^I'm sure it was way back in the roaring 20's.

I'm just saying that Lakemont park needs to either get itself better with these changing times, or join the association of defunct parks.

Closing for the 2017 season is the best they can do without blowing through their $20 budget.

I think that's what they're trying to do. Keep in mind their location and typical visitors. They are trying to add new features that will generate revenue and keep a family feel. If anything I'd say these changes could help the build a more sustainable and profitable operation if all goes well.

If I were the one who was renovating the park here is what I'd do:

1) Demolish it in favor of a gentrified condo / townhome complex with a douchy name that ties into the former park like "The Residences at Lakemont"

2)After the handsome profit that came along with step one, I'd head over to Del Grossos with family and friends to celebrate and buy everyone pizza or something. Then I'd use the rest of the money to buy a boat, a winter house in Florida and a summer place at the Residences at Lakemont since that place is all the rage

Or you can just drive 1.5 hours to Knoebels and get equally as good pizza with far superior rides.

No knock against DelGrosso's since it is a nice park, but it's no Knoebels.
Top 5 Wood- Phoenix, Boulder Dash, Wildfire, Balder, Voyage
Top 5 Steel- Expedition GeForce, Iron Rattler, Fury 325, Twisted Colossus, Shambhala
Top 5 Parks- Europa Park, Cedar Point, Disneyland, Phantasialand, Knoebels

Cesari's pizza is ok, but it's no DelGrosso's.

I had a PA parks tour planned for sometime in the next few years, and was hoping to go to Lakemont to ride their Chance Skydiver (one of my bucket list flat rides). First Camden Park in WV loses their Skydiver, now Lakemont's might be gone? The Skydiver is becoming a rare ride indeed.

Was kinda hoping to do the Toboggan too.
