Possible Americana (LeSordsville Lake) Info

Wednesday, April 10, 2002 11:50 PM

Gazzo posted this information on URC, I hope it is true but have no proof other than the Zipper which I have seen personally and that there is lots of work going on in the park

New attractions will include:

Caterpiller (canopied himalaya, fairly rare)
Fun House (50 trick version)
Swinging Ship
Tea Cups
Orbiter
Zipper
Bumble Bees
A slightly reprofiled Screechin' Eagle, to fix first drop neck whipping
new restaurants, fry stand
later hours
2.95 gen adm, plus pay per ride or ride pass (under 15 bucks, evening discount)
new plants, flags (30 or so on the Eagle alone)
8 car operation on Serpent wild mouse

looks like great effort is going into this salvage....

It would also be great if the later hours is true, It's been a long time since I have ridden Eagle at night :)

Interesting list. I hope it's true. I guess the rumored removal of the Serpent is false.

I wonder where they're getting the caterpillar.

I'll bet the caterpillar is the SDC Himalaya that I saw at the Fairfield County Fair a couple of years ago in Lancaster, OH. Three guesses as to what carnival company serviced that fair...hint: their winter quarters were less than a mile from the fairgrounds.

Now that someone else has said it, I can confirm that I heard more or less the same story through a little research project yesterday.

That said Lesourdsville Lake is certainly finding a niche in the local area amusement scene:

PKI - Big corporate theme park, big multi million dollar attractions. Big price tag to visit.

Coney Island - Swim and picninc park that just so happens to offer rides.

Strickers Grove - Private Group Outing Park

Lsourdsville Lake - Classic traditional style park with classic amusement park rides, with family friendly prices.

So the Caterpillar would resemble the one found at Myrtle Beach Pavilion, right? Not the standard one like Idlewild has?

Brad, having not seen the one at Myrtle Beach, (nor, for that matter, the actual one for Lesourdsville Lake...I'm only speculating) I can only say, "probably." :)

Im thinking the Catapillar is the type found at Camden park.

Chuck who dose notice though that the E-mail says Music Express.
