LeSourdsville Lake/Americana Revisited

No one had ridden the classic "Screechin` Eagle" wooden roller coaster, or any other ride for that matter since 2002. In fact, the park hadn't seen any guests since it closed a week before it was planned to end it's season back in August of 2002, with its Halloween and holiday events also being cancelled. In June of 2007, myself and two other photographers were permitted to enter the park property. A place that once provided so many memories and served as a symbol of the fading era of the "classic" American amusement park, sat quiet and abandoned.
