Octopus ride at Buckeye Lake   Save
Ohio Guide Collection
Description: The photograph shows the octopus ride at Buckeye Lake's amusement park. The ride has eight cars which rotate around a central axis. Lights adorn the arms. In the background a large building can be seen. Visitors to Buckeye Lake today can find only one remaining remnant of the old Buckeye Lake Amusement Park, a fountain that is located as the Buckeye Lake State Park's North Shore. Although the amusement park no longer exists, the Buckeye Lake State Park still attracts a number of visitors to the area each year. In addition, many people own vacation homes near the lake or live in the area year round. View on Ohio Memory.
