Geauga Lake & Wildwater Kingdom
Geauga Lake started in 1888 as a picnic area at the end of a trolley line. In 1995, Premier Parks purchased Funtime Parks which gave them control of Geauga as well as Darien Lake and Wyandot Lake. The Six Flags brand name came to Aurora in 2000, but the title of Six Flags Ohio only lasted one season. In January 2001, Six Flags purchased the adjacent SeaWorld park for $110 million in cash. The 232-acre marine park was combined with the 520-acre Six Flags park, and Six Flags Worlds of Adventure was born. On March 10, 2004, Six Flags announced the sale of the park to Cedar Fair, Ltd. for $145 million. Besides changing the name back to Geauga Lake, Cedar Fair also renamed many rides since they don't have rights to the DC Comics characters used by Six Flags. Beginning with the 2008 season, Geauga Lake & Wildwater Kingdom became exclusively a water park with many of its rides and coasters relocated to other Cedar Fair parks.
Among the coasters that have been removed from the park during its history are:
Dominator (Formerly Batman Knight Flight)
||Raging Wolf Bobs
||Big Dipper (Formerly Clipper)
(Formerly Mind Eraser)
|Beaver Land Mine Ride
(Formerly Road Runner Express)
Thunderhawk (Formerly Serial Thriller)
Steel Venom (Formerly Superman: Ultimate Escape)
