  5. Yes, Magnum has foot pedals to manually unlock restraints, I've yet to see an Arrow without them.
  6. The man who helped make modern Geauga Lake and Funtime Parks has passed. A true visionary he was and the amount of lives he brought joy to are uncountable. http://www.sanduskyregister.com/Obituary/2015/10/03/Gasper-Charles-Lococo.html?ci=stream&lp=7&p=1

  13. The replacement of the mercury statue with an ugly monolith saddens me. It also appears the old light fixtures may also disappear, more sadness. However Cad Cars is staying, Happiness.

  20. Dragster is scheduled to open at ten with the rest of the park. At night you can do both, Beach blast goes from 9-midnight as Luminosity is only a half hour starting at 930pm. Personally, I prefer coaster riding at night.
