Covid-19 Considerations

The greatest concern of American Coaster Enthusiasts is the health, safety and enjoyment of its members. To ensure continued safety, ACE is closely monitoring the ever-evolving (and rapidly improving) COVID-19 situation. As a result, we ask that you respect the wishes of ACE and the park.

Please follow and respect all safety procedures instituted by Waldameer & Water World, our host for the event. The park requires that those who are not fully vaccinated wear face coverings (properly over both the mouth and nose) at all times while in the park, except when actively eating. You can view the park's safety procedures here []


We realize that you may not see you ACE friends frequently and that you'll be happy to see one another, but given health concerns, we suggest that you follow common protocols for health safety. Not everyone is fully vaccinated and everyone has different comfort levels in terms of being in close proximity to others. Please be respectful of other members and allow a safe distance between one another, unless it's made clear by all involved that closer proximity is welcomed.


Registered Flying High 2021 attendees will receive an email shortly before the event that may contain additional details regarding the park's current health safety protocols and the procedures that event organizers will be implementing to ensure that the event is comfortable and safe for everyone.
