Serious Geauga Demo Photos

© 2008 daveb86

Here's a link to a thread on Geauga Lake Today that has photos of the Geauga Lake demolition of Villain and Double Loop from inside the park - and other park photos. Look at that turn on the Villain! Can you imagine if that's how it was when it operated ... reminds me of the crazy stuff you'd see on the old Harry Traver coasters.

While the photos are depressing, there is some good news. The Geauga County Historical Society did raise enough money to get the Hay Bayler building out of Geauga Lake before it was demo-ed.

Now they will work on raising the funds to rebuild the structure and turn it into a mini museum of sorts for the park. Stay tuned.

What a shame! Villain quickly became my #1 wood during my first trek to Six Flags Worlds of Adventure. It's a shame they kept the G-trains, because even though the ride was built in 2000, the G-trains made it feel 20 years older in later years. The layout was great, if another park moved the ride and installed PTC trains, it could easily be an undisputable top 10 wood coaster.
