Also reportedly lost in the blaze were one of the Blue Streak trains and several of the park's Fascination machines. The State Police Fire Marshall has ruled the cause of the fire as "undetermined."
The Beach Club opened on June 8, 1935 and over the years has been a popular night spot and the centerpiece of many lakefront activities. The facility took over as the primary live music venue for the park following the February 2008 Dreamland Ballroom fire. The attached Dockside building had been recently renovated. Since 2008 the Beach Club has been leased and operated by Park Restoration LLC.[Read More] [Discuss]

July 5, 2013 - Tumble Bug rides again!Once upon a time, the Bug was a common sight in parks around the country. Now CLP's Tumble Bug is one of only two remaining in operation worldwide and had been in need of repairs since the end of the 2012 summer season. The ride's manufacturer went out of business long ago and parts are not easily obtained. Adams Amusements has pulled off what many thought would be almost impossible. The CLP Tumble Bug is alive again and running better than ever. Great job Lenny & Crew! [Read More] [Discuss]
