The Tumble Bug is a flat ride. It is fast, fun, rerideable, it has a large capacity, and a long ride duration.

Many people think of Blue Streak when they think of Conneaut Lake, as it is the perceived "star" of the park. And dont get me wrong, Blue Streak is good. But in my eyes, the real headliner of this park is one of the simplest looking flat rides they offer - the Tumble Bug. I give major kudos to parks that cherish and hold on to attractions like this that are much older and truly one of a kind. This is one of only 2 of this type of ride in existence today. The other resides at my home park Kennywood, and although I find that ride (Turtle) to be a blast and truly amazing, Tumble Bug at Conneaut is even better!! Theyve really done an incredible job with the upkeep and appearance of this ride. It looks incredible, and also has that great old feel to it. The ride operator moved nice and quick and filled up the cars, keeping waits very minimal. As for the ride itself, it is just hard to say in words how FUN this thing is. It feels quicker than it probably is, and before long riders are just laughing it up as they slide all around and even get little pops of air over the humps. The cars are roomy and there are essentially no restraints, which makes me think back to what it was like back in the time where rides like this were more common and society wasnt all sue-happy! The ride cycle is outstanding as well, as Ive always gotten a very long ride on this. Simply put, Tumble Bug is the best ride at Conneaut Lake to me. It is loads of fun, wonderfully unique, and incredibly rare. If the parks open and you happen to be there, without a doubt the best advice I can give is this - DONT MISS the exceptional Tumble Bug!!

This is superior to the one at Kennywood. Conneaut ran this one with a very long cycle that gave around 15 or so laps. During the ride I slid around the car and there even were a few small pops of air. Great old classic.

One of the best flat experiences I have ever had. APPEARANCE-10 Since there are only 2 of these left I will compare it to the other one at KW and this looks better. They did a nice job keeping it old school, but nice. CAPACITY-8 They filled the cars quickly and the op did a nice job. RIDE QUALITY-10 You slide around, get small pops of air, have almost no restraints and plenty of room. Add to that about 15 laps around the track and you have one excellent flat. FUN-10 I laughed throughout the whole ride and had an awesome memory of my parents and wife that will never leave and isnt that the number one goal of any ride. RERIDE-10 My favorite ride at the Lake even though Blue Streak was much better the second time. OVERALL-48 AVG-9.6 A truly unique experience and something I hope the Lake can build on in the new future.

9 for its historical significance. Very few of these old rides survive. While not all that thrilling compared to some of the current types of flat rides, this is still a fun ride.
