The $24-million waterpark is about a 40-minute drive east of downtown Cleveland. Owned by the same company that runs Cedar Point, Geauga Lake formerly operated as an amusement park but is now exclusively a water-based attraction. Visitors can play wet basketball in the Coral Cove activity pool, surf in the 30,000-square-foot Tidal Wave Bay, climb the four-story, interactive Splash Landing, or bob along in an inner tube on Riptide Run.
