Overgrown ferris wheel at the abandoned amusement park in Chippewa Lake Park in Ohio, closed in 1978. First opened in 1878, the park has been unused for 31 years. Trees now grow through the ferris wheel and coaster tracks. Most of the rides are now gone, though the remnants of a few rides remain. Soon all the rides will be gone as a developer has bought the site Source: malformalady
Chippewa Lake was once a place where many families would come to make memories together. Now, what was once the largest roller coaster in the park sits in a swamp, and the old Ferris Wheel is rusting away. It's crazy to witness the loss of such an attraction.
