Blue Streak Conneaut Closes

Posted by LOTGK on February 17, 2008

blue streak roller coaster conneaut

The Blue Streak roller coaster located in Conneaut Lake Park has now officially been placed on the endangered species list.

The amusement park was closed in 2007 for lack of operating funds and insurance and just last week a fire broke out and damaged a portion of the midway and the dance hall. Several rides were being stored in the bottom floor of the dance hall almost assuring that the park will not open again.

Sadly, a fire was the downfall of Idora Park, (Another local amusement park) that destroyed the Wild Cat, Lost River, and part of the midway. It would seem that history is repeating itself.

    Interesting indeed. The third fire at Conneaut Lake Park in the past few year: (1) The Flynn House (2)The McClure House and now the Historic Dreamland ballroom. None of these structures had utilities in them. And all THREE FIRES remain as origin unknown.
    All 3 fires in strategic future development proposals. The smell of smoke is very strong, but nobody knows the source of the fires. The media is not interested in the story at all. The list of questions, motives and agendas are in place. Surely on the Grassy Knoll.

    It’s green again.
    Not the blue streak, which we all know is yellow in color, but the website, its green again.

    All of our nations roller coasters are being taken away. Our old amusement park heritage is becoming but a memory. Very sad. Did the Blue Streak get damages, or just the park itself?

    Gumby:
    George Washington green, or is that Ben Franklin green?

    Is that George Washington green or Ben Franklin green? Or the green of envy of a “public trust”

    I was sort of hoping for GUMBY green Dammitt.

    it is truely sad to see this great ride go. it will be missed and when someone mentions the blue streak from now on a little tear will fall from everyone at the grassy knoll

    But, but, but…

    The Blue Streak did not burn down! (yet) I seen it! Yesterday! With my own eyes! It’s still standing… you know?

    Yes, I know the coaster is still there but this is so Deja Vu as this is what happened to Idora Park back in 1984. A fire destroyed part of the midway and several key rides and the park was doomed.

    Sounds a lot like Conneaut.
    And Chippawa Lake park.
