Blue Streak was a wooden roller coaster located at Conneaut Lake Park in Conneaut Lake, Pennsylvania, USA. It was the world's 17th oldest roller coaster.
Blue Streak opened on July 3, 1938.
The ride would be closed from 1995 to 1996. It reopened on May 17, 1997.
Conneaut Lake Park was closed after the 2006 season and sat abandoned until 2009. Blue Streak wouldn't reopen until September 2, 2010.
Blue Streak and Conneaut Lake Park did not operate at all in 2020. While the park reopened in 2021, Blue Streak remained closed, as repairs were needed for it to further operate. On January 4, 2022, when Blue Streak's demolition had started, the coaster was partially destroyed by fire after a controlled burn nearby became out-of-hand. Firefighters safely extinguished the fire. The rest of the coaster was demolished.
Single train with 3 cars. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in 3 rows, for a total of 18 riders per train.
