After finding a long lost friend Scott Connor over the internet, he invited me to Winterfest which was held at S.F.O.T., and it was going to include a tour of Titans construction site. I was hooked, and joined A.C.E. the moment I got home. Since then, I have attended Titans Media Day, Lonestarcoasterthon 2001, Winterfest at S.F.A.W., Superman Ultimate Flight Media Day at S.F.O.G., Fiesta Fest 2002, Shark Bash 2002 at S.W.S.A., Big Bad Johns' Media Day at Magic Springs, and the first A.C.E. event at Magic Springs in about 10 years, Midwest Coaster Blast.
The one thing I am the proudest of is being allowed to take pictures of the reconstruction of Big Bad John during the Winter of 2002, and being invited to the coasters media day in May of 2002. I learned alot about the amusement industry that Winter.
The govenor of Arkansas Mike Huckabee, his wife, and a couple of other Themeparks.LLC officials on Big Bad Johns' Media Day. The park gave these out as freebies.
MORE COMING SOON
I took this as "the first public" train pulled into the station. Even though Govenor Huckabee doesn't really like coasters, I think he liked Big Bad John.
I'll move these 2 pictures over to Magic Springs as soon as I load the other pictures. I was invited as an A.C.E. member, thats why I put them here.
