Mission: Amusement; Conneaut Lake

I heard about this Travel Channel show a little while ago but kept forgetting to check times for it. Looks like it is a Bar Rescue kind of show dealing with old or poorly run amusement parks. Has anyone else watched this or heard about it? I think if done properly, it could really get people curious about some old parks and maybe do a world of good. Thoughts?

Just caught a bit of it.

Man, Conneaut is in bad shape.

It was sad to see, as I've never been there and could see the potential, but by the end of the program, I was hopeful for CLP's future.

I get angry with the way the media misrepresents Charmland. Sure, Lighty had a drug problem when he was hanging out with Charlie Sheen, but he checked himself into Celebrity Rehab and got cleaned up. They never tell that side of the story.

I visited Conneaut Lake Park in 2010; it was part of ACE's Coaster Con. I haven't seen this show.

My take away from my visit to the park was: it's a lost cause. There's just too much wrong, too much outdated, to be corrected. I wasn't happy about reaching that conclusion.

Or maybe I'm bitter because our windows at the Hotel Conneaut were nailed shut, and there was no air conditioning.

I watched it and the park is a mess, but they did alot in the short time they were there, but the park is so far in debt theres no hope for it.
