STEEL FORCE at Dorney Park in Allentown, PA, dominates the landscape.
TALON, Dorney's first inverted coaster, new in 2001.

Dorney Park, Hershey Park, and Williams Grove are the announced sites of the ACE Annual Conference on 17-June through 22-June 2001, followed by a park-sponsored event at Knoebel's Park on 23-June.

True enthusiasts won't miss visiting WILLIAMS GROVE (PA), too, for its vintage Cyclone wooden coaster, Wildcat (Wild Maus-like) steel coaster, kiddie coaster, and the feel of an amusement park from a lost era!

The 150 year-old Williams Grove Park has over 40 rides in a shady setting not duplicated by modern parks. Step into Williams Grove Park for the feeling of a park from the 1940s and 50s, with updated rides.


Billed as
"Coaster Zombies Invade
Williams Grove,"
with some continuing their 9-days of parks from OH to PA, this splinter group included
Coaster Zombies,
Florida Coaster Club,
MACC members,
the ACE Regional Rep., and
Wooden Coaster Club (photographer).

This photo almost could have been resnapped as Florida Coaster Club Invaded PKD on 10/1/00.
