The Blue Streak is up and operational, but we are still short of our needed funds to fully restore her.

ACE came to CLP!
CLP hosted the
American Coaster Enthusiasts
National Convention, and your donation helped to get the Blue Streak operating for everyone to enjoy!
We also were awarded a $50,000 Pepsi Refresh Grant thanks to Lisa Rawson, who organized and submitted our project to Pepsi, and all the dedicated participants and voters who helped keep us #1 in the vote!
But it's not over yet....
Years of band-aids on the gem of Conneaut Lake Park,"The Blue Steak", have to come off and are being replaced and reworked with care and precision to restore and preserve this rare wooden beauty. Wooden coasters have a certain feel and characteristic about them that steel coasters just can't match. We have the real deal right here and with your help it can operate again and become an anchor point for Conneaut Lake Park, its enthusiasts, and as an example of this fine style of vintage history.
Your donation can be made safely and securely online via Paypal to help pay for the repairs that are needed for this classic wooden coaster to operate again. These funds will be separate from the general operating funds of Conneaut Lake Park. Funds exceeding the needs for restoration will be escrowed for future work on the Blue Streak at Conneaut Lake Park.
Don't miss the opportunity to be a part of this exciting rebirth. Get started now and watch for further details.
Back on Track!
WE WON THE PEPSI REFRESH GRANT! THANKS TO ALL WHO VOTED!
