Where are we going today?

Here's a FUN fact! Did you know that Conneaut Lake Park was actually opened ALL the way back in 1892? Yep! In fact it was originally called Exposition Park, but it still gave families the same amount of fun as it does now!

Today, Conneaut Lake Park holds that same traditional fairground feel, but with modern additions, making it the best of both worlds! Kids will love the super fun rides and attractions, and parents might see it as a nostalgic trip down memory lane to their childhood.

The park itself has a wonderful family atmosphere, with rides, attractions and lots of fun to be had. The roller coasters have varying degrees of severity, so you can certainly get to experience those thrills - however you like them!

Don't miss Blue Streak - a wooden coaster that still uses it's original rolling stock and braking system. You're riding history!

The Carousel is certainly worth a go too, as it was installed back in 1910 and still to this day gives kids a great, classic time. 

Families can compete on the bumper cars, and kids can pretend to be pilots on the Flying Scooters.  From tilt-a-whirls, to spins and turns, there are attractions for all at Conneaut LAke Park!

It's not just theme park rides at this fun theme park though! Nope! Kiddieland is perfect for those little ones, as there is a lovely mix of things to do.

They can ride kiddie sized cars, or real sized ponies! (In fact, pony rides have been enjoyed since 1920 - see there is history everywhere!)

If you are up for the challenge, try out the mini golf too! It's the perfect family experience, and you can spend time together (and try and outdo each other too!)

Make some time for the outdoor adventures too, as Conneaut Lake Park is right on Conneaut Lake, which is the largest natural glacier lake in Pennsylvania! How amazing! So with swimming, water skiing, or simply strolling by the water, there is plenty to keep you entertained!

    This place "had" it's heyday from 1930 till 1980. It sealed it's fate after changing hands many times since. Burned down or rotting buildings. Only one ride worth the trip and that's if you are a coaster enthusiast and IF they are open. and you will pay too much for so very little. Sadly to say, the place should be leveled.

    This place was horrible. We went there while we were on our camping vacation 2 years ago. None of the rides were operating (maybe 3 for teenagers). Good place for LITTLE kids, but overpriced and ridiculous for anyone over the age of 6!

    First, I applaud the idealism and spirit of anyone who thinks this place is worth reviving. I so hope I'm wrong. People like me (the pragmatic naysayers) ruin the fun.

    That said, this place is a dump! No... really. I cut behind some buildings and it looked like an IED went off. And apparently the leaf blower is broken because no one could clean off a significant pile of wet leaves from the fall. Weird.

    Here's the problem: teens are bored by these rides. Adults will spend the time and money to go elsewhere. There's a reason the dozens of...Read More

    Are you people kidding me?! How can you judge a place by the fact that it was closed. You could have just looked at their website or Facebook to see when they opened for the season. Don't be giving the place one star for your laziness. It says on both sites what day they reopen for the summer season. To the person complaining about Halloween, they ask you to be there an hour early, because it takes an hour to walk through everything. There is to much to see and a lot of people there walking around. A simple phone call could have saved you some gas...Read More

Here's the problem: teens are bored by these rides. Adults will spend the time and money to go elsewhere. There's a reason the dozens of little parks dotted across the area have dried up, burned down, and blown away.

The only real attraction is for parents of small kids. Because little kids don't care if the ride is boring - they're just thrilled with life. So Kiddie Land is worth the $15 wrist band just to allow your ADD psycho 3 year old to run around.

Also... there's no fun lighting at night. Fairs and amusement parks are most charming at night. Here it's just a few bare fluorescent bulbs, maybe a flood light.a

If the location were exceptional I could see saving this place. But it's not ON a lake, just near it. So definitely go if you have very little kids (2-5) but otherwise I honestly can't say there's enough charm or historical interest to make this worth your time or trouble. I would seriously just go to your local county fair - same if not better rides.

And I truly hope I eat every one of these words in 5 years!

There is to much to see and a lot of people there walking around. A simple phone call could have saved you some gas and not risked you killing people doing 75 mph. Maybe you should plan better next time. I mean Halloween is going on for the 31 days and you couldn't show up another day before 11pm? It's all about planning, which appears to me that everyone lacks.

Okay, this amusement park is amazing. I love that it's not huge like Cedar Point or even Kennywood. I love that I am shaded from the sun and can take my time walking around. The people are always so friendly and the park is always clean. Most people don't understand that this park is mostly run through donations and volunteers. They always have something fun going on that you can be apart of. It's free to walk around if you don't want to ride anything so that's nice. You can buy tickets if you just want to ride the Blue Streak or you can buy a wristband. I have been going there since I was 7 and I will never stop supporting such a great place that is such a landmark of history.
