You May Be Shocked To See What’s Left Of Geauga Lake In Ohio

What was once the world’s largest theme park is now an overgrown land of decaying roller coasters, empty concession stands and abandoned ticket booths that welcome visitors no more.

Geauga Lake Amusement Park has stood abandoned since 2007, after a long history of beloved family vacations (since 1887) and multiple expansions and redesigns. From 2000 to 2004, the park was expanded and became Six Flags Ohio. From 2004 to 2007, it became known as Geauga Lake again, under the ownership of Cedar Fair.

Those who remember annual family vacations to Geauga Lake may likewise remember the occasional trip to SeaWorld. Once a neighbor to Geauga Lake from the late 60s until 1997, the beloved aquatic park left Ohio with nothing but memories of fulfilled sea themed days. Today, Wildwater Kingdom is the lone functioning park in Aurora.

For an ariel tour of what remains of Geauga Lake (since September 2015), watch the video below:
