There’s few things in life that makes people feel more adult than buying a home. While it can be exciting, the mortgage and upkeep that comes with home ownership arrives hand-in-hand with the full brunt of fiscal responsibility.
However, in Northeast Ohio, developers are working with local government planning agencies to help make homeowners feel like kids again -- at least in some ways -- because these new homes will be built on the site of a former amusement park.
Geauga Lake was an amusement park that operated some of the biggest and oldest wooden roller coasters in the United States. It wasn’t as well known outside the Buckeye state as similar parks such as Cedar Point and King’s Island, but Geauga Lake remained a popular vacation spot with nearby residents until its closing in 2007. Covering more than a square mile and sharing a walkway bridge with the only Sea World north of the Mason-Dixon Line, the facility was a day-trip destination to millions of parents and kids alike.
