I just got off the phone with GR at LeSourdsville. The park will be OPEN (at 5pm) and the Eagle will by FLYING.
In fact they are staying open an EXTRA HOUR till 11pm tonight.
I can't recall the last time I was in Americana late enough to see the all the lighting.

""To be the man, WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!, You got to beat the man""!!!
Hey, it's 5pm!!!
Congrats to LeSourdsville, it's not every day a park is brought back from the dead. Here's to a season of support to keep it that way -- and to prove to other parks on shaky ground that you can bounce back!
Great! I can't wait to go now!
Good Times!! Good Times!!
everything's better with a banjo
Iwent ro the park tonite and it was fun, a little cold, and disappointing sincethe Eagle was closed!! So i rode the SERPENT like 3-4 times!!

Yes the Eagle wasn't open. Computer malfunction.
However, just to be able to ride what we were able to ride and do what we were able to do. It's not everyday a park is brought back from the grave. The highlights:
What was open: Carousel, Serpent, Flying Skooters, Skyride, Zipper, Muisk Express, Whip, Speedway, Giant Slide, Calypso, Tip Top, Infernal Combustion, Tilt-a-Whirl, Showboat, Liberty Train, Little Dipper and I think all the kiddies in kids town except for the Skyfighters.
The 6 closed rides: Screechin Eagle, Log Flume, Scrambler, Rock-O-Plane, kids ride in Tombstone Teritory, Round Up. (we won't count the Pirate Ship as it hasn't been put together yet)
For those keeping score: Fascination is still there!
New ride placements: Zipper (to left of Serpent), Pirate Ship (Next to Flying Skooters), Musik Express (former Jolly Rogers kids play structure site), Tip Top (where the Tilt-A-Whirl used to be), Fun house (Between slide and Calypso), The Tilt moved where the Eli Wheel used to be.
The mini golf was closed but is getting a total restoration: new carpets, and the sidewals painted Putt-Putt orange. The Tilt got a whole new purple/green color scheme. The Musik Express is run in INSANE mode.
It will be a Pepsi park, if that kind of thing matters to you.
