Yes the Cedar Fair people ruined all of this for everyone. When I heard who bought it I knew it would eventually be shut down. Those are terrible people which is why I refuse to go to cedar point or kennywood.
If a name you come up with has already been submitted, it is back to the drawing board.....it truly is a contest in the Spirit of Innovation.
This place was my first job. I even have a scar on my left leg when I feel into that brakes on the Big Dipper. I even had sex for the first time in that park ;)... Oh the memories.
Cedar Fair (the owners of cedar point) bought this park and Kennywood in PA, and deliberately closed Geauga Lake to drive business to Kennywood and Cedar Point. FACT
Lakewood location has a lot of character, if you don't like Avon, come hang out in my neighborhood.
So many wonderful memories from this place. Does it strike anyone else odd that cedar fair (the owners of cedar point) bought this park and let it die?
why doesnt sumone buy it and open it back up i know i would go no matter what how bout anyone else
There used to be thriving tennis clubs and racquet ball clubs in the area....but when the boom waned, the places faded away This historic building needs a solid, long-term business plan -- simply, city officials should get it right the first time.
The Big Dipper was my first coaster. My best friend and I had to psyche ourselves up for it, and afterward, we got right back on. Grad night was here, too. It makes me so sad to think that it is gone.
I do wish someone would give some ink to the newly opened Books Nooks & Nibbles in Broadview Heights. The indie local bookstore you're least likely to be mugged outside of.
It appears that the Scene Magazine has no problem stealing photos to put on their website. There is not proper attribution and I am not sure that these images were released by the rightful owner.
Oh man it was the best. My big sister would take me and my friend Jayne to the park. She would go on the wooden roller coaster with me get off then go on with Jayne, then get off and do it all over again with both of us.
I loved looking over at Sea World wanting to go there next. I miss both of those beautiful old parks.
I liked it..good movie
Amazing! Excellant service and food. Lychee marti, mango cheesecake was awesome our dinners and app was so good you were so full but didnt want to stop eating.
So sad to see such a great place in such shambles. I use to go there all the time as a kid and as an adult. I hope some day they can bring the good ol' place back to life. It brings tears to my eyes to see that place like that such a shame. But nonetheless I have great memories.....
Such a shame! Rebuild it, bring it back to how it used to be, seaworld and all!!!! What a waste ...
This is soo sad I loved this place growing up
That aggressive quest for chasing a dream is a neat story-line for a short film.
It was great that you could hit Geauga Lake and Sea World all in the same day if you wanted to. Wow, I'm sitting here having flash-backs of my childhood and early teenage years. Those times really were great. Whales, otters, dolphins, the Double Loop, Big Dipper and Texas Twister ... enough said. What the heck happened to NE Ohio since we were kids? All it takes is the right people with the right motives and amount of money to revamp places like this. For the sake of my fellow Ohioans, whom I'm now separated from, I hope it happens.
THE ROTOR MAN!
