(( The merry-go-round stopped spinning and The Shooting Star took its final plunge on October 19-th, 1986. Lakeside Amusement Park was up for sale. Owners said they could no longer compete with larger amusement parks. Attendance dropped, and they said the park just wasn't bringing in enough money. Wayne Saunders was employed there since 1969.

Lakeside Amusement Park was a Salem landmark for 66 years. When it opened in 1920 it featured a roller coaster, one other ride and a swimming pool which was the main attraction , that closed in the 1960's. Asbury Maury was sad to see the park close.

Throughout the years, Lakeside did what it could to attract customers. They added country music concerts and a new admission schedule, but the crowds didn't turn out. The park was sold in 1984 for a reported 1.6 million dollars. Lakeside got another face lift, but then more hurdles. The Flood of '85 left the park underwater. Damage exceeded 1 million dollars. The park recovered from the flood and then another tragedy. In May of 1986, Thomas Glenn Austin of Wirtz was cutting grass between the tracks when he was struck and killed by a four-ton roller coaster car on a test run. In September, the park announced it was closing. A spokesman said it had nothing to do with the fatal accident, just that the park was not making enough money.

Mountain bikers say their sport is addictive. Jim Vodnik agrees. He says the woods are peaceful, the trails challenging making the sport a good workout.
Vodnik works and rides at the Explore Park. The trial is just two years old and was mostly built by volunteers. In fact more than 3000 hours of volunteer labor went into building the nearly seven mile course.
