We are getting ready to move in a month, and while packing things up, I came accross boxes of old pictures. These are just a few of them. It takes a long time to scan them and post them, so I will do a little at a time.
We start out with some pictures of cedar point. There are a bunch of the white water landing, and the sea aquarium and pirate ride remains. Some pictures are a little dark, as I took most of them before I ever had a digital camera.
There are also a few pictures from geauga lake.
I hope you enjoy them. I will be posting more as I have time to do so. I have a lot of old park maps as well.
One last look at the final drop of white water landing.
A few of the remains of the original shoot the rapids ride.
Wildcat before the horrid pait job it has today.
The original dodgems sign.
Before planet snoopy, there was the peanuts playground.
The beach midway before wicked twister. Notice the aqarium?
The aqarium was turned into an arcade after all the fish were taken out.
Now we move on to geauga lake.
If you looked to your left near the front gate, you would see villions turnaround.
A little bit of the coaster.
If you looked to your right, you would see x flight.
We start off at a look at white water landings cave.
Walking to the main gate.
The log ride.
A look at sea world the year it closed.
A look at the east side of the park from the ferris wheel.
Back at cedar point, we see the old pirate ride building sitting empty.
The only sign of the ride is the tracks it left.
A look at the maintnance shop
They used to repair the boats in the maintanance shop.
A peek under the rotating platform for white water landing.
The snaking flume. While up there, you got a great view of lake erie and mean streak.
A good look at mean streak.
The big drop at the end of the ride.

Thanks a lot for showing those Geauga Lake pics. I wish I made a couple more visits those last couple of years. I would give alot money for one more ride on Villan, which I thought was one of the best woodies anywhere. I really do miss that park.
Wow, a Boblo brochure! That was my home park Thrillrider, shame what happened to it as well...I loved the GL ones too, I went once, but it was one of those places you felt like you had visited a thousand times.
I have a lot of memories as a child going to boblo island. So when I found these booklets, I was suprised. I just found out a few weeks ago, that the falling star at michigans adventure is from boblo island.
I have a ton more pictures and other older park maps to share. I will post some more real soon.
