General Information about Events

ACE hosts Coaster Con, our national convention, annually as well as several other smaller conferences at parks around the globe. Our events are a great opportunity for fellow ACEers to gather together to ride coasters. Typically, our events include:

  • Group rates for park admission
  • One or more picnic-style meals
  • Exclusive Ride Time! (ERT), which is time we get to ride the coasters when the park and/or the coaster is closed to the public.
  • Hotel lodging at group rates.

Upcoming Events

We have a great line-up of events slated for the upcoming months. Note that all information is tentative until we actually announce the event with a flyer! Click on an event for more details, including the event flyer, costs, schedule, directions, registration instructions, and the latest news about the event. Click on a column header to sort the table by that column.

Events Lodging Summary

ACE negotiates special rates for some area hotels for ACE events. Each event's flyer contains detailed information about the negotiated rates and procedures for making reservations at each hotel.

When making your reservations at any of the lodging facilities for any of the events, please pay close attention to the reservation code and provide that code when making your reservation. Also, some hotels may not offer the discount if you contact the chain's toll-free number, so you may need to contact the hotel directly to obtain the discount.

Important Information for Non-Members

ACE encourages non-members to attend our events as a way to "check out" our club before deciding whether to join. However, non-members may only register to attend ACE events as a guest of a member who is also registered to attend the event. That member will be responsible for the actions and behavior of their guests.
