Established in 1903, the Conneaut Lake Amusement Lake Park still keeps the old Victorian style, as though the owners forgot to change everything according to the demands of our fast-paced world. However, this is a vintage style, which is a peculiarity of the Conneaut Amusement Lake Park, as well as today's well-forgotten novelty. Nevertheless, the park is less crowded today, probably due to the fact that people prefer ultra-modern and high-tech amusement rides to old carousels. For those, who seek escapism, tranquility, moderate amusement and an old-days experience, the Conneaut Lake Amusement Park caters the best from rides to attractions.
The Blue Streak, the park's famous roller coaster, was the first roller coaster to designate a classic coaster by ACE (American Coaster Enthusiasts). It is the sixth oldest wooded coaster in the United States and the ONLY shallow Ed Vettel Design that is still in operation. The length of the Blue Streak is two thousand and nine hundred feet and the top speed is fifty meters per hour. The trains are also original Ed Vettel's, which have been restored and put back into service. In addition, the Blue Streak is skillfully built into natural surroundings and provides old-days thrilling rides and breathtaking views at the same time. The other attractions include the Skythriller, the Haunted House, The Bug, a century-old carousel with original wooden horses and the Kiddie Land, which comprises a rotating tea cup ride, Tubs of Fu and a wading pool.
Limitless dancing, banquets, concerts and proms are held in the Dreamland Ballroom, a Victorian dance pavilion, located on the main midway of the Conneaut Lake Amusement Park and overlooking the spectacular Conneaut Lake. Entertainment and special events at the Conneaut Lake Amusement Park are carefully planned to meet all tastes and requirements. Special events contain everything from dinner theaters to motorcycle riders and special music. Here you can enjoy a variety of musical performances, ranging from rock to polka and customized orders are welcome. The events are taken place in the Dreamland Ballroom and Beach Club, a renowned dining and entertainment facility.
The Campland is a specialty of the Conneaut Lake Amusement Park for eminent campers. The Campland offers varieties of camp cabins, a convenience store and a gift shop, a game room and a playground, a TV Room, beach swimming (across the road), a picnic table and a fire ring at each campsite.
The Hotel Conneaut is for those, who long for an unforgettable experience and historic ambiance and, in fact, it is the only hotel, left from a dozen of Conneaut Lake Park hotels, once operated in the area. It is a vintage Victorian hotel, built in 1903, which offers rustic and pleasant accommodations, similar to those, offered in the old days. The hotel has always kept strong links to the past. Last year, the dining room of the hotel, called "Steak on the Lake", was changed to Elisabeth's Dining Room to reflect the Victorian epoch in the decor of the one hundred and three-year-old facility and in honor of the hotel's renowned ghost, Elisabeth, who was supposedly burnt in a fire while waiting for her bridegroom. Although no fire was recorded in the hotel, the story continues to be told through generations.
