Lets face it...the park is done. The waterpark will survive, but the rides section is done for.

I have a friend in Kentucky. He recently suggested to the Kochs that they build a Mega-Lite in Bluegrass Boardwalk. They said, and I quote: "That's not a bad idea."

Granted, this is complete hearsay, but if Bluegrass Boardwalk does get a Mega-Lite, you heard it from me first.

Again, this is just based on a phone conversation with someone who submitted a suggestion and got a response.
If this post expresses an opinion that you do not like, please refrain from bashing me, changing my profile pic and title, or sending me angry PMs. Instead try posting a thought-out response. I try to respect your views; please respect mine. Thank you.

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

Why am I not shocked in the least. I have a feeling it will be just the waterpark with a limited amount of rides for a few years until they can build up the capital.

I remember on Holiday World's Facebook page that they were "Researching" on Intamin and BGT's Cheetah Hunt. They may be looking into Intamin ;)

Pretty interesting article there by Ed Hart, does raise a few questions about the history of this project. I agree with most of his points, except I have to think that the team that won the bid to operate the park (Holiday Workd/Kochs) had the places best interest in mind all along. Well see what ends up happening with this place, but after these recent reports of the existing condition of the property I can't get my hopes too high.

What can we expect what with the way SFI just took what they could as fast as they could & then left the rest to rot?I applaud the Kochs for wanting to take up the challenge of turning the place around & bringing it back from the dead...too bad this couldn't have been done with GL & or SFAW.

Geauga Lake is still kinda open. Too bad Cedar Fair won't add any waterpark attractions to it since 2006.
