Progress Continues at Conneaut Lake Park

In the wake of what park officials hailed as a successful grand reopening weekend, Conneaut Lake Park continues its slow but steady march back to full operation. Ken from Ride Operations has informed us that the following rides are now open:

  • Sky Diver (new)
  • Tilt-A-Whirl
  • Paratrooper
  • Flying Skooters
  • Tumble Bug
  • Bumper Cars
  • Carousel
  • The Devils Den
  • The Witches Stew
  • Trabant
  • All rides in Kiddieland, including the Little Dipper
Ken also mentioned that the Log Cabin gift shop (which features an arcade) has reopened as well, and that the Rollo Planes, Round Up, and train are expected to open soon. Conneaut Lake hopes to have its water park back in operation by July 4, which would surely give the park an extra boost over the holiday weekend. Officials estimate that park attendance hit 25,000 over Memorial Day weekend, so let's hope they achieve equally high numbers over the 4th of July!

But if you don't feel like waiting that long to visit, Conneaut Lake Park is offering some additional incentives over the next couple weeks. The park has announced a "$5 Fridays" promotion which will allow you to purchase an unlimited rides wristband, valid from 4-10pm, for just $5 plus tax ($5.50 total) on June 12 and 19. Parking will also be free on Fridays. This is a big savings, so be sure to drop in and take advantage of this special offer if you can! More information is available on the park's web site.
