Amusement Park Closing Angers Fans, Excites Developers

AURORA, Ohio (AP) The closing of Geauga Lake amusement park is leaving a lot of questions. Roller coaster fans want to know what will happen to the rides and folks who live next to the park outside Cleveland are wondering what will replace it.

Cedar Fair Entertainment say this was the last year for the park. But they are keeping open the Wildwater Kingdom water park that sits next to Geauga Lake. That opens up about 400 acres to developers who already are envisioning a housing development or a golf course community on the site.

Two of the Geauga Lake's roller coasters already are being relocated to other Cedar Fair parks and some others will be going too. But coaster enthusiasts are worried that Cedar Fair will scrap rides including the Big Dipper, a wooden roller coaster built in 1925.
