Conneaut Lake gets approval to open in the spring

Posted Thursday, January 13, 2005 11:24 AM | Contributed by SpecialEd

Conneaut Lake Park can open this spring as long as its board of trustees doesn’t borrow money or sell or lease property without first getting approval from the Crawford County Court of Common Pleas. That was a ruling made Wednesday by Judge Anthony Vardaro. He issued the ruling in response to a plan for the park he required its board to file in December.

1EyedJack's avatar This is GREAT news, for an AWESOME park. I urge everyone to visit this park at least once this summer to help keep it going. Visiting this park is like taking a trip back in time. I cant wait to go back.

rollergator's avatar Wish the park was open around PPP time, sure would be *convenient* for those of us who don't live in/around PA...

I will be trying HARD to get there this year...shame that an uncertain future is such a motivating factor, but at least it IS motivating...

Good News indeed, but it won't last for long if people don't spend any money! Everyone should plan to Eat there, Play the games, ride alot of rides, and buy souvenirs too!

One of the sad realities about parks like Conneaut is that the pricing structure is about the only thing they can use to draw people in. But by having more reasonable prices than six flags or other parks, they also have lower profit from the things they sell, tickets, souvenirs and etc.

So I say go, but also remember to drop a few bucks!if you don't see any souvenirs you like, buy extra tickets for souvenirs.......

Great news. A little known fact (for some reason or another) is that the park actually has a video/DVD for sell with all profits going to the park. Just stop by the park office and ask for it. I don't know why they don't just sell them in the gift shop.

Also, in a few months one of those Arcadia Images series book is coming out with a book on Conneaut Lake. Details: click here.*** This post was edited by carrouseler 1/13/2005 3:34:15 PM ***

This is great news! I was hoping to hear that it would open this year so I'd have a chance to go there, and it's good to find out I can!
