European Coaster Club is top-notch!

Tuesday, February 1, 2000 2:12 PM
I decided to join the Eurpoean Coaster Club a few weeks ago after getting a sample of First Drop, the club's magazine, when they used a few Guide to The Point MF photos. I got my membership kit already! I can't believe how quick it was. I look forward to more great magazines, and hopefully some events in Ohio!

The big difference between ECC and ACE is the quality of publications. First Drop (ECC magazine) arrives once every two months and is chock full of cutting edge info. Justin Garanovic, president of ECC, puts a lot of work into the magazine and uses his abundant contacts in the industry to the fullest to bring us breaking news. For example, FD had the first layouts of the SFO floorless.

ACE, on the other hand, publishes two magazines: Rollercoaster! and ACE News. Rollercoaster! is mainly a collection of articles and pictures by members. RC arrives once every three months. ACE News is the more informative of the two, covering announcements and ACE events. It arrives once every two months or so. The big plus for ACE is the events. ACE holds several exclusive events over the year. ECC does the same, but who's gonna travel to Europe. :) However, ECC membership will get you into most park events, such as Coastermania at CP or Stark Raven Mad a Holiday World.

Bottom line: I'm a member of both. ECC for the publications, ACE for the publications and events.

If you're having trouble with your membership, I recommend going to www.aceonline.org and email the membership director. He's usually pretty good on taking care of problems.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the info, I wish I could get a copy of the First Drop magazine, and review it before deciding to join.

Yes, I recommend joining, but no, I did not renew my membership. I have my own club to worry about now.
