It's a sad day

Geauga Lake Amusement Park will be closing it's gates forever after this season is over. 120 years of operation, and now it's going to be shut down. And all the rides taken apart and scattered across the country. And shopping strips and condos built on the 600 acres of the park.

It's a very sad day.

Despite the fact that I haven't been there in years (it just has never been the same since Sea World left), I'm depressed. A huge piece of local history is going to be razzed and it's all because the management over the last 10 years couldn't get their crap together and keep the park going. Shame on them.

(Since I am having yet another fun sleepover at my mom's house tonight and am suffering with her obscenely slow dial-up and annoyingly loud keyboard, I'm not posting any of the pictures or links I had planned to include in this rant. You would give up too if you had internet this slow!)

That makes me sad. It used to be such a great little area for a fun. Sea World, Geauga Lake, and the Aurora outlets were all close enough together to make life easy. We spent a lot of weekends up there when we lived in Akron.
