Opening in 1878, Chippewa Park is another site with history reaching back to the 19th century. Located in Medina, Ohio, the park started life as a picnic area, Andrew’s Pleasure Grounds, named after owner Edward Andrews. A few years later the park introduced a roller coaster, which was later joined by the first modern coaster, the Big Dipper, in the 20s.

The park started losing popularity in the late 1960s, and after changing owners a few times closed permanently in 1978 at 100 years old. Many of the structures still occupy the area today, including roller coaster and ferris wheel remains.
