It's definitely the sketchiest Tumble Bug I've ever ridden.*

I'm able to have more fun at Conneaut Lake than at most large corporate parks. Very happy to see they are cleaning it up, and new people are in the fold. The Blue Streak is one of the last remaining coasters in the world where you can get true air time - the kind where your butt actually leaves the seat more than an inch.

I've always seen the potential in Conneaut Lake, let's hope it gets there and ensures a bright future. With a little more TLC and people that care (and money!), it could be like a smaller version of Knoebels.

Does Jeff Johnson count this donkey as a credit?

Glad to see the Tumblebug getting some love. Had a blast on it last summer. The one at Kennywood doesn't come close.

I love donkeys more than me.

If I wanted to stop at this park after leaving Waldameer on my way to kennywood how far is it out of the way?
After riding Lightning Run I can not understand why parks are not lining up to buy some Hyper GTX models. That little ride rocks

Not much at all... Maybe 15-20 minutes off of I-79.

I'll drink donkey urine before I'll drink a Pepsi.

I'm kinda on the fence about visiting this place. Can you buy a ticket just to Blue Streak? Visiting Kennywood and Waldameer on this trip, so is there anything else really worthwhile that I can't get at one of those two parks?

They're not usually open every day of the week but they are open all of next week because of the holiday. I may have to take a long lunch and take a few laps on Blue Streak it's been a long time since I've made it to Conneaut Lake Park for anything other then Halloween.
