Chippewa Lake Park, in Medina County, shut down in 1978 and soon garnered fame as a relentlessly creepy abandoned amusement park.

As of this summer, the only attraction that remains is the park's ferris wheel. For years, however, the park's midway and rides and overall structure remained, even as the property's foliage began to swallow them up.

Here's a slideshow of photos that showcase what the park was since its closing several decades ago. (The property now boasts an entertainment complex, featuring a hotel and spa, restaurants and more.)
