interesting pov and colour enhancements. Is this at Chippewa Lake Park?
yeah! have you ever been there?….it is about to be torn down- we didn’t even know if it still exsisted
Interesting. I’d hate to tear down something amusing, wouldn’t you?
This is sooooo cool!!! I guess it’s “no longer amusing”, huh?
this is awesome!
I love this shot…love the effect you did, it makes it seem more interesting and maybe a bit more spooky too! Where did you find this old coaster?
Thank you! My dad and I found a website for photographers and sometime adrenaline junkies about these old abandoned or haunted places in Ohio. This was taken at Chippewa Lake Amusement Park. It was supposed to be torn down by the time of the photo- fortunately it was not…but I assume it is gone now. This is, in or near Lodi, Ohio. This place opened up about 1870 and was open and running for 100 years. Because the competition with Cedar Point they had to close in 1970 and has been abandoned since. This place holds (or held) one of 4 ladybug rides in the world. One was at Chippewa and one was in England I don’t recall where the others were.
For me, this place holds so much history. It is illegal to go to- but I feel it is a sin not to go if you have the opportunity..lol. The plan was to tear it down and replace it with apartments. After chippewa was abandoned it was raided and almost anything of value was stolen and then the ballroom was burned down in a massive fire. -But these photographs and the history there held more value to me, then anything I could have taken back with me.

I’m with you, somewhere I would have wanted to visit,espcially with all the history there. It is sad sometimes to lose such structures. This also reminds me of a Dean Koontz book called “Hideaway”. I thinks that’s why is creeps me out a lil, but I’m still sad I missed it. So, do you remember the name of that website you and your dad found, sounds like something worth my time in dial-up internet.Thanks girl and thanks for the information on that old park, very interesting!
ha ha. hope my response wasn’t too lengthy. I can’t recall the website. I think we googled ghost towns. Because I used to be obsessed with ghost towns sometimes I got to travel with my dad during the summers because he is a truck driver- and I always wanted to find one
