I loved Geauga Lake when we first went there in 1999, and hated it when we went back after Six Flags had taken it over a couple of years later.
Bloody Six Flags just killed the atmosphere in the park with their shitty stupid rules, heavy handed security guards, and gimmick rides that are floorless this and flying that and LIM super duper waste of fucking time.

Sad because I think that CF really did try to make it work.

I will always remember the old Art Deco side of the park & 'Mr Hydes Nasty Fall' ....... Brilliant.

'O Yes' there was always the sex shop across the road !!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh no... :'-( I really liked Geauga Lake (when it was Six Flags) We had a great time there (and found the staff really friendly and not at all Six-Flags-like!) I shall miss it... Oh well, have to find a new most favourite steelie now!  garfield

If you mean Dominator, I'm sure Muttley knows where it's being moved to .....

There's very strong rumours Batmanator will be heading to Kings Dominion, there's no way they would scrap a 7 year old B&M.

The Impulse has been sitting at Dorney Park for several months, now going to be renamed as Voodoo.

The SLC is apparently on its way to Michigan's Adventure, can't remember what was said about the boomerbang.

Raging Wolf Bob's will no doubt be levelled after the accident, Villain lets hope they level it but god help the park that gets it.

Big Dipper - No idea, Double Loop - No idea.

2001, I thought the park was ok, the best coasters I thought were the Floorless and the Impulse.

2003, was pretty pants. Park was dead, no atmosphere. Floorless had run in quite nicely, and the Batman stunt show over the lake was pretty good.

Was there a nasty accident on The Bob's Mr Mutters ?

I remember that because it was a bit rough, I made Ryan hold his arms in the air all the way round and he lost his £200 watch !!!!!

What are friends for Eh !

They put one of the Villains trains onto it, and a few months back the rear car derailed and lodged in between the rails. No serious injury's if I remember.
