Covid-19 Considerations

The greatest concern of American Coaster Enthusiasts is the health, safety and enjoyment of its members. To ensure continued safety, ACE is closely monitoring the ever-evolving COVID-19 situation. As a result, we ask that you respect the wishes of ACE and the park.

Please follow and respect all safety procedures instituted by Waldameer, our host for the event. This includes wearing face coverings as requested by the park. You can view safety procedures here. When arriving for morning event check-in at the park, as a courtesy the volunteers working, please wear a face covering when approaching the check-in area. The volunteers will be wearing a face covering as well. We likewise suggest and encourage wearing face covering when in close proximity to one another when socializing prior to entering the park.

We realize that many of you attending may be seeing some of your ACE friends for the first time in quite a while. We know that you'll be happy to see one another, but given health concerns, we kindly ask that you refrain from shaking hands, hugging and any other physical contact outside those in your group/family.  Everyone has different comfort levels in terms of being in close proximity to others. Please be respectful of other members and allow a six-foot distance between one another, unless it's made clear by all involved that closer proximity is welcomed.

Event Meals

Waldameer regrets that due to complications related to the current health crisis, they are not able to offer a catered group meal. Event attendees are welcome to pre-purchase a value meal for just $7.25. The purchase must be made at the time of registration,

Those purchasing a value meal can choose from four options: Hot Dog, chicken nuggets (6-piece), hamburger or cheeseburger; and each meal comes with French fries, 16oz soft drink and an ice cream cup. The meals are redeemable at the park's main refreshment center.
