Conneaut Lake Park Fire

Enthusiast coaster & amusement park chatter about whatever. If it's not about coasters & parks, it'll go to the garbage file. Keep it on-topic and flame-retardant, please.

Absolutely heart breaking.

I really enjoyed myself when I was at the beach club in 2010 during Coaster Con.

I never been there myself, but it is still, like you said, heart breaking

I hope the park can pick up its feet, I've been reading that the park has been really struggling, which is a shame.

Wait... didn't they JUST have a huge clean&refurbish party last week with hoards of volunteers painting and cleaning and spiffing things up?

What the hell? I think this park is cursed or something, they just can't catch a break.

Yeah I think they did, they are making a tv series about the refurbishment of the park.

And no they cant seem to have a break, a couple of years ago they had a fire in the kiddy park; and with financial troubles they are not doing any better.

Apparently there were people volunteering today. A friend of mine was one of the guys volunteering yesterday, and he said Blue Streak got a new sign and they continued painting.

I feel terrible for everyone involved. Thank goodness there were no injuries.
