On September 21st 2007, Cedar Fair announced that beginning in 2008, "Geauga Lake and Wild Water Kingdom" in Aurora, OH would operate exclusively as a water park to be named "Geauga Lake's Wild Water Kingdom," bringing an sudden and unexpected end to the 120 year old Geauga Lake while simultaneously disillusioning thousands of loyal guests.

In the days that followed, an outpouring of support spread across many outlets on the internet.  From message boards to news articles, everyone had an opinion either for or against the decision to transform the park.

This site has been created in an attempt to connect those outlets and the people who created and contributed to them.  Links will be updated as they become available.  Neither this website or its authors have any affiliation with Geauga Lake or Cedar Fair, nor do we assume any responsibility for any of the content on any linked website.  Thank you for visiting this site.

Updated - September 1st, 2016

Nine years after Cedar Fair closed down the "rides side," the company announced that September 5th, 2016 would be the
operational end for "Geauga Lake's Wild Water Kingdom."
