The 4th annual Blue Streak Challenge was held Monday at Conneaut Lake Park. The event raised over $5,000 to help with maintenance costs for the Blue Streak coaster. 301 laps were completed during the 12-hour event.

It's good to see that all the work on the Blue Streak was finished in time for the marathon... Next year, I'm on it.. ;)

Its always nice to hear good things about Conneaut. I'd say that things are starting to look up for the park.

The event was great! Everyone had a wonderful time and we got to meet a lot of new people. If you are ever near the area when this is going on stop by and grab a few rides!

My thanks go out to everyone who helped put this on and bring awareness of this great park. I hope that we all can continue to help out the park in the future!

I got in 278/300 circuits. More importantly, I met some great people, and helped keep this great coaster up and running for hopefully a long time to come.

I believe I only missed about ten times. It was alot harder than I thought and since I haven't been on the coaster in more than 10 years, I didn't know what to exspect. My entire body was sore afterwards. It was fun though. The guy that was sitting in front of me(i think his name was eric but i can't remember), he didn't miss one lap. Can't wait til next years run. Bye all!
