What a shame to lose such a historic building. This is the last thing this park needed.
The infastructure of this park is taking a beating, Reguardless if they get funds to open, Repairs and replacements are a whole new ball of wax.

You have disturbed the forbidden temple, now-you-will-pay!!!
Park General Manager George Deshner said the maintenance area contained the motors and other components for most of the park’s rides. They were lost in the fire.
The building was not insured, Deshner said.
Another sad episode in the saga of CLP. :( I hate to say it, but it looks like Camp might be right.

Whats burned is all the way to the gift shop, The Skeeball building was damaged beyond repair. www.amusementtoday.com has some amazing pictures. Amazingly sad.
IMHO the only way to get the park going ever again would be to sell off remaining rides, Build a full scale waterpark and then pay off the debt and expand. While people like the place, It just isn't a draw.
Nonethless, I would be remiss if I didn't take this opportunity to lighten the mood a little by mentioning the whole meth-lab central concept, and how that might tie in to a fire at 3:30am...
In any case, I'll always have Grandma... :)
That's just sad. :( This is the LAST thing the park needed.
What is it with parks' ballrooms catching on fire? It seems to have been a slow trend over the years. :(

This looks like another bad management decision by the park owners, who in their right mind wouldn't insure a building that housed most of the equipment for the park. It's not if you can afford the insurance but, if you can afford not to have the insurance. It is obvious that this park can't afford not to have insurance and this event will probably be the nail in the parks coffin...
If you have $0 in your pocket and no one will loan you money because of your inability to pay down current debt, then it really isn't a 'decision' at all.
