Last Ride On The Blue Streak

Posted by LOTGK on March 3, 2008

last ride on blue streak

The Blue Streak Roller Coaster

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)

    Hey, not that I don’t love a good rollercoaster story– but I have a request…

    please post a blue plate special from Vegas (I love your food photos/captions)!

    BTW, I’m pretty sure the Blue Streak is up and running at King’s Island in Cin City… (err, Cinci).

    The guy in the blue shirt, he looks dead. Someone should have checked him after he rode it 50 times. The reason is cause he’s dead.

    Hwy- I think I’ve seen the other guy at Conneaut before…Isn’t he the guy who rides all summer long? I think he tells everyone who asks and used to keep track of how many times he’d ridden.

    12,438…12,439… 12,440.

    God, I miss it already.

  6. Never been on the blue streak unless when it was when I was a baby.

    I have been looking at a lot of stuff from Kennywood Park lately and found out the other night why I was suddenly almost compelled to collect items that LOOKED like Noah’s Ark starting a few years ago. I had totally forgotten about the Noah’s Ark ride there.

    I love the old style amusement parks & loved Kennywood Park. Sorry your park may be gone.

    ( this to blogmaster…drop me an email sometime with your email address. my mail function on my Imac wont work so i have to send email with yahoo or gmail . I have some questions to ask of you )
