ACE New England – General Info for 2016 – Correction +

The operating hours for Funtown/Splashtown USA have been corrected – see
below. My apologies if you’ve already written the times in your calendar in
ink.

A little reminder that if you need a New England coaster fix “now”,
Funworld Game Center, in Nashua, New Hampshire is open year-round (but closed on
Mondays during the school year). They’ve got an indoor Wisdom Orient
Express that adults can ride.

And if mountain coasters appeal to you, many in New England operate year
round:

Jiminy Peak, Hancock, MA –

Berkshire East, Charlemont, MA –

Stay warm!

ACE New England’s The Great Nor’Easter event

Hi all,

Because it’s not stated on the flier and someone has asked, the answer is
yes, each ACE member may bring along one guest to The Great Nor’Easter,
being held at Lake Compounce on April 2, 2016.

The flier is attached (some may receive this twice because my original
email blast rejected a whole slew of names).

Happy almost-February, and hope to see you on April 2!

See you in the queue,
Rus
