Conneaut Lake's Blue Streak

I thought it would be nice to feature a video of the ride that is the focus of the fundraiser event being held at Conneaut Lake Park September 19th. See our previous post about the event for more details, but proceeds are going toward getting the Blue Streak coaster back into operation. (hence the above video of it in operation)

The traditional wooden coaster was designed by Eddie Vettel and opened in 1938. The ride stands 78 ft. tall and has a track length of 2,900 ft. After just seeing it up close on our recent trip I would love to see it operate again!
