Premier Parks, Inc. (later known as Six Flags) purchased Geauga Lake from Funtime, Inc. in the mid 1990's. When the park opened for its 2000 season the name was changed to Six Flags Ohio.

Early 2004 Cedar Fair purchased the park and reverted back to the park's original name, Geauga Lake Park.

Within a week after the 2007 season, Cedar Fair announced that the park would be downsized. The water park would open for the 2008 season, the amusement park would not. Instead the rides and attractions would be auctioned off.
