This is a real shame. Although Camden has a long way to go, these folks were starting to get it going in the right direction. Wonder what this park sells for?

I think "these folks" are still running the park. Isn't Boylin III involved?

Yes, I believe that the son is still involved. Hopefully, these fine folks will keep it alive and continue further progress with the park.

I am from Huntington, and this is a bit late, but this is a shame because Camden Park has A LOT of promise. I think it could be the next Kennywood, they both started out as just picnic areas. There was a rumor for awhile that Paramount was going to take over, but I guess that idea is now defunct. The only problem is that there is absolutely no room to expand in nearly any direction. The only way you would have to expand is to either a.) move the park or b.) re-direct the current roads, tear the down the adjacent houses, etc. and work out from there. But in it's current location, it's nearly impossible. I am designing a theme park (my major is geography and I am going to go into coaster design as a complementary discipline) for the new resort I'm planning. It should be pretty good, I am talking with some investors and looking into options.
