TasteBuds head to Conneaut Lake Park

Conneaut Lake Park is still open! After a recent visit to Lago Winery in Jamestown, the TasteBuds made the short drive to Conneaut Lake Park to ride the Blue Streak.

Sure, the park may be in need of a fresh coat of paint, but the historical significance and the passion by the local community to keep the park running provide enough charm to keep riders coming back and keep Conneaut Lake Park open. Rides at the park are pay-per-ride, very reminiscent of a carnival. Not every ride in the park is open, but the classic Blue Streak is still in commission. As an amusement park buff, TasteBudA has always wanted to ride the Blue Streak, the 6th oldest wooden coaster in all of the United States.  Check out our photos below from this very memorable experience.

Blue Streak Hill

The angle at which you are drawn up Blue Streak is quite intense.

But not as intense as the decline, where you practically fly out of your seat.
