Last week, Brian Krosnick published the sort of comprehensive history of Geauga Lake that we all need to read now and then — the necessary fuel for our nostalgia. It's not a happy tale.
A brief excerpt:
It was unthinkable and somewhat mind-boggling that Six Flags Worlds of Adventure could exist at all, so perfectly and romantically divided into a “Wild Rides” and “Wildlife” section, each on opposite sides of a beautiful lake. In other words, they couldn’t have built the park more conceptually interesting if they’d tried. Instead, everything simply fell together in a really picturesque and wonderful way in theory.The whole story — and the lively comments section — is worth a read today.
It was dizzying.
It was doomed.
While we're discussing such matters, does anyone know what Rotor Man is up to these days?
