Conneaut Lake attempting without Blue Streak, booking bands

Posted Friday, May 18, 2007 9:31 AM | Contributed by Jeff

Managers of Conneaut Lake Park have gambled what little money they have by booking five bands and renting out all 120 rooms of the complex's hotel for Memorial Day weekend. Customers who have reserved rooms for what is being billed as "Do Wopp, Car Cruise Weekend" telephone the park each day to ask if it will be open by May 26, as advertised. George Deshner, Conneaut Lake Park's director of operations, tells them he hopes so. But, he said yesterday, he cannot offer any guarantees, given the park's shaky financial standing.

I'm impressed that they booked all the rooms. Special events could be the key to this park's future. They have a lot of infrastructure for that sort of thing between the hotel ballroom, Beach Club, Dreamland Ballroom, the outdoor stage, and Elizabeth's Dining Room.

They should open Camperland as well. That place gets packed on Memorial weekend. The last three years or so Camperland has been a sell-out.
