RipCord was a Skycoaster built by Sky Fun 1 Inc. formerly located at Geauga Lake in Aurora, Ohio, USA.


When the ride first opened in 1999, it was known as Geronimo.[1]

In 2004, Geauga Lake was sold to Cedar Fair and the ride was renamed RipCord.

RipCord operated for the last time on September 16, 2007. Five days later, it was announced that the closure of Geauga Lake would be a permanent one.[2]
