Two brothers who grew up in Gloria Glens want to bring back music to the long-abandoned Chippewa Lake Amusement Park. Flying Cages, a company formed by brothers Scott and Brian Jones, sent out a news release Monday saying it was seeking investors to build an 8,000-seat outdoor concert venue at the site of the park, whose stage once hosted pop music icons Creedence Clearwater Revival, Neil Diamond, Paul Revere & the Raiders, Alice Cooper and Ohio’s Michael Stanley.

The only thing more annoying than a fanboy is an anti-fanboy.
The best example of this is Red Rocks Amphitheatre. No doubt one of the most beautiful venues in the country, but it only seats just over 9,000 people. They can still pack the place with bands like OAR, Umphery's McGee, etc..
Don't forget ICP...
Another fine example of money that these guys in Chippewa aren't going to want to spend. I'm sure it's not cheap getting them, either.
However, being on the grounds of an abandoned/half gutted amusement park (that was the set/subject of a horror film with a dark carnival/clown theme), that might be right up their alley. :)
I watched maybe 10 minutes of that movie. (the one set at Chippewa) It was downright painful to watch. Wanted to give it a chance, I really did, because the haunted amusement park idea was intriguing to me. Aside from "Zombieland" I'm having a tough time thinking of another horror movie with amusement park sets.
(Okay, perhaps Kristin Stewart was a horror in that Kennywood movie, but that hardly counts.)
Man, I loved that movie. It was pure cheese, and the main actress was running around in a tight tank top and yoga pants. You gotta take those things for what they are, and don't expect a Hollywood blockbuster. :)

I didn't click RCMAC's link, so if this is redundant, my apologies...
Carnival Of Souls
Final Destination 3
I know there's others that aren't coming to me now...
The amusement park rises bold and stark..kids are huddled on the beach in a mist
Oh Jeez.... How could I have forgotten Final Dest 3? Duh!
In actuality though, I was referring more to a film where an actual conflict took place in a park. Either a killer was stalking people, the park was haunted, etc. In FD3, there was no conflict, just people getting killed due to an unfortunate accident.
Deadwood park was also partially filmed at Chippewa lake park. Close encounters of the fourth kind was filmed at Cedar point.
