Pics of Corkscrew at SFWOA

Monday, May 14, 2001 11:40 AM
Does anyone know where I can get a couple of pictures of the old Corkscrew which used to be at Geauga Lake. I ask this because I have no clue what this coaster looks like but I went there when it was still there. Thank you!

Search eBay for "Geauga Lake" and you'll usually find some corkscrew postcards. If you don't want to buy them, they still usually have good scans.

Also, www.rcdb.com whenever their new server gets up and running.

Could you describe the ruckus?

I remember when the Corkscrew area was all employee parking lot! I would ride the Paratrooper, Catapillar, and Trabant and see rows of cars....

It looked like it was a fun ride I think that would have been a ride to keep around and put the Mind Erasor at the other end of the park next to RWB. But it is to late now.

If you're feeling nostalgic, you can just ride any of the other stock "Corkscrew" rides, including the one at CP. Close your eyes and pretend it's Geauga Lake.

kpjb,

You are right in saying that Geagua Lake's corkscrew was one of the stock models, but CP's Corkscrew is not. Silverwood, Knotts, BG Tampa, MA, and a few others have (had) the basic Corkscrew model. CP and Valleyfair's corkscrews are a slight variation upon these (with a vertical loop and some hills / helixes added).

Yeah, Geauga Lake's Corkscrew was very mediocre. It was so short, it was over before you left the station. :) The line was always short, though, and I could ride probably 5 times in 20 minutes.
