It's the Annual ACE Day at the Boardwalk and I invite my nephews: Colin and Cedric, my neice Victoria and her boyfriend Vince and her daughter, Aaliyah to join in the festivities. We meet up with Jim for the event as well.
That morning I pick up Colin and Cedric in Fremont for the long drive over the hill to Santa Cruz. There we picked up Jim and later met up with Victoria in the parking lot across from the park.
We checked in with ACE and the started our 1hr ERT (Exclusive Ride Time) on the Giant Dipper. It was Colin and Cedric's first timeon the Giant Dipper... and I think it was a hit!
After ERT on the Dipper the park was open to the public, from there we rode numerous rides on the Boardwalk and stopped fro lunch. We left the park around 4pm for the drive back over the hill.
It was a fun day for all and we were blessed with nice weather too!
