|El Dorado in 2005|
|Capacity||32 per cycle|
El Dorado was a 1001 Nacht built by German manufacturer Weber that was previously located at Kings Dominion in Doswell, Virginia, USA.
The ride opened in 1991 at Geauga Lake and was called Mirage. After the 1999 season, the ride was removed and rethemed. It reopened under the new name El Dorado in 2001. After the 2007 season, Cedar Fair announced that the amusement park side of Geauga Lake would not reopen for the 2008 season. El Dorado was subsequently dismantled and sent to Kings Dominion, where it reopened on April 4, 2009.
El Dorado was removed after the 2011 season. As of December 2012, the ride remained in the park's boneyard.
