It was old. And kind of basic. But it was a must-ride every time you went to the park and, for many of us, our first coaster! The Big Dipper originally opened in 1925 as Sky Rocket, it was renamed Clipper in the late 1940s and eventually named Big Dipper in 1969. The ride was demolished on October 17, 2016.

Ok, so when you got on Raging Wolf Bobs, your body took quite the beating. But that's what made it so memorable, right? That is, of course, until June 16, 2007 when the train derailed. Later that season, the ride was permanently closed.
Definitely couldn't eat before taking a ride on the Texas Twister. But it sure was fun! It was the very first Huss Top Spin in a North American amusement park when it debuted in 1993.
The Double Loop. It's simple. But a classic. And, for many of us, it was our first roller coaster with a loop!
Mr. Hyde's Nasty Fall left a unique feeling in the stomachs of its passengers. It's one that has gone unmatched since the park closed.
Fun fact: Before the ride was installed at Geauga Lake, it had been at two other amusement parks.
If you never got hit with water from Shipwreck Falls, did you even go to Geauga Lake? We've all felt the mist while walking past the ride. And, if you actually dared to get on, you were likely soaking wet for the remainder of the day. But on a hot day, it was SO WORTH it.
Remember this one? The Corkscrew was 70 feet high and 1,250 feet long. It now operates at an amusement park in India.
The Mind Eraser opened at Geauga Lake in 1996. It was one of the first rides installed after Premier purchased the park. It was renamed Head Spin when Cedar Fair purchased the park from Six Flags.
