AURORA, Ohio — A new video that shows the abandoned Geauga Lake amusement park has gone viral.
From the street, you’d hardly recognize the former amusement park. From the air, drone video provides a new perspective of what the former park has become.
The video, recorded by Nick Nebelski of DiJi Aerial Media and Marc Yaeger on February 6, shows a barren space with most rides removed, leaving only cement footprints in their place. The Big Dipper roller coaster is among the few structures left. The front gate that greeted thousands of guests is now dilapidated.
It’s a far cry from the park that entertained families for more than a century. Cedar Point owner Cedar Fair closed Geauga Lake in 2007, three years after purchasing the park.
