This thread is simple! Rather than having a million little threads about everything that goes on at Conneaut Lake Park, this thread is designed to consolidate it all into one user-friendly thread. Feel free to use it to post updates, trip reports, questions, comments, and of course, general discussion. For pictures and videos of the park as well as past updates, see TPR's Park Index Page.
LOL Ted: in ref to Gumwall, that's become a classic.
I should be able to make the may 1st clean up date. I would've loved to be there for bluestreak paint job a few years ago. that'd been fun.
Conneaut's only like an hour from me, but i'd probibly swing over aft work that sat and stay at one of the hotels.
Well, hmm....I believe Funderwoods in Lodi, CA is community owned and that place is probably the saddest park I've ever seen.
I really like the Blue Streak and Conneaut Lake park in general is OK, but I haven't seen too many community owned/operated parks that have ended up well.
I'm just kinda worried it'll get to the point where the park is technically open but rides are sitting around in various states of repair, waiting for "parts" to arrive. It sucks when you go to a park and just feel all depressed about the place.
Williams Grove OTOH looks as if it's moments away from disaster but that park rocks.

Hopefully this park can last at least until I hit the Powerball. At that point I have all intentions of purchasing it and assuming it's 2 million dollar debt. First order on the agenda is to get the Tumble Bug working, retrack the Blue Streak, speed up the skooter, and put those NADs back where they belong.
