The water is just what is splashing over the edge of the pool for the slides. It is not there when the slides are closed.

Damn, I can't say I'm not a little impressed.

I made my first ever visit to the park on June 30th on my way from Pittsburgh to Waldameer. I mainly just wanted to ride Blue Streak a couple of times and had done no real research into what was happening with the park. The crowds definitely surprised me and the park was a lot nicer than I was expecting. As someone else said, barring a major new attraction, I don't know that I'd go back but it was nice to see this old park getting some love (and crowds).

*I rode Blue Streak twice, once in the front and once in the back (I think I pissed off a local who wanted the back also). I actually liked the ride in the front but the back was pretty brutal.

^If you do get back to the park, make sure you get 2nd to back on Blue Streak. It's all the airtime of the very back, but much less bumpy.

Good to hear you had fun!

So, obviously a good sign that any new ride is being added. I think this will be a good fit if it goes anywhere near the lake.

Yeah. This park is making me eat a bit of crow. :lol:

Personally I’m okay with that.

I believe it is going where the Round Up was facing the lake.

The Blue Streak also got new wheels in the past few weeks. The park got a grant from the Western PA ACE for these wheels.

I agree-usually I'm a "front seat guy",but I found Blue Streak's last car to be better than the first.
And as far as the ferris wheel goes,no matter where they put it,I just hope it has a working light package!
