The Big Dipper Is For Sale On eBay

The Big Dipper, still standing at the former site of Geauga Lake Amusement Park, can now be yours for a starting bid of just $9,500 via this eBay auction. The coaster has been for sale for some time, but there has not been much movement as far as legitimate interest goes.

There have been many chapters in the ride's story since the park closed, and this is just the latest one. It does, however, open the door to a possible buyer for the ride who would have no intention of moving/rebuilding it. I would think if someone was really interested in getting the ride back up and running the gears would have already been in motion at this point - we're nearly three years out since the park closed.

You can be sure I'll watch the auction to see if anyone bids, though.
