7 Parks... 22 Coasters... Countless Friends!


Saturday, June 25, 2022

To cap off the week of Coaster Con 44, which concludes at Kennywood the previous day, ACE Western Pennsylvania invites all ACE members and their guests to attend ACE Goes IdleWILD at Idlewild and SoakZone on Saturday, June 25, 2022. Come discover this amazing family-oriented park in a lush wooded setting. Idlewild offers Rollo Coaster, a fun hillside junior wooden coaster; and Wild Mouse, a unique and exceptional version of the ride set among the park's trees. Attendees will also find a a number of classic rides including Adult Hand Cars -- if you remember riding little hand-powered cars on tracks at parks as a kid, this is a larger one that accommodates adults! For the kid in all of us, the park offers a ride into Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood, based on the values of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood. Additionally, SoakZone is an awesome family water park and Story Book Forest is great fun for families with small children and all of those adults wishing to relive their childhood!
