This is one of the few pieces left of the Ragin’ Wolf Bobs at what used to be Geauga Lake Amusement Park. We spent many a day and evening riding the rides at the park when we were first married and when the progeny were younger. Good times to be sure. But a few years ago it all came to a sad end when another larger amusement park corporation bought Geauga Lake, let it run for another year or two and then shut it down and took the best rides out for installation elsewhere, leaving a sad and empty shell of a place.
The park, or what is left of it, is in the same general area as Chez Knit. I drive by it almost every day for one reason or another. From the “front” of the park you can see the empty and weed filled parking lots and the front entrance quickly being taken over by trees. But if you drive around the back you can see through the chain link fence to the slowly crumbling roller coaster at the back of the park.
It just breaks my heart.
And oh how I wish I could wander around the park with my camera.
I suppose I could but the numerous “No Trespassing” signs are a bit off putting.
