Summer time brings over 100 members of the American Coaster Enthusiasts to Utah for the Preservation Conference. First up was a factory tour at the S&S Power Inc. facilities. Arrival time and check in was at 10:30 am and the event began at 11:00 am. S&S Power makers of the popular Space Shot and Turbo Drop tower rides and various other types of amusement park rides and roller coasters opened there doors and allowed full access to there facilities. We were divided into smaller groups with some of the S&S engineers providing the tours. We started our tour heading outside to a large storage area where rides and equipment are being finalized for shipment. There were alot of parts from one of the Screamin Squirl rides and several sets of supports for one of S&S's Screamin Swings along with a shot tower. Along our walk to one of the buildings were various ride and car parts from many of the older Arrow roller coaster. In the first building we entered they were working on the cars for one of the new Screamin Squirl rides. In other buildings we were shown some of the testing equipment and other assembly equipment used. Several of the buildings contain large quantities of pre-manufactured ride parts from electrical, structural and mechanical parts. Lunch was served around 1:00 pm as S&S provided sloppy joes and vegetable plates. Stan Checkets owner of S&S Power was on hand for a brief welcome and introduction. S&S also provided free Tshirts as a special gift.
