I have been a member of ACE for over 10 years. Prior to the advent of the Internet and the home PC ACE was really top of the line. Nowadays,the info is out-of-date by the time you actually get the newsletters and magazines BUT it IS nice to have pics that you can look at anytime without having to turn on the PC. They do have some great pics!!! I will always belong for this factor alone. And there are some benefits (First ride of the day on The Beast and half price admission, discounts on rental cars etc . . .) But it's like any "enthusiast" club
, the fun is just knowing that there are other people who belong who "GET" the whole theme-park-experience and love rides as much as I do.
