In the 70's that shop sold cheap jewelry. The stand that sold skulls and other island paraphernalia was on Skull Island next to the barge landing.

It may not always be the natural themeing, but Six Flags still themes theirs rides, sections, restaurants, and shops.

See Pics Below.

Default Re: Pierre's Treasures

I recall Pierre's treasures, and I think I even remember the double entrance. I bought a pretty fine shatter-proof plastic sword there, and at least one Six Flags standard issue leather braided bullwhip, which was stamped "Made in Spain," if I recollect. Seems like at least one of my friends invariably bought a bullwhip on every trip we made to Six Flags. Thankfully nobody ever seemed to master the art of "popping" the thing, try as they might, thus preserving many Fort Worth eyeballs.

Pierre's Treasures was dark, rustic, and, as mentioned, filled with wonderful piratical / Indian knick-knacks. I would give my left little finger to run in there again from the River, with my best friends, on a summer day.

Warner Bros is not theme, it's amusement propoganda. It's what is bringing down the park. And the restaurants are quickly becoming chain restaurants.

Perhaps you're right but everytime I see a WB character in the park, they are swamped by kids. And that is a big reason parents, and their wallets, keep coming to the park. And that is why WB characters won't be leaving at least without a fight.

As far as food is concerned your right on point. It still amazes me that no Tex-Mex is sold in the park.
