According to the park's blog, the Yo-Yo is being removed and scrapped. The Round Up is being relocated there to free up more space for concerts/car cruises, etc. There are pictures showing the ride removal.
The sad thing about it is CLP spent money to have the major parts of the ride x-rayed as part of the ride inspection.

I just went to the site to check some things out. I found it interesting under the Rollo-Plane ride there are two pictures. The first one is probably the CLP Rollo-Plane, the second one has got to be from Knoebels. If I'm not cracking up isn't that the High Speed Thrill Coaster and the mountain in the background?

LOL, Did they have to get Knoebels permission to use that picture? But then again six flags sites always have pictures of rides on their site that really aren't at that park, but its the same company.
Funny thing is Knoebels doesn't even have a picture of Satellite on THEIR site. That and Cosmotron Ive always wondered why. *** Edited 4/12/2006 5:13:02 PM UTC by P18***

Well, Cosmotron is an indoor Himalaya ride. Not much to see but a bare Himalaya track I guess. I'm not sure why there are no Satelite pictures though.

How can CLP patrons miss a ride that hasn't operated in at least five years?
Seriously, while it's a tragedy to lose any ride, especially a good ride like a Yo-Yo, for a park like Conneaut, there is something to be said for getting rid of what has become nothing more than a hunk of rotting steel. CLP getting rid of the Yo-Yo is not entirely unlike Camden Park getting rid of the Thunderbolt Express.

It's a shame that they've lost two rides in two years. However Most could consider the Tumble Bug as new as it hasn't run in years, The trains been out for a year and a half. I didn't like the old Round up location and think it will be better suited where the Yo-Yo was. I think that should be like Reserved parking for classic cars and Bikes down there.
This park if it could just get a few events together per summer could turn the corner. It really is a enjoyable place to spend half a day or more if the beach is open. I still think they ought to charge a buck for the Beach or something.
CLP is one of my favorites. SUre it isn't HW or IB or even Waldammer but it is relaxing and enjoyable.
Chuck, who says the other ride was the Scrambler that was lost in the roof collapse.

Well another subtraction from the dwindling ride count at a suffering park. Yes there are few of these left, but this one was a pile of junk. The ride really wasn't that exciting.
Just another nail in the coffin for this suffering park.

Yeah, the Scrambler lost a lot with the roof caving in. That ride was awesome indoors with strobes and loud music.
They need to have concerts again, stock up some cash, and buy some rides.

AJ, if you know how to ride a Yo-Yo, You'd call it anything but boring. Terrifying maybe but not boring.

Maybe I'm the only one, but what does CLP stand for?

It's Conneaut Lake Park in Pennsylvania.
