  1. Pretty much this. They continued to grow the rides profile which made more folks want to visit but they never did much on the infrastructure side and paired with baffling inability to communicate intents with the local government the whole area wasn’t ready for a massive park. It’s been a while but the majority of the Sixx time, wasn’t the road in just a two lane through the woods? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. This list is very similar to the one I created back when we needed changes for 2010 and then 2020... which means the park is going the opposite direction (IMO). - Parking lot: I thought when they redid the entrance we’d get an entire make over. The entrance looks great. Then it’s the Wild West. Is it gravel? Is it a festival lot? Is it the original blacktop from opening day? - Bring back the charm: the park continuously slides towards vanilla and corporate all over the place. From music to restaurants to rides. It feels very cookie cutterish. Which is why when something does open it feels ve
  3. 100% this. SIX spread that park to thin. It was not near any major highways or byways and was difficult to get in and out of. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Didn’t want to create a new topic This fits in here: https://www.cleveland.com/entertainment/2020/10/aerial-footage-of-former-geauga-lake-and-sea-world-ohio-parks.html?fbclid=IwAR3vijz93gfHP3NF8f7nR8HYcWtWTnDXJAE2p3QEasZMa4YhmUhelR7z9BA Also hello! It’s been awhile. Good to see you all have kept this place clean and tidy! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I think you all (the people who don’t think it’s a big deal) are missing the point either purposely or on accident. 1: It has a higher death rate than the flu 2: it’s a vascular swelling disease. Which means that if you don’t die then you have a higher risk of organ failures and strokes. So it’s not just the death rate but also the “we don’t want people to have life long illness because of this” Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  7. All I know is that if they put something in, RIP the trees and secluded feel on The Beast. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. This aged not very well very quickly. I’m sorry! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I think these two situations are not alike at all. Coney is still easily accessible by major highways and is part of a major city area. Many go to Coney for the pool while the rides were a great bonus. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I miss the HB and Nick days. The geyser was my favorite!!! I have kids. They enjoy snoopy but they have no love of him. Glory days huh? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. International street had such wide streets Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. With the trams it’s not always going to be best for people who can. It was always a way to help people who have trouble. You have kids and no stroller? Doesn’t matter if it’s 2 rows or 30 it’s a long haul. If you are older and need frequent breaks but didn’t park in handicap, the tram helps. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I think it was left if I’m right? Where it turned right and you could look down and see Adventure Express? It was the first and only ride where I have grayed out on it. Almost a complete black out. But man it was fun. I hated the bicycle seat though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. We’re here we just don’t participate nearly as much as we did. For reasons you mentioned. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Let’s not forget that to get to GL is/was a nightmare as well. CP is no easy drive either. But GL was way way worse. We take for granted that KI is right off a major highway. Just a few miles north from a major interchange as well. A lot of these parks were local parks that grew and people visited. KI was planned (very well IMO) from the beginning. It was time that eroded KI (loss of its hotel, camp grounds, golf course....) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
