Just found this and am posting it for a heads-up for anyone planning a Monday trip there.

Lord Gonchar's avatar OMG!!!

How does a park in financial trouble expect to make money by closing things and cutting hours!?

(just trying to balance the SF thing and put it into perspective :) )

They never should have been open on Mondays. Its the right move.

Many smaller parks are closed one or two days a week during the main season. Their attendance levels don't justify 7 day-a-week operation and this allows them to reduce operating expenses.

Years ago, even some larger parks such as Kennywood and Carowinds were on a 6 day-a-week schedule. As attendance at these parks grew, they switched to daily summer operation.

Some parks like Lakeside limit their weekday operation by opening daily but they limit most weekday operation to evenings.

Many smaller parks like this, including Waldameer in nearby Erie, are closed on Mondays, except for Holiday weekends.

Mondays are typically quiet days for parks, and also give the park a day to a more thorough maintenance assestment.

Next we'll be hearing that CLP is laying off all their costumed characters and cutting back on their parades. ;)

Was that supposed to be some sort of joke?

Parking is the same $2.00 for all but the FREE Northwest Lot.

Lord Gonchar's avatar Heh. Obviously, he's joking about the SF parking thing.

Hell, it's not even $15 to ride all day at Conneaut. Why on earth would their parking be that much?

On a side note, I wonder if CLP passholders will sue for 'breach of contract' ;) (reference here)

On Weekends, It's $17.95 plus tax for all-day Ride & Slide pass at CLP and $13.95 plus tax on weekdays (Wed-Fri)

But, for the first time in recent memory, CLP will be open on weekends in September. I'd say losing a couple of Mondays during August is worth a slightly longer season!

I bet all five of them are really PO'd! :)

Anybody else get the feeling that when a small park OR a large park chain starts cutting hours/days as policy, it is probably too late? The difference here is that I feel bad for CLP.

LOL! I almost worded my post differently to insinuate the same idea, but I already play the 'bad guy' too much.

CLP always manages to annouce they won't open each year, then finds a way to pull it out.

I must say, in defense of CLP, it really is a nice little park. Very old, with a lot of classic spirit to it. Blue Streak is a great classic ride.

I went there this summer. If the park had some funding, it could really be an amazing place.

When I read this I wasn't thinking "Why are they closing Monday's?" but rather "Why were they open on Monday's?"

Until I read the article, I thought were closed on mondays like the last several years.

Not much is open around Meadville/Conneaut on mondays.
