California’s Great America opens for the 2019 season on March 23, but for ACE members, the season typically kicks off much earlier than that. Such was the case on March...
NorCal ACEer Michael L. Boodley, co-founder of Great Coasters International, Inc., was awarded Honorary ACE Membership at the 2009 Phoenix Phall Phunphest at Knoebels Amusement Resort in October. The award is in recognition of Michael’s numerous significant contributions to wooden roller coasters and the amusement industry. He also rode the Coney Island Cyclone into the Guinness Book of World Records! See photo above.
Way to go, Michael! Congratulations!
