Chippewa Lake- closed for the season

Chippewa Lake , near Cleveland, was an amusement park that operated for well over a hundred years, closing in 1979. It is a ghost town of old rides and deteriorating buildings. The ferris wheel has a tree growing all the way up through the iron structure; the teacup ride in the foreground still has it's cars in position since it was shut down 31 years ago. The roller coaster framework is in remarkably good condition, being made from cedar.
