A new drone video has surfaced online showing the remains of what used to be a bustling amusement park, but now lays in ruins.

Geauga Lake, aka Six Flags Worlds of Adventure was an amusement park located in Aurora, Ohio, and has had a lengthy history of opening and closing.  The original park, Geauga Lake, opened in 1887.  Then in 1969, Funtime Incorporated purchased the park, continuing to add various rides and attractions over several years.  Six Flags purchased the park in 2000, and then renamed the park Six Flags Worlds of Adventure after Six Flags purchased SeaWorld Ohio.

The park was eventually sold to Cedar Fair by Six Flags and was renamed Geagua Lake by the company, but only stayed open for three years.  Cedar Fair eventually distributed several coasters within the park to other parks within the Cedar Fair chain.

Cedar Fair is still currently trying to sell of the land to buyers.
