I tried two years ago but a day of heavy rain kept them closed and basically every park in the region...except Waldameer because they're awesome. I think I was one of like 10 people in the park all day and they apologized for closing early at 8 pm.

This is definitely on my radar when I make it out for Steel Curtain.

Oh that looks great!

Yeah, everyone going to Pittsburgh this year should be stopping by this place. It's $10 and about an hour. Completely worth it. Buy a hat in the gift shop. They turn it into Tilt a Whirl paint jobs.

Productive weekend working on the Bug. The foundations were pressure washed, the area under the deck was cleaned, the center was painted, and the green and yellow sweeps were painted.

This season's retracking was completed about a month ago. I believe all the track now is 2010 or newer from the top of the lift to the end of the turnaround.

Nice! That's good to hear... there were a couple years where Streak wasn't quite ready for opening day/weekend. With this year's trackwork plus the new wheels on the train, it should be running great! :b

Wow. The Tumble Bug looks fantastic. The colors really pop! The Ferris Wheel going up on the old Round Up site is a fantastic place for it. The views of the lake should be outstanding. I also follow The Devil's Den Facebook page and it looks like a lot of work went into that as well, including completely rebuilt and repainted cars.

In 2014, I was ready to write Conneaut's obituary. 5 years later, I am very pleased to eat my words and watch as Conneaut continues to improve. It still has a LONG way to go, but seeing ANY improvements is a huge step up from what we were seeing before!
