American Coaster Enthusiasts (ACE)

Founded in 1978, American Coaster Enthusiasts (ACE) is a non-profit organization of nearly 7,000 members from all 50 US states and more than a dozen other countries. ACE members commonly refer to themselves as “ACEers.”

ACE is the world’s largest ride enthusiast organization, and its members are the most educated, dedicated, and passionate amusement park guests. ACE’s activities are extensive and include award-winning publications, action-packed events, and exhaustive preservation efforts. ACE is highly visible in the mainstream media: local television stations and newspapers often consider ACE events in their area to be major news items; ACE officials are frequently on hand for the debut of major new roller coasters at amusement and theme parks; and ACE has been prominently featured on numerous shows made for cable networks such as The Discovery Channel. Ultimately, ACE’s mission is to promote and enjoy roller coasters everywhere, regardless of type or size.
