Blue Streak-what it lacks in paint, it makes up for in thrills. Now my favorite wooden coaster, rode this ride about 15 times. Front seat is really awesome and the first drop is awesome.
Devil's Den-Rode this once. Nice ride, except for the famous 'gum wall.'
Roll-o-Plane-saddens me that Kennywood took their's out. I love these rides. Rode this about 8 or 9 times.
Carousel-I have never seen a Carousel so well maintained as this one. I couldn't find a single burnt out bulb and the horses looked fresh and new.
Ultimate Trip-Don't like this ride for some reason but I don't.
Flyers/Scooters-Major disappointment plus the ride operator gave too long of a ride.
Train-very cool. I have never rode a train before with a cross-over.
Bumper Cars-very smooth and fast. My favorite bumper car ride anywhere.
The lady in the gift shop, who also is a volunteer helping the park raised money, said that the Tumble Bug is in need of $18-20,000 in repairs and the Toboggan needs $10-12,000 in electrical work.
The Musik Express, without its cars, was being worked on by the park yesterday. The center was running. The guy on Blue Streak told us that the ride recieved the part it needed that day and Musik Express, Yo-Yo, and Toboggan are expected to be in operation by the end of this month.
All the ride operators were nice, I didn't really expect that.
Rain was a factor throughout the day. On and off light and heavy showers. The cold was what bothered me a bit.
bathrooms are a definate item that needs improvement. Never been in bathrooms that had such a nasty smell and cobwebs.
We left the park around 7:40. It was a great experience and chance to visit Conneaut. I'd like to visit again later this year but if not, I'll wait 'til next.:)
You didn't miss much with the Musik Express being down. It's a pretty awful ride!
Did you take a walk along the boardwalk and visit Hotel Conneaut?
Oh, I forgot to mention I think the tunnel beginning on Blue Streak is the best I've seen on any coaster.
It was really windy when I rode the Scooters, but I'm just a beginner on getting them to snap.
