I hate to hear that. As bad as I hate to say I would rather it be the bumper cars over the roller coaster.

Could be the bumper cars and the little dipper. If it's also the big dipper, then the whip and a couple of other rides / food stands also had to go.

Glad it is burning. I am new to the area and I wouldn't put my child on one of those raggedy rides for anything. We are used to Carowinds and we rode by Camden Park one day and my kid looked at me like I was nuts when I said its an" amusement park". More like a death trap to me!

Don't like it, don't go. You're NEW to the area? Why don't you pack your raggedy azz up and go back to the outhouse you came from. You probably came from Morgantown, Southern Pennsylvania where the Pennsylvanis Mountaneers are. Go away you piece of dog crap.

Are there any other details about the fire? I've always loved Camden Park and I'm so sad to hear about this...

The Dodgem' Cars ride is a total loss according to Shawn Wellman, the ride supervisor. He says that due to the age of the ride and the fact that it was made out of nearly all wood, it quickly went up in flames. It is entirely blamed on an electrical fire.

A 24 hour security guard is on staff and heard the popping in the ride and then saw flames. He called 911 and fire services were on scene within minutes. There were no injuries and the park is expected to be back open on Tuesday, minus the Dodgem' Cars. The age of the ride dates back to the 1940s.

It was defiantly the dodgem cars. The fire also spread to the men's restroom and another close building. The coasters are fine as far as I know.

Sounds like another insurance job just like the roller rink was years ago. The place is on the verge of bankruptcy every year and nobody will step in to help. The city of Huntington is worried about a joke called Pullman Square which is the most boring outdoor plaza/ entertainment area there is. Couldn't of picked worse retailers to fill those spaces. They should be investing in Camden Park and making it better. Also our no good state senator should be caring about places like these instead of trying to suck up to a joke of a president and taking WV guns. We already lost " Foxfire Resort " this should of been a priority for West Virginia since it gets kids outdoors and gets them active while learning about nature. Instead they stay locked inside and play Xbox and on the Internet because of the FREE cable Internet they received from taxpayers dollars. The whole system is screwed up and nobody seems to care. Kudos to Camden park for playing the game the only way they could.

They should offer a discount on their tickets since they're now down to what 4 rides?
