Alexander: It’s the most wonderful time of the year!
The dog days of summer are here!
And nothing says “summer” like the annual ACE Coaster Con! It’s a big one this year, too: Coaster Con XL! (Coaster Con 40). Since everything’s bigger in Texas, what better place to play host than one of North America’s most bustling regional entertainment playgrounds: San Antonio!

Alexander: It’s always a good day when you’re at Dollywood, even when Lightning Rod is closed or threatens to be closed.
The event may be “Lightning Rod Run”, but whether Lighting Rod runs or not, this is one of the most beloved ACE regional events of the year.

Alexander: Our Preservation Conference continued to the final host park, Six Flags Over Georgia, and with it came more than a little rainfall. It was simply too wet to have the camera out until after dinner, which took place in the picnic grove behind Blue Hawk.

Alexander: The American Southeast is full of amusement park gems.
From Alabama Splash Adventure we jump to Lake Winnepesaukah near Chattanooga (but technically in Georgia) to enjoy some really special vintage rides and a few modern ones!

Welcome one and all to CCCK’s domestic debut: ACE’s 2017 Preservation Conference!
Our journey begins at Alabama Splash Adventure, a small park consisting of a water park, a kiddie area, and a great wooden coaster.
In 2010 the “dry side” of the park closed and a majority of the rides were removed, leaving just the tiny water park.

Alexander: Today is the last day of the ACE South of the Border tour.
But we still have an amazing last day of Mexicoasters!

Alexander: Who here’s ready for a “Six Flags Day”?
(consider carefully before answering)
Today we’re visiting what was — for a lot of ACE South of the Border attendees — the sole remaining SixFlags park to check off their lists: Six Flags Mexico.

Alexander: Greetings, everyone!
In the wake of our launch of Cabin Crew Coaster Kings, we want everyone to know that we are still 100% here for the parks of California — whether it be major national parks, regional parks, or even the larger Family Entertainment Centers of SoCal.
Today we’re visiting two of the smallest parks in the region: Castle Amusement Park in Riverside, and Scandia Ontario. Continue reading “Castle Park and Scandia Ontario Update”
“Sunny day! Sweeping the clouds away!”
“On my way to where the air is sweet!”
“Can you tell me how to get – how to get to Sesame Street?!”
Alexander: As it turns out, Sesame Street is just a hop, skip, and a jump from Bosque Mágico! Our next park on the ACE South of the Border tour is Parque Plaza Sesamo!

Alexander: Welcome to Cabin Crew Coaster King’s maiden voyage!
The American Coaster Enthusiast’s South of the Border Tour!
I have been a member of ACE since 2000. With their help (and the help of my enabling family) I’ve racked up over 750 coasters since I first began riding in 1994.
Many of CCCK’s adventures will be with the amazing people I’ve met through ACE, and in the case of our first adventure, over 100 ACErs are here to party in Mexico!
