East Meets ACE, 日本, 土曜日, 22. 9月 2018

East Meets ACE is American Coaster Enthusiasts' 2018 international trip to Japan and South Korea. ACE is planning a one and a half week tour of Japan with an optional three-day add-on trip to South Korea. The TENTATIVE dates for the trip are Saturday, September 22 to Saturday, October 6, 2018, with the Japan portion ending Wednesday, October 3, followed by the add-on to South Korea. Initial check-in is expected to the first Saturday evening (September 22).

While trip planners are excited about the trip and wish to share information with prospective travelers as soon as possible so that members can start planning, please note that dates and itineraries are still TENTATIVE. It is highly recommended that prospective travelers do not make any travel arrangements or purchase any airline tickets until the event flier is released and/or it is announced here that dates and information are confirmed. Trip details are subject to change until that time. (Most airlines won't even allow you to book flights until a year in advance!)

For those joining an ACE international trip for the first time – WELCOME! You picked a good one!

The trip package will include transportation via motor coach or train from the host hotels to all of the host parks, admission to the parks and hotel accommodations. Daily breakfasts at the hotels and some meals at parks also may be provided. Other meals are the responsibility of individual attendees. Airfare to and from Asia is the responsibility of individual attendees. However, for those attending the full two weeks including the add-on to South Korea, one-way airfare between Japan and South Korea will be included in the ACE trip registration price.

ACE international trips typically involve at least two payments. A deposit in early 2018 will be required when signing up for the trip, followed by a second payment several months later. The preliminary estimated cost of the (ACE portion of) trip is $3,500 per person based on double occupancy for the full two weeks or $2,500 for the Japan-only portion (not including the South Korea add-on). Travelers requiring a single room are expected to pay an additional supplement of $500 to $700. These are our trip planners' best estimates at this time. A better estimate for the trip cost will be provided when the event flier is released, but the specific amount of the final payment may not be known at the time of trip registration, as there may be fluctuations in the currency exchange rate and some prices are estimates until the final contracts are signed.

ACE’s international trips have often become memories of a lifetime for attendees in years past. The 2018 trip will be ACE's first to Japan in 30 years. Japan has long been one of the leaders in roller coaster thrills and amusement parks, so there will be much to see and do. The trip will include visits to Tokyo Disneyland and DisneySea, Fuji-Q Highlands, Nagashima Spa Land, Universal Studios Japan, Tokyo Dome City, Tobu Zoo, Tokyo Joypolis, Yomuiriland and other parks in the Tokyo, Nagoya and Osaka areas. When possible, the larger, more popular parks are being planned for weekday visits to minimize the crowds.

The optional add-on will be ACE's first ever visit to South Korea, and will include stops at the beautifully-themed Lotte World with its unique Atlantis Adventure coaster and Everland with its T-Express wooden coaster, which routinely ranks as one of top woodies in the world.

The host hotels and specific parks to be visited will be announced at a later date. Trip planners are trying to use only two or three hotels in Japan so that hotel check-ins and check-outs are minimized.

Please feel free to use this event page to ask questions and share your travel plans. We'll provide answers as best we can, but bear in mind that many questions may not be able to be answered just yet! Once they are known, we'll be posting trip updates including a complete list of parks and coasters we will visit. Likewise, a link to the event flier will be posted here once it's available and a link to sign up and pay a deposit will be provided in the "tickets" section once it the registration process is open and active. Please subscribe to this event page by indicating "Going" or "Interested" to receive notifications when new information is posted.
