When we began building The Raven back in the fall of 1994, we came to know all sorts of coaster- and park-enthusiast clubs.

First, we heard from the American Coaster Enthusiasts (ACE). And then there was the National Amusement Park Historical Association (NAPHA). And even regional groups such as the Great Ohio Coaster Club (GOCC), the Western New York Coaster Club (WNYCC) and the Mid-Atlantic Coaster Club (MACC). And that’s just a handful of the domestic clubs.

Overseas, there’s the Roller Coaster Club of Great Britain (RCCGB) and the European Coaster Club (ECC).

And now we’re learning about DAFE.


At first I pronounced it as spelled, “dafe.”

But I’ve been enlightened.

The Darkride and Funhouse Enthusiasts pronounce their club’s acronym “daffy.”


These are folks who are drooling over the thought of a new “dark ride” being produced in our Thanksgiving section. We’ll update them along with everyone else here on the HoliBlog as decisions are made regarding this interactive turkey-chase ride.

Here’s DAFE’s lighthearted slogan: We keep our members in the dark!
