Improvements at Historic Amusement Park

Several major improvement projects are underway at Conneaut Lake Park, as employees prepare for the park's traditional Memorial Day weekend opening. Long term debt remains a big problem. But still, the park is moving forward. A new ride operator is on board. And an artisan mall and games are planned for the old Midway. Plus a lot of improvements are underway, including the construction of 70 new boat docks with more on the drawing board. And major renovations are underway at the Dockside building next to the Beach Club. Perhaps most importantly, for a second straight year, crews are continuing to restore the Blue Streak roller coaster. It reopened last year after workers rebuild 350 feet of track and rail. This spring another segment is being restored.
