Event Details
The day began with an 745 am arrival and check in. Around 60 American Coaster Enthusiasts members arrived for a day of fun. This is the first official ACE event at the park with Exclusive Ride Time on Sheikra. Our ride time on Sheikra began at  830 am and oops the ride unfortunately was experiencing some technical difficulties. We then had some free time until our 1pm lunch buffet which I spent riding Montu, Kumba and doing some photos. Lunch was all you could eat chicken and ribs and it was good. Our lunch hour was followed by about an hour discussion with Mark Rose the VP of ride engineering in which he discussed alot of stuff pertaining to the roller coasters. Also a gift bag with a Sheikra Tshirt, button pin and cool note pad. So now to the fun part to make up for morning ride time BGT offered the club an 1 and 1/2  hour ride time on SheiKra during the day. They let us use the single rider line and only our group was allowed on the second train. It was awesome as we could ride 2 times in a row and then right back around again with no waiting. The people in the regular line were not happy seeing us get lots of rides (membership has its privilege). The event really turned out to be great and it seems everybody had a great time at BGT. Many thanks to BGT and ACE for a great day at the park. Below are lots of photos from today including: Sheikra, Montu, Scorpion and some photos of the tigers at the park.
