banner measures approximately 36″ x 59″.

This is a “highest and best” auction. Decide the highest bid you’d like
to offer for BOTH banners and email that bid to:

PLEASE put “Banners” in the subject line.

Bidding will end at midnight, May 31, and announcement of the winner and
winning bid amount will be made public on June 1.

Payment will be arranged with the winner after the auction has ended, and

cards).

Proceeds of the auction will be designated by the winner to go to the ACE
Preservation Fund, and/or ACE Archives, and/or National Roller Coaster
Museum and Archives (amount can be designated to any one, or spread among
all
three funds).

ACE Signers on Wicked Cyclone

Those who attended The Great Nor’Easter at SFNE on March 14 and
participated in the construction tour, all were offered to sign one of two pieces of
Cyclone wood. Those two pieces were to be placed ‘somewhere’ on Wicked
Cyclone.

Many of us looked for them yesterday, scanning the structure, but they
were spotted in a very easily seen area. Although I took a photo of them, Jen
McGrath sent the photo attached below (which came out better than mine).

Wicked Cyclone is a LOT of fun, and if you were not able to attend media
day on the 20th, I hope you’ll get to the park very soon to take a ride!

Subj: ACE Sign on Wicked Cyclone

Rus,
Please note the pieces of wood ACE folks signed at Nor’easter was up
yesterday. The sign is located in the queue line as you come to the shaded
portion. If you look to the right wall you will see them proudly hanging. Just
wanted to be sure you pass it along.

Something Wicked this way … has Arrived !

(Agawam, MA, 15 May 2015)

Today a wicked awesome ride unveiled for the media and some roller coaster enthusiasts.  The ride is called “Wicked Cyclone” and it totally lives up to its namesake, and gives riders a wicked fast, wicked smooth, and wicket twisted ride.  There are many element that seemlessly meld from barrel rolls to the couple of unique outside banked (reverse banked) corners.  This ride will keep you guessing and totally enthralled through its 90+ second course.  Enough words… a few pictures should begin to tell the story….
