Hello all!
I am just asking for everyone to vote for this so that the Blue Streak at Conneaut Lake Park can win 50,000.00 towards the current rebuild.
This small park is near and dear to my family and I grew up going there and riding the gravity powered Devils Den dark ride (only 1 of 2 in existence left!)
This park has been in debt and financially strapped for a few years, but last year reopened and the new leasees are working so hard to get it back to glory!

Please pass this along and take a minute and vote! I'd appreciate it!

Thanks!

Thank you Chuck!
The owners also purchased a defunct parks dark ride (Erieview Park at Geneva on the Lake) The Fright Zone and plan on installing it once finances become available to do so! I love small parks!
And TWO dark rides (classic ones at that) are super!

Knoebel's is another great one. Free parking, no admission charge, no fence around the entire park. They also SAVE roller coasters (the phoenix) and the Haunted House dark ride there is one of the all time greats. Hopefully, you'll get more votes and support on your quest to save the coaster. Hopefully, ACE will also come up with something (like the leap the dips project) and help save it also. continued success and good luck.

All done, I was once a member of ACE and love roller coasters. Good luck, I hope they get the grant.

Thank you! This is so great!
It's working, as yesterday it was 70th and now today it's 36th!
We have until July 31st and I believe you can vote once a day.
I would love to make it to Knoebels someday soon!

Thanks!
Kirk

knoebel's is a MUST see. get here someday. out in the middle of nowhere, but that's the charm. near bloomsburg, pa. the bloomsburg fair is great too. end of september for a week. they just about close the whole town and the college for it. that's how BIG it is! now, let's rebuild this coaster!
