Eerie Abandoned Theme Parks That Totally Creep Us Out

Geauga Lake Park operated from 1887 to 2007 — one of a few amusement parks in the country to span the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries. Already a popular spot for picnics and swimming when it opened, it featured everything from an Olympic-size swimming pool to a race track, dance hall, theater, and bowling alley. Throughout the decades, Geauga Lake added many attractions and rides, including a number of popular roller coasters and other parks on surrounding sites. In 2016 the last of those, Wildwater Kingdom, called it quits. Grocery store chain Meijer had contracted to purchase the property, but it has abandoned plans to build a store there. Most recently, a 245-acre residential development was proposed for part of the site. Many of the park's rides have been moved to other amusement parks, like Kings Dominion and Missouri's Worlds of Fun.
