A month just for thrill-seekers
Did you know there’s a month dedicated to the scream-worthy rides we love? There’s more to roller coasters than just the drop we feel in our stomachs as we rush down at a soaring speed. June is a time to marvel at the history, engineering and architecture that brought us these beloved rides.
“Roller coasters fill us with fears, thrills, laughter and screams, but most importantly, they offer us the opportunity to make unforgettable memories with family and friends. American Coaster Enthusiasts (ACE) is proud to take this moment to celebrate this anniversary with parks across North America during World Roller Coaster Appreciation Month.”Elizabeth Ringas, Communications Director, American Coaster Enthusiasts
