GL Corkscrew lives on greeting card

Sunday, July 8, 2001 1:30 PM
My dad sent a birthday card to me with an Arrow corkscrew on it. In the background, I could see the lift turn-around of a white woodie, a monorail, and some other small building. I pieced the surroundings together with one of the SFWoA sites in our site directory, and sure enough confirmed that it was the old Geauga Lake Corkscrew.

If you're a collector, you might want to find that. It's an American Greetings card (no surprise, since they're based here in Cleveland).

Hey Jeff, do you think you could scan it? I barely remember the old GL Corkscrew, I wonder why they did get rid of it? Was it to make room for the Mind Eraser?

Mind Eraser is right where Corkscrew was. I think that they got rid of so they could sell it to make enough money for Mind Eraser.

I think that I saw that card at a Super Kmart but I don't remember where.

Corkscrew was in worse condition than Double Loop and when Premier Parks bought the park, they took it out to make way for Mind Eraser. That's what I believe happened.
