Putting to rest some ACE Classic Coaster Questions

Friday, April 20, 2001 12:34 PM
I e-mailed Matt Crowther, the person in charge of ACE Classic Coasters with some questions pertaining to ACE Classic Coasters.

What is the "official" rule for brakes on a classic coaster if there is one?

Brakes on the track have no bearing on Classic status.

Is there any age requirement for a classic coaster?

A coaster can be a classic even if it is brand new, as long as it meets the criteria.

Wasn't the original twister on the classic coaster list, so why isn't the new one on the ACE classic coaster list?

The original Twister was not a classic because the trains had seat dividers, the new one has ratcheting bars and dividers, both disqualifying factors.

I hope this answers some questions about classic coasters, and special thanks to Matt Crowther.

Here's the link to ACE's website and the listing of all the "classics"

So far I was on 13 of the current classics.

Isn't there something in the ACE charter prohibiting the club from ranking rides? While this isn't strictly ranking per se, it does seem to favor certain rides.

ACE says its mission is to preserve the classic wooden coaster and this rewards parks for keeping classic coasters.
