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

Allegheny Mountain Madness



 

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 Allegheny Mountain Madness to take place at Lakemont Park in Altoona, Pennsylvania, and DelGrosso's Park in Tipton, Pennsylvania. These parks are just 10 minutes away from one another and less than an hour and a half from Idlewild and SoakZone, where many will be gathered that morning. At Lakemont Park attendees will enjoy Leap The Dips, the world's oldest roller coaster, and Skyliner, the park's other classic wood coaster. Both of these roller coasters are remarkable stories of preservation. DelGrosso's Park counts two coaster credits -- a spinning Crazy Mouse and a kiddie coaster, as well as a lot of classic rides and an amazing waterpark themed to Italy. An evening group dinner will include a variety of their food known to be some of the best in the country. The menu will include a half BBQ chicken, spaghetti with DelGrosso's marinara sauce, and Murf's famous potato salad.

Included in Event Registration...

At Lakemont Park, event registration includes one ticket to ride Leap The Dips and one ticket to ride Skyliner. Given the low capacity of these classic rides, event organizers believe that attendees will have the best experience with their visits occurring at various times, rather than everyone descending on the park at once. Those preferring to purchase an Unlimited Ride & Play Pass may redeem the tickets for $6 in credit toward the pass; and that offer is valid on the day of the event, as well as the next day (Sunday, June 26) and on Sunday, July 24, when ACE Western Pennsylvania holds its Gary Baker Memorial Day informal event at the park. The actual ride tickets are valid any operating day during the 2021 season.

At DelGrosso's Park, event registration includes the following:

  • An All-Day Fun Pass that includes access to all rides and Laguna Splash waterpark.
  • A picnic dinner as described in the schedule below.

Double the Fun

Join ACE Western Pennsylvania for a second event on the same day! Before running for the Allegheny Mountains, start at the foothills of the Laurel Mountains. ACE Western Pennsylvania invites all ACE members and their guests to attend ACE Goes IdleWILD at Idlewild and SoakZone beginning earlier that morning 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 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! The event includes morning ERT on all of the aforementioned rides, plus a great all-you-can-eat picnic lunch! Click the ACE Goes IdleWILD event logo above for more information on that event!
