Welcome!

Welcome to the official site of American Coaster Enthusiasts (ACE), the world's largest club of amusement ride enthusiasts. ACE was founded in 1978 as a not-for-profit, all volunteer club to foster and promote the conservation, appreciation, knowledge and enjoyment of the art of the classic wooden roller coaster and the contemporary steel coaster.

Our club has grown from a handful of members to over 5,000 members representing all 50 states, DC, and 12 countries. We publish a bimonthly newsletter and a quarterly magazine for our members. We also sponsor several events at parks each year. If you love the thrill of the twists, turns, drops, and loops of a roller coaster, this club (and this site) is for you!

The park was known as Six Flags Over Mid-America when the ride made its debut.
