No Coasters, No Problem!

Willowbrook, Illinois, January 19th, 2013. It's cold. There is a forecast of snow. It's the middle of another Northern winter. Sounds like a great place to have a coaster bash right?

It's what the American Coaster Enthusiasts call "No Coaster Con" and the name says it all. These coaster and themepark fanatics love the amusement industry so much, that even when they can't ride, they still want to talk about their passion; coasters. Beginning at 9:00am, this ACE event brings speakers and invitees from parks and manufacturers across the country to give insights and tell stories about their business. Parks such as Silver Dollar City, Dollywood, and Schlitterbahn Waterparks and manufacturers like Philadelphia Toboggan Coasters and Sally Corporation all joined the festivities to give updates. Of course, Waldameer & Water World was excited to be invited again to this awesome event as well.

All these juicy details and more were shared, giving the ACER's something to talk about until summer rolls around again.
