Here's a shot of the marquee for perhaps the finest amusement park there is. This is the sign for Knoebels Amusement Park that can be seen out on the road.

Camden Park

A great amusement park to visit while in Huntington, West Virginia is Camden Park (not to be confused with Camden Yards, the baseball park).

Open since 1903, Camden is home to the wooden Big Dipper roller coaster. Visitors speculate on what is better, the great colorful carnival-like sign or the thrilling ride itself.

Rumors state that this park is just "barely hanging on", so if you'd like to see a great sign (and ride a classic wooden coaster while you're at it), stop by Camden soon.

UPDATE 01/02 : Rumors now persist that the park will be adding a new coaster to replace the Thunderbolt Express... which was called, "The Screamin' Demon" when it was at Kings Island. 01-02

Yes, below the Camden Park clown is hidden neon! From top to bottom, the neon signs say: Rides / Picnic / Fun for All. Many thanks to John Salvatore for Camden Park update.

 

UPDATE 06/07 : The white advertisement sign that had once covered the lower portion of the sign for many years has been removed during the 2005 season to reveal 3 smaller neon signs underneath the clowns feet. 06-07
