1930s: Park is nearly closed for development but is saved by the Depression. 1994: Park is slated to be replaced by a FEC (and the Blue Streak demolished). All of the rides are AUCTIONED OFF, but a few specific people buy most of them and the land. 1995: Park doesn't open. 2006-7: Park doesn't open. 2008: Massive fire destroys ballroom and much maintenance infrastructure. 2013: Fire destroys Beach Club. 2014: A planned sheriff's sale is put off when the park files for bankruptcy. A recovery plan is developed. 2020: Park doesn't open, hopefully for good reason.
This is just another part of the story. They will get through this.
I'm sure other small parks have gone through major challenges somewhat like Conneaut Lake, but being close to Conneaut Lake I don't know how they continue to survive, they're the little park that keeps chugging along. I hope they survive this just like they've survived all the challenges that have already faced them.
