paper tickets, but I can't remember the year. Late 80s/earlier 90s I think.
Anyways.... I though this was what YoAMD was going to be like. That everyone would at least get a little something. Not the all-the-hype-and-none-of-the-experience thing.
