Lesourdsville Lake attendance promising in opening weeks

Posted Tuesday, June 18, 2002 4:43 AM | Contributed by Sheik al Squeak

Families in the market for traditional outdoor fun this past weekend seemed to find just the ticket at LeSourdsville Lake Amusement Park. Promotional pricing continued to attract families and young singles to the park to see what a new owner and management team have in mind for the Butler County site.

It's great that the word has gotten out about the park. I have recieved word that the Screechin Eagle is now also running well. It's a little slow and not up to the park on the front half (probably because of the new tracking and little grease) but the back half is giving the extreme air it always has :) I hope this park can build up and continue to do well.

john peck's avatar Yeah, Eagle did feel a little on the "slow" side, but it should be up to it's old self in a few weeks.

According to some employees, several guests had been complaining about the rides being $1 each. A few thought $1 would get you on all of them. I wonder where they got that information from.

I think it would be neat if LL could add more land, and really do some great things with the park, but I imagine it is hard with the river right there. Does anyone know how much land is at the park that is yet to be developed?

They could buy the old Fantasy Farm next door. I thought Couch did that already but I have heard different.

I live 7 miles from LeSourdsville Lake. $1 dollar rides on Screechin' Eagle rocks. If you get a chance to stop by and ride it, do it.

As an employee of the park and fellow coaster enthusiast, I am thrilled to see LL back on its feet. The attendance at the park over the past two weeks has been incredible, and I, along with my fellow park associates and managers, anticipate a good turnout for weeks to come. If any of you visit the park and have any questions or suggestions, let me know and i will try to answer them as well as i can and try to get your ideas through so you can see them in action. See you at the Lake!

L. Kris Allen -

It sounds like you live about as far from the park as I do. I live between West Chester and Fairfield.

JBoz -

Do you have any idea exactly how far they are wanting to go with the park? For example, any new rides in the future? New coasters? The return of previous rides? Expansions plans? I haven't been yet, so I really wouldn't know what to suggest, but it is nothing for me to leave work and pop up there for a few hours in the afternoon to check it out. I think more than anything, I would be interested in having the park be a quality alternative to PKI. Meaning, an assortment of good quality fun rides, good food, perhaps a couple of shows. Just some things that would make me feel like I really was in an amusement park, and not just at a festival that has a roller coaster. Another major coaster would draw me away from PKI - perhaps a suspended coaster. Wouldn't have to be anything special, wouldn't need to have any inversions. But I do know there are issues with land and cost.
