The first part of the Spring Conference Event held by the American Coaster Enthusiasts was at Beech Bend Park in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Members of the American Coaster Enthusiasts spent the day at the park with arranged activities through out the day including various contests for prizes, Haunted House Tour and a great welcome by the park staff. I arrived around 3:00 pm to pick up my registration and goody bag. After a greeting from ACE and Beech Bend to kick off the Sprng Conference it was time for the Kentucky Rumbler tour. So what happens when you let a bunch of coaster enthusiasts have free run of your roller coaster - see below. So we got to climb underneath and into the roller coaster to get some cool views of the ride. Along with our tour there were a couple of GCII employees on hand to answer questions. After the tour it was time for some dinner and auctioning of coaster parts related to the Kentucky Rumbler roller coaster. For me it was a short visit with the highlight being the tour of the Kentucky Rumbler roller coaster. Thanks to all at Beech Bend and ACE for a great time and start to a fun weekend.
