Post-Convention Events June 25

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!

Join ACE Western Pennsylvania for a second event on the same day! Allegheny Mountain Madness to take place at Lakemont Park in Altoona and DelGrosso's Park in Tipton, both less than 90 minutes from Idlewild and SoakZone. For Lakemont Park, attendees will receive a ticket to ride Leap The Dips, the world's oldest roller coaster and another ticket to ride Skyliner, the park's other classic wood coaster. The ride tickets may also be exchanged for a $6 credit toward an Unlimited Ride & Play Pass on either the event day, or the next day, Sunday, June 26 (and the ride tickets are valid all summer as well) At DelGrosso's, attendees can enjoy 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 sampling of their food known to be some of the best in the country. The menu will include a half barbequed chicken, spaghetti with DelGrosso's marinara sauce, and Murf's famous potato salad. Attendees will be able to register for both ACE Goes IdleWILD and Allegheny Mountain Madness at the same time! For more information on the event, click the Allegheny Mountain Madness logo above.
