The American Amusement Machine Association (AAMA) is an international non-profit trade organization representing the manufacturers, distributors, suppliers, professional service organizations and location owner/operators of the coin-operated amusement industry. AAMA was founded in 1981 by a small group of amusement coin-operated machine manufacturers concerned with the future of their industry. A Board of Directors, selected by its members, governs the AAMA. Committees work with the Association staff to develop programs to promote and protect the industry. Members donate their time, effort, and expertise on a voluntary basis.
AAMA serves its membership through legislative efforts, promotional arenas, foreign business development, and much more. It is the AAMA’s job to serve as the voice for these segments of the coin-operated and out-of-home entertainment amusement machine industry.
Founded in 1978, American Coaster Enthusiasts (ACE) is a non-profit organization of more than 5,500 members from 16 countries.
ACE is the world’s largest ride enthusiast organization. Among its members are the most educated, dedicated, and passionate amusement park guests. ACE’s activities are extensive and include award-winning publications, action-packed events, and exhaustive preservation efforts. ACE is highly visible in the mainstream media. Local television stations and newspapers often consider ACE events in their area to be major news items. ACE members are frequently on hand for the debut of major new roller coasters at amusement and theme parks. In addition, numerous shows made for television networks such as The Discovery Channel have prominently featured ACE. Ultimately, ACE’s mission is to promote and enjoy roller coasters everywhere, regardless of type or size.
