Eight years ago this week — Sept. 16, 2007 — the Big Dipper came to a screeching halt, the water was drained from Turtle Beach, and the beloved Geauga Lake Amusement Park shut its doors for good.

Since that time, the park has remained dormant and decaying in Bainbridge Township, save for the occasional ruin porn photographer who ventures past the rusty gates or the unnamed drone that flies over the coaster wasteland to offer nostalgic northeast Ohioans a peek inside the old attraction.



One such video popped up on YouTube just last week, thanks to our pals at Aerial Agents. Just in time for the anniversary, here's the latest birds-eye view of the abandoned Geauga Lake Amusement Park.
