Name: Brittany Eiler
Town: Rogers, OH
Time Period: almost every year
Memory: Since I can remember every year my dad would take me and my three older brothers up to the park. I was so scared of the Blue Streak, 'n' seeing how I'm the youngest I wanted to be kool and hang out with my brothers, so showing them that I was just like them I went on the Blue Streak, and as soon as it went into the tunnel thing in the begining I cried till it stopped and even after. But now I love it. I remember the little zoo that it had, I only remember it being there once though. Even now I make sure that I go on the carousel, its my tradition. I remember always getting yelled at with my brothers while riding the Doggem cars, because we would hit each other like bumper cars. haha Good times. Last summer I heard that it might be shutting down and I literely cried. This summer I plan on working there. My aunt has a house outside the park right were the horse's are on the corner.

Name: Alan Sikes
Town: Springfield, Virginia
Time Period: 1950's to Present
Memory: (I was born,raised in Meadville and went to the Park often. I have many fond memories of the summer highschool dances at the Dreamland Ballroom where kids from ourarea,Pittsburg,Ohio,etc., could meet and have fun. I had to be on my best behavior because my dad was one of the cops watching the crowd! While attending college at the "Boro" I worked 2 summers on the Park's Maintenance crew. After many years I returned to the Park last summer and learned of it's needs. A strong tugging of my soul said "DO SOMETHING"! I will continue my "DOING" this summer-WILL YOU! We must keep this unique treasure for others to experience and build memories. See you at the hotel with all our "spirit" friends.
Town: Hiram, Ohio
Time Period: 1960's
Memory: My father had his company picnics at Conneaut Lake Park. I remember, vividly, the deer that were underneath the Blue Streak turnaround, near the picnic area. They would always come close to the fence line. I love the train ride and the pony ride. My first roller coaster ride was the Blue Streak at age 8. I rode with my father. I also remember Fairyland Forest across the street from the park. There was this bear that would use a pulley system to fetch a bucket that was filled with food. I wish I could 1960's pictures of these two parks.
