    It is very sad. The park comes to life again in September and October for "Ghost Lake" activities, but other than that I don't even remember going to the actual park since I was in elementary school. I've never even ridden the Blue Streak. We just came back from the Fair and everything is always the same, give or take a few new deep fried treats.

    Hey fellow PA residents! I'm from the Susquehanna Valley. Think the home of Little Leage Baseball - Williamsport - and I'm fairly close. I'm an hour from State College and an hour from Wilkes Barre....where I will be dropping my son off on Friday to begin college.

    I'm only 20 minutes from Knoebels Amusement Park....anyone heard of it?

    Glad to know there are so many of us on here.

    Our newspaper had an article about a lot of volunteering that had been going on at the park this summer. I haven't been there myself in years. It seems like every time they get some forward motion going to get the park back on its feet, something bad happens.

    Hey Meadville! I'm in Sharon. We were just discussing Meadville today at work. We saw an ad in a magazine for "Fiercely made in Meadville" Channellock. We just drove up your way en route to Erie for the Biggest Loser half marathon on the 17th and then again to hit up Splash Lagoon before school started this week.

    So sad about the Beach House. That park cannot catch a break. I remember going every year as a kid for work picnics for my dad. Do you remember Fairyland Forrest across the street? I went there for my kindergarten field trip a LONG time ago!

    Just seeing this - I live in Lemoyne. Mom lives in Camp Hill. Too funny. Wish I'd known about the June meet up in Hershey. I wonder if anyone would be interested in another for the Hershey Park in the Dark or Christmas Candylane?

    We flew to Sanford using Allegient in February. easy flight, though they do charge you for everything (including carryons) but you do have to either rent a car or hire a service -- no magical express from Sanford.

    Only on a PA related board could someone be discussing little ol' Meadville. :lmao: I don't think I've ever seen one of those ads! How were the marathon and Splash Lagoon? We only went to Splash once and that was a handful of years ago.

    Sorry, but I don't remember Fairyland Forrest. Just checked with my mom and she never took us there, only to the Park. What was it like? And apparently the ol' Park is still going. I just heard on the radio that they were having some events this weekend like cover bands and such.

    Have you looked at the frontier flights out of Wilmington? They don't fly out of Harrisburg for our dates (switched the schedule to Tuesdays and Saturdays). I looked at the Wilmington flights and could have booked five round trip tickets for $750. It's gone up a bit since then. We decided not to go with that flight because we're leaving in January and I didn't want to risk having issues with the road, but I was soooo tempted. At the end, I booked a Delta flight that has a fairly short layover in Kentucky. We could have had a cheaper flight from BWI taking airtran. But when I factored in the extra driving (HIA is twenty minutes from our house), it sort of balanced out. At least when we land, we'll be home in half an hour and not looking at a trip up 83 North to get home.

My husb and I are flying on Sunday, my sis and daughter are taking the auto train and arr. also on Sunday. We are renting a condo outside Disney and hope to enjoy some family time at Christmas. Love this board. Have already got a lot of advice.

    Christmas Candylane - November 16th - meeting up outside Chocolate World at 4 p.m.
