Without knowing the failure message, try adding the ".app" and using  
forward slashes in the right places so that it's actually a valid path:

/Applications/Aquamacs\ Emacs.app/Contents/MacOS/Aquamacs\ Emacs

Alternatively, you could use "emacsclient"

/Applications/Aquamacs\ Emacs.app/Contents/MacOS/bin/emacsclient

This requires Aquamacs to run and (server-start) in your  
Preferences.el (or a manual M-x server-start).

The third possibility lies in the "aquamacs" command line tool that  
Aquamacs 1.6 can install (Tools menu).  Using this may give you the  
best results, or it may not work at all!
