Host Parks:

ACE will enjoy Six Flags St. Louis on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, June 19 to 21, 2016

Opened in 1971 as Six Flags Over Mid-America, this was the last park built by the Six Flags Corporation. Its wooden coaster collection is unique in that each of the three wooden coasters operate with rolling stock from different manufacturers. PTC trains grace Screamin’ Eagle, the classic John Allen woodie that is notable as being the designer’s personal favorite. The Boss is the largest CCI coaster ever constructed and features three Gerstlauer trains. The wooden twister, American Thunder, features GCII’s articulated Millenium Flier trains.

The park is also home to six steel coasters, including a mirror-image Batman the Ride, Mr. Freeze: Reverse Blast -- also a mirror to the ride of the same name in Texas, and an Arrow Mine Train that opened with the park. Ninja, a custom Arrow/Vekoma looping coaster, Pandemonium spinning coaster and Vekoma Boomerang round out the offerings.


The ACE banquet wll take place on Tuesday Evening, June 21, in St. Louis.

ACE will enjoy Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari on Wednesday and Thursday,
June 22 and 23, 2016

Staking claim to the slogan, “The Nation’s First Theme Park” Holiday World dates back to 1946 when Louis Koch opened Santa Claus Land to entertain famlies and children who travelled to Santa Claus, Indiana, expecting to see the Jolly Old Soul.

Since then, the park has expanded to include multiple holidays and is now known as Holiday World & Splashin Safari. Holiday World is known for its exceptional hospitality, cleaniless and innovative rides. The park was presented with the coveted Applause Award in 2004 and has received numerous Golden Ticket Awards from trade publication Amusement Today.

Holiday World is well-known in enthusiast circles for its outstanding collection of wooden coasters: The Raven, The Legend and The Voyage. In 2015, Holiday World introduced Thunderbird, the first launched B&M wing coaster in the world.

Splashin Safari doesn’t play second fiddle to the theme park It too is home to some award-winning and record-breaking attractions, including WIldebeest, a hydro-magnetic water coaster and its even longer cousin, Mammoth, a six-person hydro-magnetic water coaster.
