Wildwater Kingdom is not reopening in 2009 according to a rumor buried in a Coasternet article mainly about a delayed coaster in Dubai:

"However, Geauga Lake Water Park, after closing its "dry park" in 2006, will not open in 2009 due to financial difficulties."
Cedar Fair filed documents with the SEC today that indicate Geauga Lake's Wildwater Kingdom is one of their parks, and there is nothing about it closing in the local media or anywhere else. The WWK website is still up and indicates that "Wildwater Kingdom operates May 23 through September 7, 2009."
Like I said, I don't believe it, but I have learned the hard way that sometimes the very worst Geauga Lake rumors can turn out to be true.
I hope if Cedar Fair ever does close it, they give people one last chance to walk around the last operating remnant of Sea World and Geauga Lake, ride a few waves, buy some merchandise and get some pictures.
