Last Ride On The Blue Streak
Posted by LOTGK on March 3, 2008
Sadly, the Blue Streak coaster along with the entire Conneaut lake Park is in peril of being closed for good due to some unfortunate luck in late 2007 and early 2008.
In 2007, the park could not open due to insurance issues and some disputes over ownership. However, the park officials were hopeful that the park would be open in 2008.
Then a mysterious fire destroyed part of the midway buildings and the dance hall. More bad luck however as several of the parks rides were stored in the dance hall.
With the amusement park season quickly approaching, Conneaut and the Blue Streak again lay dormant.
The above picture is of my son in the back car, (The one with his tongue hanging out) on the Blue Streak, back car as it just came into the station finishing the ride.
Little did he realize that perhaps it was his last ride on the Blue Streak.
PS: The guy in the next car was an avid rider of the Blue streak. My son and I rode the coaster about a dozen times that day, but this guy rode it from the time the park opened to the time the park closed. He only stopped for bathroom breaks and food. (We know this for we weren’t stalking him, we asked him)
LURKING, SIGH, ON THE GRASSY KNOLL
