Working with Paramount was a new experience for FASCO. 

Paramount's Carowinds is owned and operated by Paramount Parks.  Paramount Parks is a leading developer and operator of world-class theme parks and location-based entertainment attractions, entertaining more than 13 million guests annually.

FASCO helped design and create over thirty signs for the amusement park.  Much of the time was spent researching what fonts and images to use to give the project a "Beachy-1940s" feel. 

With the help of some friends around our Nicholasville, Kentucky shop, we were able to make the tight deadline that had been set without sacrificing any quality in our work.

Selected by Paramount to re-theme a large section of the Carowinds Park, The Weber Group designed and fabricated the larger-than-life fish, hamburger, and shark.  They also provided the boats, airplanes, and other creative accent pieces to give the full-effect.

The Weber Group, an architectural firm based out of Louisville, also designed the Tomb Raider addition at Paramount's Kings Island near Cincinnati, Ohio. 

"It was probably one of the most fun projects I've had the opportunity to work on in my 25 years of sign-making."         
-Mike Burrell, Owner of FASCO
