Conneaut's Blue Streak Planned Opening: Summer 2010

The efforts to get the Blue Streak wooden roller coaster at Conneaut Lake Park operating again seem to be paying off - the park now says that the ride should open this summer. Though no date can be set, contractors are working on the ride and hope to have it operating as soon as six weeks from now.

The fundraising efforts recently had a nice windfall when the Wizards benefit basketball game brought in over $3,500 for the ride's restoration. Park owners hope that a successful summer will help bring in more funds to keep the efforts going. If you have the chance to stop by and visit this classic park this year - I highly suggest it!
