ACE's Archives and Collections

To recognize the importance of ACE’s collection, ACE will begin to place its archival inventories on ACEonline soon. In this massive undertaking, thousands of contributions have been inventoried, with many more to be completed. Since its founding in 1978, ACE has been collecting information to document:

  • The history and development of roller coasters
  • The history of amusement parks that have, or have had, roller coasters, even if those parks are no longer in existence
  • Roller coaster manufacturers, designers, and suppliers
  • The history of ACE and its members (and we have started to receive items from members of other clubs and associations as well)

ACE’s goal to accumulate a world-class collection of equipment, artifacts, and contemporary and historical records of roller coasters, their amusement parks, and the people who build, design, and ride them. We hope that you will consider helping this effort by making donations to the ACE Archives.

For information on donating to ACE’s collection, please contact ACE’s History & Preservation Director, Lisa Zigweid. All inquiries will be held in confidence.
