What happened to Geauga Lake, Six Flags Ohio, and SeaWorld Ohio?:
The mega-park never generated the numbers Six Flags had anticipated, and the troubled company reduced some of its mounting debt by selling the property to rival chain, Cedar Fair (owner of Cedar Point) in 2004. Cedar Fair closed the marine life exhibits, and relocated the water park to the former SeaWorld site in 2005. After four disappointing seasons, Cedar Fair (which purchased Kings Island and the rest of Paramount Parks in 2006 and faced its own debt issues) announced that it would permanently close the amusement park in 2007.
Geauga Lake will live on, in name anyway. The water park, now known as Geauga Lake's Wildwater Kingdom, remains open.
