Here comes another train wreck!

https://www.gofundme.com/GeaugaLakeIsBack



My favorite line from the video: "He's hoping to raise some twenty million dollars, could say he has a ways to go, in the three days the campaign has been up, he's raised a total of forty dollars."

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! :lol: :lmao: :Pr :lmao:

You can even hear the reporter laughing while he delivers that sentence. I don't have much else to say about this...

I'm honestly staggered at the publicity this campaign has garnered in local media. I live in Toledo (2.5 hours away) and our news stations even had a segment on it! I applaud anyone who tries to build and present a genuine case for the property renewal, but this is so ludicrous I can't do anything but laugh. Where are these numbers coming from? The economic propositions are absolutely crazy!

Why do I still have a donkey title???

^^ I don't know, I feel like you guys are missing out on an incredible marketing opportunity by not putting the Theme Park Review name on a brick for $5,000. :lol:

As a former GL employee and a kid who spent his summers there I am and will always be truly heartbroken it is gone.

That said, people need to get over it. It will never come back, ever. I doubt even Elon Musk could bring it back at this point! :lol:

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

My favorite part in all these insane "Bring back..." or "Save the..." schemes is how nothing makes any sense and the people who have set them up don't even notice how insanely stupid and totally unprofessional it all comes across...

Screen Shot 2018-02-28 at 11.23.43 AM.png


"As of right now – this GoFundMe is set to only allow us to raise enough money to acquire the land." Which they have set at $20 Million.

"Phase 1: Land Aquisition - $50 Million" (Acquisition spelled wrong on their GoFundMe, BTW...)

"It is possible that we are able to acquire the land for as low as 12 million."

So which is it? $20 million? $50 million? or $12 million?

WTF!!! You just threw out 3 totally different numbers within two paragraphs regarding the same thing! I honestly cannot tell if this entire campaign is "Trolling? Or Just Stupid?" Probably both...

If I lived up in the Cleveland area I would have a very simple solution to my Geauga Lake void and that would be "drive 1 hour west."
