Theme, Amusement, and Waterparks

NEW BRAUNFELS, SAN ANTONIO & KEMAH, TX – More than one-hundred roller coaster enthusiasts from across North America will caravan to Schlitterbahn Waterpark Resort, Six Flags Fiesta Texas, SeaWorld San Antonio and Kemah Boardwalk to extend their Coaster Con XXXIV event at Six Flags Over Texas with a tour of central Texas and Gulf Coast attractions June 23-26, 2011. The four-day traveling celebration of all things roller coaster and waterslide, the first ever Tour of Texas for American Coaster Enthusiasts (ACE), will start Thursday at Schlitterbahn – the #1 rated waterpark in the world according to Amusement Today's annual Golden Ticket Awards. The tour will move on to San Antonio for visits at Six Flags Fiesta Texas on Friday and SeaWorld San Antonio on Saturday. The tour will conclude at Kemah Boardwalk in Kemah, Texas on Sunday. Highlights of the ACE Tour of Texas include hours and hours of riding roller coasters and water rides.

The roller coaster and water ride aficionados in attendance are eager to get their fill of floating "airtime" sensations, spine-tingling slides and exhilarating bursts of speed during the Exclusive Ride Time (ERT) and Exclusive Splash Time (EST) sessions on roller and water coasters. Included in the lineup are ERT and EST rides on the Dragon's Revenge and the #1 rated Master Blaster at Schlitterbahn, the floorless Superman Krypton Coaster at Fiesta Texas, the super-slithery Steel Eel at SeaWorld and the wooden Boardwalk Bullet at Kemah Boardwalk. Many are here for other reasons too. Attendees will enjoy camaraderie with like-minded people and share stories of coasters ridden in all corners of the world as many ACE members have traveled to Europe, Central America and Asia to enjoy that next great thrill. Anywhere there is a coaster, you will find an ACEer. ACEers will also enjoy an a hot tub party at Schlitterbahn, reserved seating for shows at Fiesta Texas and SeaWorld and Boardwalk Beast speedboat rides at Kemah Boardwalk.
