Travel Channel Filming at Conneaut Lake Park

Poor, run-down Conneaut Lake Park may finally be getting the facelift it deserves. This week, the Travel Channel is filming the pilot episode of an amusement park makeover show at Conneaut Lake Park. We were signed up to volunteer, but the darn show ended up changing everything around and our shifts were canceled. We did next best thing and stopped by to check it out.

As far as we could tell, Monday morning was mostly spent filming 'before' shots. When we arrived around 1:00, the renovation on The Devil's Den had started. It looks like it's going to become a cave theme. Not sure how that's going to turn out, or if the 'Infamous Gum Wall' will survive.

The Devil's Den is one of only two surviving rides of it's type, though we're not sure what that type is. We think it's some sort of 'dark ride'. 

The only other action we could see was the construction of a haunted house on the Midway. We can't wait to see the results during Saturday's reveal.
