Just a friendly FYI -- the Mid-Atlantic Coaster Club reports that Camden
Park; Huntington, WV, may be in serious trouble. Apparently, the park
has done "zero" maintenance/improvements over the winter, and are reported
to be experiencing financial difficulties.
MACC was presenting this information as an FYI to coaster enthusiasts,
since this pattern followed both Peony Park and Boblo Island's permanent
closings this year. So, if you haven't yet made it to Camden Park, it's
recommended that you do so...

PS -- As an update on Boblo...almost all of the rides have been sold off at
this point (including the two Vekoma steel coasters). Only a few rides
remain, including a Chance Rotor and train, Hbruetz Paratrooper and roundup,
and the one-of-a-kind Sansei non-looping out-and-back steel coaster.
