    The Castle of Fun greeted most visitors as they stepped off the trains (Near where Kiddieland is today). It was a fun house with slides, mirrors and moving barrels. Later it would become the Crazy Maze featuring Laughing Sal, a mechanical woman who laughed all day.

    July 4th historically was a big day for the park even when it was still known as Lynce's Landing. The "Conneautville Courier" reported in 1881 "The Fourth was the biggest day Conneaut Lake has ever known. Early in the day vehicles commenced pouring in at different landings and a pretty nearly stream was kept up about all day." Within a few years the crowds numbered near a few thousand, and as trains and trolleys began transporting visitors to the park those numbers only continued to grow.

    From a 1903 pamphlet by the Bessemer Railroad which had a controlling interest in Exposition Park and a train stop immediately at the park. Relationships between the railroads and resorts like Exposition park were common at this time since they were mutually beneficial and profitable for obvious reasons. The last train traveled to the park in 1971. Even though the tracks have been removed at the park, their footprint can still be seen through aerial views of the park via Google.
