Screechin' Eagle

LeSourdsville Lake Amusement Park

LeSourdsville Lake Amusement Park closed after the 2002 season and presently there are no plans to reopen the park. Screechin' Eagle was finally torn down in early August 2011.

Screechin' Eagle is well respected among coaster enthusiasts for its spectacular airtime and wild ride. This classic "out and back" wooden coaster designed by John A. Miller was originally erected as the Cyclone at Moxahala Park, Zanesville, Ohio in 1927. The coaster was then relocated to Lesourdsville Lake Amusement Park in 1938. Presently the Screechin' Eagle runs with a mix of old rolling stock including parts of the train from Elitch Garden's Wildcat coaster.
